CAYMAN ISLANDS TO DISCLOSE HIDDEN COMPANIES AND DIRECTORS







The source for this story is CNBC. Apparently this effort involves hedge funds only.

Class Warfare Exists


The Cayman Islands has been just one of a handful of countries which
are primarily used for tax evasion by exploiting the tax code and the
protections of foreign governments. As a British territory – their laws
are very much under the influence of what Britain does and doesn’t
want. Which makes it all the more interesting that the Cayman Islands
monetary authority is now going to be disclosing a laundry list of
previously hidden corporations and hedge funds using the Caymans for
cover from transparency. In addition – the names of those involved will
be visible for the first time as well which will make it that much
easier for Western governments to identify tax schemes. This is an
assault on tax cheats – mainly corporations and wealthy individuals.

The Caymans Islands is just the latest country to submit to banking transparency in a very long recent list.

CNBC has the news HERE:

The British overseas territory, which wants to shed its
reputation for clandestine financial activity, is introducing sweeping
reforms that will make public the names of thousands of previously
hidden companies and their directors.

In proposals sent to Cayman-based hedge fund businesses and seen by the Financial Times,
the islands’ powerful monetary authority, CIMA, has outlined plans to
create a public database of funds domiciled on the island for the first
time. The database will also list funds’ directors, pending an ongoing
consultation process due to close in mid-March.

CIMA, which did not respond to a request for comment, also plans to
require directors to undergo a vetting process to ensure they are
qualified to act as fiduciaries for investors.
Since President Obama was sworn into office – the American government
has actively pursued breaking tax havens. Many banks in Switzerland
won’t take American clients because of the pressure being exerted on the
Switzerland government and the mini banking cartel that exists in
Zurich (source).
For the first time in modern history – Switzerland is actively
disclosing personal banking information to the American authorities (source). This can only be the result of leverage which the Obama administration is exerting to its fullest.

The Obama administration entered into a treaty with Ireland – another
tax haven – to share financial information in December of 2012 (source);
it’s notable that this happened after Obama won re-election. The Obama
administration has negotiated treaties with Hungary, Switzerland and
Luxembourg for open and transparent disclosure between governments to
catch tax cheats – all three of these countries are used as tax havens.
Currently – these treaties are being held up by Rand Paul in the Senate
(source).
In short – the Obama administration has been on a worldwide mission to
destroy tax shelters that the wealthy use to avoid paying their taxes.

The decision to make the Caymans more transparent is either the
result of the LIBOR scandal or the American government requesting
changes from the Brits. The British is one of America’s closest allies
and I suspect they would be willing to entertain concerns shared by the
Obama administration. We really don’t know why the British pushed this
through.

The Offenders

If they’re a multi-national corporation or a hedge fund – they’re
probably abusing tax law by using offshore tax havens. U.S.
corporations have anywhere from $1.4 to $2 trillion in cash just sitting
in offshore banks right now (source).
They have gamed the system and the only way they can bring the money
back is if they pay a higher tax rate. They’re putting tremendous
pressure on politicians to give a “one time tax holiday” just like the
“one time tax holiday” the Bush administration allowed for in 2004.
That would be a disaster and would reward tax evasion.

Microsoft avoided paying $7 billion in taxes from 2009 to 2012 according to a Senate committee HERE.

CNBC highlights how Halliburton has been able to do this HERE:

U.S. law does ban virtually all commerce with the rogue
nations, but there’s a loophole that G.E., Conoco-Phillips and
Halliburton have exploited: The law does not apply to any foreign or
offshore subsidiary so long as it is run by non-Americans.

“These three companies, as far as we were concerned, appear to have
violated the spirit of the law,” says Thompson. “In the case of
Halliburton, as an example, they have an offshore subsidiary in the
Cayman Islands. That subsidiary is doing business with Iran.”

That subsidiary, Halliburton Products and Services, Ltd., is wholly
owned by the U.S.-based Halliburton and is registered in a building in
the capital of the Cayman Islands – a building owned by the local
Calidonian Bank. Halliburton and other companies set up in this
Caribbean Island, because of tax and secrecy laws that are corporate
friendly.
Google has used the Cayman Islands and other offshore tax havens to
manipulate the tax code. In 2010 – they paid 2.4% on $60 billion in
revenues. Bloomberg wrote a must read HERE.

Facebook paid just .3% on its profits in 2011 thanks to utilizing offshore tax havens like the CaymansHERE.

Americans became much more aware of the loopholes used by the ultra
wealthy during the 2012 election precisely because of Mitt Romney’s
history of manipulating the tax code. We’ve written about that many
times but there is this one from the NY Times that makes it clear tax
avoidance using offshore tax havens like the Caymans is just how they do
business (source).

The Senate Banking Committee put out an excellent memo highlighting
how these corporations and ultra wealthy are manipulating the tax code
via offshore tax havens HERE; drug cartels and terrorist organizations use the same methods too btw.
