"Do not hide your money in banks and corners!" London unveils offshore assets

Next week, the British Parliament is going to vote for a bill providing for the public disclosure of the names of the beneficiaries of offshore companies in the British Virgin and Cayman Islands, writes The Times British publication.


"Do not hide your money in banks and corners!" London unveils offshore assets


A group of parliamentarians from the Conservative, as well as the Liberal and other opposition parties in the UK intend to propose a bill that will oblige the British Virgin Islands, Caymans and other overseas territories to disclose the owners of hidden assets registered in these jurisdictions.

Supporters of the initiative believe that the secrecy of beneficial ownership in low-tax jurisdictions allows money laundering, which contributes to corruption, criminal activity and harassment, including in Russia.

At the moment, the overseas territories under British sovereignty, but not part of the country, are exempt from the requirement in the United Kingdom to disclose the names of the owners of assets.

The British Virgin Islands (BVI) are among the three most low-tax jurisdictions most popular with Russian businesses. So, according to the SPARK-Interfax system, only among the direct owners of Russian legal entities (excluding individuals) 4600 are companies registered on BVI. According to this indicator, BVI overtakes only Cyprus and the Seychelles. A significant number of owners of Russian companies are also in the Bahamas, in Gibraltar.

          Yes, not, firstly, Teresa and Boris are so stupid that they even can’t take bribes and cut the budget.

        Well familiar with the mechanics of acquiring and owning offshore. Usually they are drawn up as dummies, and you have nothing to do with them - everything is handled by a bank or a financial organization that provides this service. If you plan to drive out large volumes, then the founders are usually not physical, but legal entities, also usually offshore.
        In short, only "stupid people" opened offshore companies, but these "stupid people" ended back in the 90s smile

          I also agree that it is unlikely - banks will simply lose customers. Do they need it? Disclosure of the confidentiality of the deposit only upon request (or decision) of the court.

      Sergey agrees! But their calculation is more subtle, like see who you voted for solid thieves, etc. In order for the “people to come out” to the swamp, demanding the resignation of everyone and everything, the unrest in Russia began. Let them publish, we all will be interested hehe heh Just introduce the death penalty and EVERYTHING! negative

    That's it, that including Russia. And besides our country, the British will be waiting for great surprise and perhaps concern about the need (worth it or not) to disclose the data.

    I have a vague suspicion that the West does not understand what it is doing ... Okay, sanctions are an expected and justified move, but with offshore and other measures in the field ... hmm ... secrets of deposits ... They should understand that cash flows will start in a panic to change direction in a chaotic way, and when account holders see that all the moves are blocked for them, and other similar owners abroad die like flies, then money that was not arrested by the West from former offshore companies will flow to their homeland ... It seems at the top West every second "Russian agent" ...

      I have long suspected that the West’s government is Putin’s agents. Otherwise, I just can’t explain their suicidal policy. They literally do everything so that their own people do not believe them. And in order to strengthen the influence of Russia both internally and externally. Naturally, all this is not explicit ....

    Something is not heard the voices of concern about this issue of our parliamentarians, probably speechless. Although it is hard to believe that London will go to the disclosure of the offshore of our embezzlers, this is where the "poor" traitor and traitor of the Motherland will go.

    Chu scared. "Smart" people have not "held" anything in their name for a long time. For this there are "trusts", venture capital funds, etc. Virgin and Cayman Islands? Phi. There are other "legal" offshores in the United States itself (for companies such as LLCs): Delaware, Nevada, Oregon, Wyoming. Florida, Texas, and South Dakota, as well as other states that do not have a corporate or personal income tax, are the most favorable states for business taxes. In addition, the registration of offshore companies in the territory of ... Indian Reservations began to gain popularity. In general, I got the impression that all this offshore “struggle” was started by the USA in order to lure all offshore companies to itself, under its jurisdiction.

      As an option ... America now needs a lot of state debt, which is not small, although I’m so naive, we ourselves will repay this debt from our own pockets.

    In economics, there is the concept of "lag." This rattle means a temporary period from the adoption of a legislative act to the beginning of its real effect on the economy. He takes a pound in half a year after making such a decision - they themselves destroy their financial pyramid, withdraw money and reduce the number of transactions and financial coverage - the pound sways.
