Webinar | Trouble in Paradise?

Registration is now closed, please complete the form on the right to access the webinar recording.

As new leaks continue to emerge, learn how the Paradise Papers impact you, your firm and what you need to do to minimise your risk exposure to sanctioned and other undesired parties.

The recent cache of leaked documents published by The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) on 5 November 2017 provides names of some of world’s biggest businesses, heads of state and global figures in politics, entertainment and sport.


Dubbed the "Paradise Papers", the leaks show how deeply the offshore financial system is entangled with the overlapping worlds of political players, private wealth and corporate giants that avoid taxes through increasingly imaginative accounts maneuvers. With a total of 13.4 million records exposed, the Paradise Papers is one of the largest leaks to date and calls into question the legitimacy of tax practices of the wealthy.
