David Cameron is to counter claims that his campaign against international corruption is hobbled by London’s reputation as the money laundering capital of the world by introducing a new corporate offence for executives who fail to prevent fraud or money laundering inside their companies. Writing in the Guardian before Thursday’s anti-corruption summit in the capital, the prime minister reveals plans to require all foreign companies buying property in the UK to disclose their true owners in a public register for the first time. By extending a corporate failure-to-prevent clause to fraud and money laundering, the government’s intention is to go further than merely requiring firms to prevent bribery and tax evasion. Should an employee be charged with money laundering, the company will be deemed liable if it cannot show that it had put procedures in place to prevent money laundering and fraud. Cameron describes corruption as “one of the greatest enemies to … [Read more...] about David Cameron to introduce new corporate money-laundering offence

Even if you did, though, you’re probably a dabbler: you have little choice. Many people, and perhaps you’re one of them, share a queasy feeling that something has gone badly wrong with the world economy – but can’t quite put their finger on what the source of the trouble is. Once you understand the nature of offshore tax havens, you should feel closer to pinning down the answers. Before I explain what they are, and why powerful governments don’t just close them down, I want you to take part in a short challenge. See if you can dodge all my bear traps, and declare yourself untainted by tax havens. If you succeed, you win my Hermit of the Year prize. Do you celebrate Christmas? If you do (or even if you do not), did you buy any gifts on Amazon last December? If so, then your goods were quite likely to … [Read more...] about Follow the money: inside the world’s tax havens
Campaigners are urging David Cameron to use a meeting with leaders of Britain’s overseas territories this week to demand a crackdown on tax dodging, corruption and money laundering. Leading charities, including Oxfam and ActionAid, have written to the prime minister to highlight the “murky” world of shell companies that set up in territories such as the British Virgin and Cayman Islands, thereby depriving developing countries of billions of dollars in tax revenues. Before the government’s meetings with the heads of overseas territories in London on Tuesday and Wednesday, the 11 NGOs remind Cameron of his commitment to tackle the abuse of anonymous companies and his promise in the Tory’s election manifesto to “continue to lead the world on tax and transparency”. The letter, seen by the Guardian, says: “The UK-linked overseas territories, including the British Virgin and Cayman Islands, are leading international suppliers of anonymity, … [Read more...] about Demand overseas territories crack down on tax dodging shell firms, PM told
