"By funneling nearly $10 billion in revenue into a Bermuda shell company last year, Google dodged about $2 billion in income taxes worldwide, Bloomberg News reports, citing financial records. The off-shore tax shelter — legal in the United States and elsewhere — cut Google's tax rate nearly in half, Bloomberg says. Bermuda has no corporate income tax. Bloomberg says the amount saved was about 80% of the company's pre-tax profit."* Google has employed some pretty impressive tricks in avoiding paying their taxes, keeping $2 billion they should have paid in taxes worldwide. But don't worry, someone else will pay the bill. Us. Will the U.S. government crack down on Google? Cenk Uygur knows the answer. *Read more from Michael Winter/ USA Today: http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2012/12/10/...
"Where do multinationals pay taxes and how much?" Gaining insight from international tax experts, Backlight takes a look at tax havens, the people who live there and the routes along which tax is avoided globally. Those routes go by resounding names like 'Cayman Special', 'Double Irish', and 'Dutch Sandwich'. A financial world operates in the shadows surrounded by a high level of secrecy. A place where sizeable capital streams travel the world at the speed of light and avoid paying tax. The Tax Free Tour is an economic thriller mapping the systemic risk for governments and citizens alike. Is this the price we have to pay for globalised capitalism? At the same time, the free online game "Taxodus" by Femke Herregraven is launched. In the game, the player can select the profile of a multina...

Top Tax Planning Uses For Offshore Trusts - Part 1 There are now numerous anti avoidance provisions that can apply, however for the well advised there are still options available to use these tax efficiently. The big advantage of an offshore trust is that, just like all non residents it is exempt from UK tax on foreign income, and exempt from UK CGT (unless the assets sold are UK business assets). This could lead to massive tax planning advantages. The difficulties come in side stepping the anti avoidance rules that can tax UK settlors and beneficiaries on the trust income and capital gains. Here's the top uses for offshore trusts: 1. When the settlors/beneficiaries a...
A story of money, secrecy and greed: a tax dodge for the wealthy dreamed up by one of the biggest accounting giants in the world KPMG Canada devised what it called an “Offshore Company Structure” for a select group of rich clients: they would claim to give away millions of dollars to a shell company supposedly out of their control and therefore wouldn’t have to pay taxes on it. In the U.S., top KPMG officials were convicted of tax evasion schemes concocted there. But in Canada, a different scheme led to a secret amnesty deal with the Canada Revenue Agency. A federal government inquiry vowing to get to the bottom of it went nowhere What was the accounting firm trying to hide? With revelations from industry insiders, internal KPMG documents and corporate records from the Isle of Man of...

Top Tax Planning Uses For Offshore Trusts - Part 2 As a CGT shelter where family are excluded As we've seen above the anti avoidance rules attribute capital gains to the settlor where beneficiaries include: • the settlor • his spouse • their children and their spouses • their grandchildren and their spouses Therefore if an offshore trust was made by remote relations or friends of the beneficiaries they could be effective in avoiding capital gains tax being attributed to the settlor. A good option for this is to hold shares in newly formed trading companies. The initial set up cost would be low and you could always ask a remote relation to set up the trust. You could ...

You're not going to believe my interview with economist James Henry on the $30 Trillion dollars in tax havens! Some of the highlights: Tax havens are being used to hide and house 15% of the world’s wealth. Shell companies are being used off shore so that corporations avoid paying taxes. Representation without taxation. We tried inflation, debt and privations but the only way to support a society is taxes. It’s not a Global Mafia: it’s worse, the rich and corporations have created laws to support their ability to evade paying taxes. The difference between tax shelter and tax evasion is a jail cell. Since the recession the top 1% is not only making insane profits but avoiding paying more and more taxes. A Great Society cannot survive without having the means to support it and a regressive ta...

A tax haven is a jurisdiction where particular taxes, such as an inheritance tax or income tax, are levied at a low rate or not at all. It may also refer to a state, country, or territory which maintains a system of financial secrecy, which enables foreign individuals to hide assets or income to avoid or reduce taxes in the home jurisdiction. Earnings from income generated from real estate (i.e. by renting property owned in an offshore jurisdiction) can also be eliminated in this way. If taxes (if any) are paid in the tax haven jurisdiction, companies can avoid taxes in their home jurisdiction because the tax had already been paid in the lower tax rate jurisdiction. Some taxes (such as inheritance tax on the real estate, VAT on the initial purchase price of the real estate, or transfer tax...
Another vacant building is a tax shelter and nothing more
Cemented doors and windows keeping out the poor
What purpose does it serve to keep these buildings emply
Destroying our community to protect abandoned property
Functioning as financial loopholes instead of the housing they could make
Because those owning empty buildings claim a generous government tax break
So is housing just a luxury to b enjoyed by the upper class
Another right you don't deserve if you haven't got the cash
The trouble with ruling class financial tactics
Is that it's the people who need shelter not their taxes
Destruciton described as progress evicting people from their shelter
Renovating and rebuilding under the guise of making cities better
But who does this progress better by putting people in the street
Has it benefitted the community when construction is complete
Housing is not a privledge, not a luxury but a right
communities don't function any better with their problems out of sight
Our communities consise of more than concrete, brick and steel
It's made up of people including the homeless they conceal
The trouble with ruling class financial tactics
Is that it's the people who need the shelter not their taxes
Every inch of established land got that way by means of force
And by paying rent were forced to contribute to that source
With our communities our people suffer under this establishment
It's not about housing these are human rights they make us rent
Only the landlords profit as our lives are sold and bought
And those who fight this process get evicted from their squat
So while our leaders carry out these unjust squat evictions
They prove that freedom can't exist under capitalist conditions
The trouble with ruling class financial tactics
