From LuxLeaks and onwards: the impressive and award-winning LuxLeaks revelations carried out by the ICIJ pointed out the problem of access to tax avoidance in the heart of Europe. But Luxembourg is not the only country with such provisions.

While LuxLeaks had a leak as starting point, SOMO started from scratch. Hear the methodology of both examples and learn how to unravel tax avoidance schemes.
