How does the automatic exchange of information work?
The automatic exchange of information (AEOI) is the new international standard in tax matters. From 2017/2018, tax relevant data from bank clients will be automatically exchanged between tax authorities of participating countries. This short film aims to answer the most important questions about the AEOI: How does it work, which data will be exchanged, what are the consequences for the clients?

AEOI: Automatic Exchange of Information on Financial Accounts.
My last video about Automatic Exchange of Information on Financial Accounts. This is the first ever agreement to exchange this type of information automatically between the jurisdictions that signed the agreement under a single global standard on an annual basis. 54 jurisdictions committed to start the information exchange by 2017, 47 jurisdictions more by 2018. If you are operating a business outside of your country of citizenship or residency you should be aware of the new reporting standards! --------------------------------------------------- Contact Astorts Group: 👉🏻 www.astortsconsulting.com 👉🏻 [email protected] 📞 +442037402520 📞 +85235212835 📞 +74991123783 --------------------------------------------------- #bank #exchange #aeoi #fatca #money #investment #forex #broker #wealthmanagement #familyoffice #bankaccount #like4like #london #moscow #hongkong #astortsgroup #offshore

Common Reporting Standard (English)
The Dutch government is cooperating with other countries to prevent tax evasion. The Common Reporting Standard (CRS) is a system for automatic exchange of information on financial accounts between CRS participating countries. On behalf of CRS, Dutch law requires all financial institutions, such as Rabobank, to determine foreign tax residence of their clients

FATCA and CRS in Asia Pacific: Developments and Next Steps
The automatic exchange of information is rapidly becoming the global standard. Many countries have committed to implementing the OECD's Common Reporting Standard (CRS) beginning in 2017 and with others following in 2018. At the same time, the U.S. Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) continues to pose challenges. CRS builds upon FATCA, and is intended to provide a global standard for the automatic exchange of financial account information between governments, but there are differences between FATCA and CRS and between jurisdictions. Learn about the current status of these global standards in Asia Pacific and how you should prepare going forward. (Live presentation was aired on 13 Aug 2015) www.deloitte.com/ap/dbriefs

Exchange of tax information [Plenary Podcast]
Lack of information-sharing between tax authorities prevents them from correctly assessing the actual tax situation when several countries are involved. The need to remedy this is now widely accepted and some progress are realised, though they are only steps in the right direction.

History of globalization
Script: Globalization is a process of interaction and integration among the people, companies, and governments of different nations. A process driven by international trade and investment. This process has effects on the environment, on culture, on political systems, on economic development and on human physical well-being in societies around the world. The first phase of globalization is heavily characterized by the exchange of knowledge and less by the exchange of goods. Notable events during that phase, which took place from the 15th to the 18th century, are the Portuguese and Spanish discoveries of America, the introduction of the Gregorian calendar and the discovery of the heliocentric view of the solar system. The 18th and the 19th century are usually associated with democracy, industrialization and scientific progress. The American Declaration of Independence in the year 1776 helped the spread of democratic ideals, which many countries use even now. In the 19th century the industrialization took place, which gave the world significant technological progress and allowed for easier and faster exchange of goods and information between countries. Only a few decades later the phase of imperialism and international expansion started: International trade relations became stronger thanks to the free trade and the first international competitions like the Olympics or the Nobel Prize Awards were held. The second phase of globalization covers the period of intensive internationalization of transportation systems, communications, commerce and science. During the second half of the 19th century, the Western world experienced a dramatic intensification of international connectivity due to four advancing technologies–trains, steamships, the telegraph, and the postal system. At the turn of the 20th century, an affluent inhabitant of London had access to many products of foreign origin before the events of August 1914 disrupted this world of global connectivity. The third phase of globalization, which began in 1945, was made possible by the long economic expansion that followed after the end of the Second World War. The period from the late 1940s to the early 1970s is called the Golden Age of Capitalism. This new global economic order was aimed at preventing a return of the catastrophic economic conditions from the Great Depression of the 1930s. This international order called for close cooperation between nations, as opposed to the destructive economic competitions between nations of the 1930s. New international financial agreements and institutions, such as the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, provided a new kind of global financial stability. The Golden Age of Capitalism ended during the early 1970s. It has been replaced by slower growth and a series of global financial crises related to the triumph of neoliberal market globalism. The neoliberal globalism is characterized by free trade, deregulation of the corporate sector and competition between certain companies instead of competition between countries. Improved communication, and especially the Internet, accelerated the financial market and the speed of transaction. All those historical phases bring us to the world we are living in today – with easy access to lots of information and the ability to buy goods from all around the world.

How the tax man will find out about your account
A law effectively putting an end to Swiss banking secrecy has come into force. This report shows how bank data will be exchanged between countries. (SRF/swissinfo.ch) From the beginning of January, a new international law that introduced the automatic exchange of bank data means foreign citizens with accounts in Switzerland can expect previously secret information to be shared with their home tax authorities, and vice versa. It’s a deal that’s been agreed in principle with around 100 countries, although the United States is notably missing. However, it was under pressure from the US that the first cracks in Swiss banking secrecy appeared. Since 2009, Swiss banks have paid billions in fines for enabling Americans to evade taxes. The US Justice authorities started clamping down on American tax evaders hiding cash in Swiss accounts almost a decade ago. The recent change has attracted attention internationally. On platforms such as Reddit people wondered where those who had stored their money in Switzerland will move it to. Switzerland signed the global convention in 2014, paving the way for the new legislation to come into force. But some Swiss legal experts fear it comes at the expense of personal rights. --- swissinfo.ch is the international branch of the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation (SBC).

Intro to the Multi Data Exchange Solution
Struggling to comply with growing global information exchange needs? A key aspect of global cooperation between countries and tax authorities is data sharing in the fight against tax evasion. It is crucial that the technical solutions implemented by Tax Authorities to exchange data meets all requirements of the organisations imposing the new cooperation regulations, like the IRS and the OECD. The Multi Data Exchange Soltion or MDES is the only true full-service data exchange package for Tax Authorities to comply with FATCA and CRS regulations.
Types of Electric Telegraphs
Types of Electric TelegraphsJust two centuries ago people used mail as practically the only means of communication. Naturally message delivery was limited by the traveling speed of couriers. Therefore, exchange of information between, for example, countries and continents was very slow. For example, it took at least two weeks to deliver mail from America to Europe. That is why invention of telegraph was the real revolution that transformed many aspects of people's life at that time.The electric telegraph appeared when electrochemical batteries had been invented and spread out, and the electrolysis phenomenon was studied. In 1809 Zemering designed a device that could be used to communicate. He suggested use of gas bubbles that evolved while the current was passing through an electrolyte, such as salt water. Zemering's telegraph consisted of a voltaic column, i.e. galvanic battery; an alphabet in which letters corresponded to 24 separate wires connected to the voltaic column through a wire, a rope of 24 wound together wires for connection between stations; another alphabet, located at the station receiving messages. There separate wires passed through the bottom of a glass vessel with water. After the receiving station was ready for reception, the sender connected poles of the wires so that the electric current passed in succession through all the letters that the transmitted message consisted of, and the bubbles that were formed when the current passed through the vessel with water, separated from the respective letters at the other station. Thus, observing how bubbles appeared at electrodes corresponding to a certain letter one could make up a message. Then, by wires, one could send messages over distances of several kilometers, but to receive them was, of course, very tiring. This form of communication did not become wide spread.But after a few decades after magnetic properties of electrical current had been studied, Paul Schilling proposed construction of a new telegraph, this time an electromagnetic one. Schilling's transfer device consisted of a keyboard of 16 keys to close the current. The receiving device consisted of 6 galvanometers with magnetic needles, suspended on silken threads to copper uprights. Above the needles two-color paper flags were reinforced on a string: one side of it was painted in white, the other - in black. Both stations of Shilling's telegraph were connected by eight wires, six of them were connected to the galvanometers, one was used for reverse current, and one - for the calling device. When at the starting station a key was pressed and current was started, the corresponding needle deviated at the receiving station. Various positions of the black and white flags on different disk plates provided conditional combinations corresponding to letters of the alphabet or numbers...

OECD Global Forum on Development 2018
OECD Global Forum on Development 2018 5 April 2018, OECD headquarters, Paris, France http://www.oecd.org/site/oecdgfd Of the world’s 7.6 billion people, more than 4 billion are at a disadvantage in terms of health, education or economic opportunities only because they are young, a woman or both. This is everyone’s loss: the economic, social and legal obstacles hindering their well-being also limit their contribution to making the world a better place for all. The international community has a roadmap to empower women and youth, enshrined in Agenda 2030. But progress has been slow. The 2018 Global Forum on Development will take stock of the progress to date, and debate how policies can keep the promise of unleashing the power of women and youth as critical agents of change. Mark your calendars to meet high-level representatives from governments, businesses, foundations and international organisations, and share your ideas on concrete ways to achieve greater prosperity for all. We will specifically discuss solutions to the challenges of including youth in development processes, creating decent jobs for rural youth, recognising and reducing women’s unpaid care and domestic work, and understanding the links between gender inequality and conflict/fragile contexts.
English/Nat China and India signed a bilateral agreement on China's entry into the World Trade Organization (W-T-O) in Beijing on Tuesday, removing another obstacle to China's accession to the global trade body. Thirteen countries, including the European Union represented as a single bloc, must still sign their individual W-T-O deals with China. W-T-O talks between China and the EU are also now taking place in Beijing. Indian trade officials meet with their Chinese counterparts in Beijing to sign agreements that will help smooth China's path to membership of the World Trade Organization. The two countries, the two most populous in the world, also cemented their bilateral trade relations with a raft of agreements on commerce between the two countries. The Indian commerce minister, Murasoli Maran, was in Beijing at the head of the Indian trade delegation. He signed the agreements on India's behalf, while his Chinese counterpart, Shi Guangsheng, signed for his country. China and India also established a mechanism to settle bilateral trade disputes through arbitration and signed a Memorandum of Understanding for increased cooperation in the field of metallurgy. India and China's combined populations exceed two billion people, making them the largest and most important developing economies in the region. SOUNDBITE: (English) "This is a very significant event. It will promote trade relations between the two countries. I would say it is a step forward in the direction of promoting economic cooperation and trade relations." SUPER CAPTION: Murasoli Maran, Indian Commerce and Industry Minister India's commerce minister called further measures to encourage trade, including the smooth exchange of information between businesses, the development of bilateral trade, labor contracting and mutual investment. One move resulting from the past two days of trade talks is an agreement to send a team of Chinese technicians to India to explore the possibility of establishing a joint venture iron and steel plant. China also vowed to increase its iron ore imports from India.

Interview with P. Hooper - OECD
OECD information exchange and the banking secrecy An interview with Will P. Hooper, ex banker and consultant for Privacy Management Group The year 2015 will be remembered for the introduction of the automatic exchange of information concerning taxes and the loss of one of the most fundamental rights in the history of banking – the end of banking secrecy. In addition to the OECD model agreement between more than 130 countries and EU-FATCA, some other information exchange and transparency initiatives evolved. Moreover, the initiative within the European Union to extend the automatic information exchange relating to taxes, interest rates and assistance directives, the OECD promotes the development of a standardised, bilateral and automatic information exchange on the basis of the intergovernmental agreement of FATCA. We are talking about the upcoming changes which will evolve from that, with the press officer of Privacy Management Group, Will P. Hooper, in the United Arab Emirates. EO.: Mr. Hooper, is the banking secrecy now a relic of the past? W.P.H: Yes and no. Within the European Union and in connection with Switzerland, there is no doubt that the banking secrecy will be gone in a few months. But you can still find global loopholes until the end of the year which cannot or are not supposed to be taken down. EO.: The term “loophole” sounds a little bit dodgy. What do you mean by that? W.P.H: It is not dodgy at all. Everybody who has the right to close a company bank account within the European Union will relocate the accounts to a non-EU country. Everybody who is a beneficial owner of a bank account outside of the European Union will make sure that the account balance will not exceed USD 250,000. According to current implementations, company bank accounts will be excluded of the compulsory registration according to OECD as long as they were opened before the deadline and as long as they do not exceed the required account balance. EO.: And the private investor? W.P.H: I have been in the banking industry for more than 36 years and the development I predict will be as follows: The private investor will probably get the money out of Europe and invest it through a company in order to have his or her assets better invested elsewhere. Private bank accounts will be replaced by business accounts and what I mentioned earlier will apply here again. EO.: And after the 31st December 2015? W.P.H: In case the model agreements will actually come true and the technical requirements are in place, a bank account which was opened before the 31st of December 2015 will not fall under the compulsory registration and reporting requirements. Congratulations to those who will use the upcoming months wisely. EO.: The terms „EU-FATCA“ and „OECD Common Reporting Standard“ can be read and heard everywhere these days. What are they all about? W.P.H: We have to differentiate here, even if the main players behind both terms have the same goals. „EU-FATCA“ means the 2014 agreement of the EU finance ministers. This includes an extended administrative assistance guideline. According to these guidelines, the EU countries are obligated to implement an automatic exchange of information for tax relevant bank accounts. The context is very similar to the Common Reporting Standard of the OECD which was finalised last July. The implementation is supposed to be applied by 2017. Only Austria makes an exception here. The republic of Austria wants to follow in 2018 together with Switzerland. The term “OECD Common Reporting Standard“ means that the incorporation of a non-EU company with a respective bank account is not possibly indefinitely anymore. According to current implementations, that would mean that only non-EU bank accounts which were opened before the 31st of December 2015 do not fall within the compulsory registration. And even those accounts must not exceed an account balance of USD 250,000 on the first of January each year or at any time. EO.: Therefore the banking secrecy does not exist anymore from the first of January 2016 onwards. Will discretion and data privacy be a relic of the past? W.P.H: I wouldn't put it this way. Everybody has the right to choose their residence outside of the EU or to relocate. And in such a case the EU-FATCA becomes meaningless. Tax advantages can be gained and the living standards abroad can be much higher compared to your current country. EO.: Emigrating? This might sound rather challenging for most of our readers.

Making Europe's consumers safer
http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/safety/rapex/ The RAPEX rapid alert system for dangerous consumer products is proving a success throughout Europe. The system is intended to address risks to health and safety through the rapid exchange of information between EU countries. When a non-food product is found to be dangerous, the national authorities notify the commission which can then either ban the product or let it be sold on certain conditions. In April, the EU revealed the results of the 2006 RAPEX report, which highlights a sharp rise in the number of notifications resulting in the withdrawal from the market of many products.

IT AND ITES SECTOR INTRODUCTION The global sourcing market in India continues to grow at a higher pace compared to the IT-BPM industry. India is the leading sourcing destination across the world, accounting for approximately 55 per cent market share of the US$ 185-190 billion global services sourcing business in 2017-18. Indian IT & ITeS companies have set up over 1,000 global delivery center in about 80 countries across the world. More importantly, the industry has led the economic transformation of the country and altered the perception of India in the global economy. India's cost competitiveness in providing IT services, cost savings of 60–70 per cent over source countries, continues to be the mainstay of its Unique Selling Proposition (USP) in the global sourcing market. However, India is also gaining prominence in terms of intellectual capital with several global IT firms setting up their innovation center in India. India has become the digital capabilities hub of the world with around 75 per cent of global digital talent present in the country. MARKET SIZE The internet industry in India is likely to double to reach US$ 250 billion by 2020, growing to 7.5 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP). The number of internet users in India is expected to reach 730 million by 2020, supported by fast adoption of digital technology, according to a report by National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM). Indian IT exports increased to US$ 126 billion in FY18 while domestic revenues (including hardware) advanced to US$ 41 billion. Indian IT and BPM industry is expected to grow to US$ 350 billion by 2025 and BPM is expected to account for US$ 50-55 billion out of the total revenue. Total spending on IT by banking and security firms in India is expected to grow 8.6 per cent year-on-year to US$ 7.8 billion by 2017!!. India’s Personal Computer (PC) shipment advanced 11.4 per cent year-on-year to 9.56 million units in 2017 on the back of rise in the quantum of large projects. Revenue from digital segment is expected to comprise 38 per cent of the forecasted US$ 350 billion industry revenue by 2025. INVESTMENTS/ DEVELOPMENT Indian IT's core competencies and strengths have attracted significant investments from major countries.

US CHINA in Shock as INDIA clears their Problem in
US CHINA in Shock as INDIA clears their Problem in . India-US trade estimated to touch $140 billion in 2017 . Cabinet approves protocol amending double taxation avoidance agreement with China . Trade between India and the US is estimated to have jumped substantially from USD 118 billion in 2016 to USD 140 billion in 2017, according to an advocacy group that aims to promote bilateral trade. In 2016, India was the ninth largest trading partner of the US and one of the major countries with which America has had trade deficit of more than USD30 billion. This is expected to continue in 2017 as well, an issue which has repeatedly been raised by President Donald Trump and his top officials in their interaction with their Indian counterpart. "We estimate that in 2017 India's trade (with the US) has gone up from USD 118 billion (the previous year) to USD140," Mukesh Aghi, president of the US India Strategic and Partnership Forum (USISPF) told PTI in an interview. Official figures of annual bilateral trade are yet to come, but the USISPF estimates are based on its own research and surveys. India, Aghi said, has proactively started working on addressing the issue of trade deficit with India. "India roughly has a thousand jet orders with US companies. That will start bringing trade imbalance in the right direction. India, last year bought USD2 billion worth of energy from the US. India spends roughly USD 80 billion dollars acquiring energy. And I think a lot of that will start moving to the US," he said. "I think next five years, you will see a little more balance in the trade between two countries," Aghi said. India and the US have set a goal of increasing the bilateral trade to USD 500 billion a year. "I think it (bilateral trade) is moving," he said. Overall, the relationship between India and the US is moving in a right direction. NEW DELHI The union cabinet has approved the signing and ratification of protocol amending the double taxation avoidance agreement with China, an official statement said on Wednesday. The cabinet, which met under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, gave its nod to changes including updating the existing provisions for exchange of information to the latest international standards. Further the protocol will incorporate changes required to implement treaty related minimum standards under the Action reports of Base Erosion & Profit shifting (BEPS) Project, in which India had participated on an equal footing. Besides minimum standards, the Protocol will also bring in changes as per BEPS Action reports as agreed upon by two sides, it said. Thanks for watching. Subscribe to our channel. Thanks for watching.

OECD Global Forum on Development 2017 5 April 2017, OECD headquarters, Paris, France www.oecd.org/site/oecdgfd Closing the gap between the actual and the desired level of investments to achieve the SDGs is clearly beyond the reach of governments and public lenders. Only with resolute engagement from the private sector, notably through partnerships with the public sector, can this be addressed. Participants at this year’s OECD Global Forum on Development will take stock of existing initiatives to catalyse the power of the private sector in supporting the Sustainable Development Goals, explore new avenues of partnerships to mobilise the necessary resources and understand how the OECD can help.
What is FATCA-Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act-CRS-Common Reporting Standard-Explained-In Hindi
What is FATCA and CRS this is what I am going to explain you in In Hindi. What is FATCA? The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is a piece of US tax regulation that aims to combat tax evasion by US persons opening accounts offshore. FATCA aims to detect and discourage offshore tax evasion by U.S. citizens or U.S. residents by requiring financial institutions to identify and report accounts held by U.S. persons. Where account holders refuse to be identified, financial institutions are required to report them based on information available. The main aim of FATCA is to restrict US persons to create wealth outside USA like in Mutual Funds, NPS, Fixed Deposits etc. It not only is for US persons but also binds business entities. Government of India has bilateral agreement with Government of United states to implement FATCA. What is CRS? Alike FATCA, CRS stands for Common Reporting Standard(CRS) is a globally accepted standard to automatic exchange of financial information among nations, set forth by OECD(organization for economic cooperation and development, which is in close cooperation among G-20 nations , EU(European union) and other countries.

Get more Tips here! www.destinationtips.com Heads of state, former heads of state, heads of government, former heads of government, relatives and associates of government officials (as well as a fair share of celebrities) have all been exposed for hiding money in offshore accounts. Here is a list of the top 10 Biggest Tax Havens in the World. (Ranking is based on a combination of its secrecy score and scale weighting) #10 United Arab Emirates One of the world’s best known tax havens or secrecy jurisdictions.It has a low-tax environment and a complex array of free trade zones with multiple secrecy facilities and lax enforcement. A large slice of the inbound money comes in the form gold. Secrecy Score: 77% Tax Haven Status: Tiny #9 Bahrain An island of hospitality to banks and businesses and also one of the biggest global centers for Islamic finance. There is no corporate income tax, personal income tax or capital gains tax. Bahrain also has a wide network of tax treaties with a number of developing countries. Secrecy Score: 74% Tax Haven Status: Small #8 Germany Between $2.81 to $3.38 trillion of tax exempt interest-bearing assets held by non-residents as of August 2013. Germany does not sufficiently exchange tax-related information with a multitude of other jurisdictions and despite recent progress with its anti-money laundering framework, major loopholes and many implementation deficits still exist Secrecy Score: 56% Tax Haven Status: Huge but Shifty #7 Lebanon Many members of the population are high-net worth individuals. Beirut’s offshore financial services sector has been growing at an average of nearly 12 percent per year since 2006. Lebanon’s political and military troubles over recent decades have disrupted the offshore financial sector, but it has proved astonishingly resilient. Secrecy Score: 79% Tax Haven Status: Small and Secure #6 Luxembourg The most important private banking and wealth management center in the Eurozone. It has 143 banks holding almost $800 billion in assets, over $300 billion of which are in the secretive private banking sector and is a center of lax financial regulation and is still one of the world’s most important financial centers.

However, the U.S. also provides a multitude of secrecy and tax-free facilities for non U.S. residents It's one of the few places left where advisers are actively promoting accounts that will remain secret from overseas authorities. Secrecy Score: 60% Tax Haven Status: Ironic #2 Hong Kong Hong Kong has the second largest stock exchange in Asia after Tokyo with $2.1 trillion under management in April 2015 and over $350 billion in private banking assets.

Through the Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community (INSPIRE), the European Union has created common standards to facilitate the exchange of information and data between the local, regional, national and European or international levels and thus support integrated policy decision-making at all levels of government. INSPIRE is a set of EU and national legal acts and their coordinated implementation. INSPIRE provides a large number of common data models, covering 34 data themes, to facilitate data interoperability across EU countries. While these address many basic use cases, they often need to be extended to serve national as well as domain specific needs. No problem! The INSPIRE core data models are designed to be extensible.

Focus on Funds: Plans for a New Global Tax Compliance System
(Transcript is below) The February 21, 2014, issue of Focus on Funds explains the new framework from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) for automatic exchange of information (AEOI), and clarifies what it means for funds and their investors. ICI's statement on the OECD's announcement is available here: http://www.iciglobal.org/iciglobal/news/news/ci.14_news_tax_framework.global ___________________________ VIDEO TRANSCRIPT Stephanie Ortbals-Tibbs, Director, ICI Media Relations: Welcome to Focus on Funds, the Investment Company Institute's weekly roundup of industry news, ICI activities, and research findings. The framework for a new global tax compliance system is now on the table. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has announced a framework for collecting customer information from financial institutions, and exchanging that information between governments globally. It's called the automatic exchange of information, or AEOI. Here's what it means for funds and their investors. Keith Lawson, ICI/ICI Global Senior Counsel, Tax Law: The OECD's announced standard for automatic exchange of information generally takes into account the many concerns of funds and their investors. Most importantly, compliance with the standard will be relatively straightforward because it aligns with the existing U.S. Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, also known as FATCA. The next step is to ensure implementation is sensible and cost-effective. There are four keys to effective implementation of the automatic exchange of information. The first is we need detailed guidance. The OECD right now, in conjunction with business, is working on guidance known as commentary. This commentary should be out hopefully by July. Second, it's important that all of the countries adopt these reporting standards consistently. If there are inconsistencies in adoption, we lose many of the benefits of standardization. Third, countries may well need to modify their domestic laws, particularly data privacy laws, to ensure funds can collect, retain, and report the information about their customers. And finally, sufficient time will be needed so that the funds can be ready when they are required to provide this information to their governments, which will exchange it with other governments. Unless these four steps are taken, funds and their investors will face unnecessarily high costs and reporting burdens. Stephanie Ortbals-Tibbs: Lawson adds that ICI and ICI Global worked closely with the OECD on formation of the initial framework, and will remain very engaged in the implementation process, as a voice for funds and investors. That's this week in funds. See you next week.

S'pore strengthens tax framework to combat tax evasion - 14May2013
SINGAPORE: Singapore is strengthening its international tax cooperation framework to combat cross-border tax offences. This follows a review of Singapore's current framework to co-operate with other countries after endorsing the internationally agreed standard for exchange of information for tax purposes (the "Standard") in 2009. Among the key changes, the government will allow the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore to obtain bank and trust information from financial institutions without having to seek a court order. Singapore will extend exchange of information to all tax agreement partners, subject to reciprocity. Singapore will also sign up to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development's (OECD) multilateral treaty on sharing tax details. Together, they will more than double the number of jurisdictions that Singapore will be able to exchange information with from 41 to 83. These new countries include the United States and Brazil. The OECD on Tuesday welcomed Singapore's decision, describing it as a "very significant move" to improve information exchange. Singapore will also conclude an agreement with the United States to help financial institutions in Singapore comply with the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) - a US law which requires all financial institutions outside of the US to pass information about overseas accounts held by American citizens to the US authorities on a regular basis. Singapore will make the necessary legislative amendments to effect the changes before the end of this year. Singapore's latest move comes on the back of recent efforts by governments in Europe and in the US to clamp down on tax evasion as they try to deal with rising levels of public debt. Paul Lau from PricewaterhouseCoopers explained: "Globally, there is a push towards greater transparency, greater information reporting. You see the US introducing FATCA, and the OECD picking up on the various themes, including focusing on tax intermediaries." Singapore's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance Tharman Shanmugaratnam said: "These changes we are now making are a major enhancement, in step with the strengthening of international standards for exchange of information. But new standards can only work if all jurisdictions subscribe to them. Singapore will work with our international partners to achieve just that, and ensure there is no room for regulatory arbitrage." Mr Tharman, who is also Chairman of the Monetary Authority of Singapore, added: "There is no conflict between high standards of financial integrity and keeping our strengths as a centre for managing wealth. Singapore will continue to be a vibrant wealth management centre, with laws and rules that safeguard legitimate funds and reject tainted money." In a joint statement, the Finance Ministry, Monetary Authority of Singapore and the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore reiterated the government's commitment to working with international partners to combat cross-border tax offences. This includes assistance in connection with the recent disclosure that the tax authorities of Australia, UK and US are investigating complex offshore structures that may be involved in wrongdoing. The authorities added that Singapore's current laws already allow for assistance in connection with such wrongdoings, if any. www.channelnewsasia.com/news/business/singapore/s-pore-strengthens-tax-framework-to-comb/674546.html

The Responsibilities of Governments: The Case of Transparency
Human Rights and Tax in an Unequal World September 23, 2016 NYU Law's Center for Human Rights and Global Justice The Responsibilities of Governments: The Case of Transparency Panelists: Miranda Stewart, Australian National University Joshua Blank, NYU School of Law Arthur Cockfield, Queen’s University Faculty of Law Tracy Kaye, Seton Hall Law Alessandro Turina, IBFD This panel focused on the unique role of the State with regard to the regulation of tax transparency, in view of State duties to respect, protect and fulfill human rights. Panelists will reflect on how governments are or should be legislating and enforcing transparency obligations, and the potential unintended consequences of doing so. The principles of transparency and accountability, firmly grounded in international human rights law, underlie demands for greater disclosure of information on tax payments and corporate ownership, within and between countries. Many States have agreed to begin automatic exchange of taxpayer information in 2017–2018 and some have adopted new provisions requiring country-by-country reporting of corporate profits, tax payments, and beneficial ownership. At the same time, privacy concerns regarding the use and abuse of taxpayer data loom large. Corporate actors are increasingly using human rights principles and institutions to vindicate their privacy and property rights against the State’s powers to tax and to demand information regarding taxpayer practices. This session will examine in what ways the perspectives of tax and human rights experts coalesce or collide on issues of transparency and privacy in the realm of taxation, and address the proper role for States in regulating tax practices.

ISLAMABAD: Swiss authorities have agreed to provide information about Pakistani accounts in Swiss banks, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar said in a policy statement in the National Assembly on Wednesday, ARY News reported. Swiss authorities have consented to sign an agreement on our conditions, Dar said in a statement on the floor of the lower house. The two sides will sign the agreement on March 21st.

It will be impossible to keep tax evasion money in these countries after operationalization of this convention, he said. Finance Minister Ishaq Dar in his May 14, 2014, statement had informed the National Assembly that at least $200 billion of Pakistani money was stashed away in Swiss banks. The minister had told the house in a written reply that the government was engaging with Swiss authorities to get to the money, hidden away by various Pakistani nationals. The minister in his detailed response to a question raised by Dr Arif Alvi of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), had quoted statements by a Swiss banker and a former Swiss government minister: “One of the directors of Credit Suisse AG stated on the record that $97 billion worth of Pakistani capital was deposited only in his bank. Similarly, Micheline Calmy-Rey, a former Swiss foreign minister, is reported to have put the amount of Pakistani money hidden in Switzerland at $200 billion — a statement that was never contradicted,” he revealed. The minister had said that he believed the figures were correct.

Launching Balloons into North Korea: Propaganda Over Pyongyang
North and South Korea are, both legally and philosophically, in a state of war. While the guns may be silent, the conflict between the two countries has now become one of propaganda. With the assistance of the Human Rights Foundation, North Korean defectors now in South Korea have been launching hydrogen-filled balloons across the 38th parallel — carrying both money and propaganda. In late 2014, a balloon launch sparked a brief exchange of gunfire between North and South Korean soldiers, and even more recently, Pyongyang has promised that hellfire will rain on South Korea if any copies of the controversial Hollywood comedy The Interview make it across the border. VICE News traveled to Seoul to meet frontline soldiers in this information war — and to attend a clandestine launch of propaganda balloons into the Hermit Kingdom.

Money Transfer Explained
Money transfer services can save you a lot of money when doing international transfers compared to the ATM or the bank. How do they work and are they worth the effort? Recommended money transfer services: **1st choice** CurrencyFair https://www.currencyfair.com/?channel=RGN3H1 [Referral link.

List of supported currencies here: http://www.xe.com/xemoneytransfer/ca/#currencies **EXTRA INFO** Good post comparing various money transfer services: https://www.currencyfair.com/blog/money-transfer-companies-compared/ Excellent website that compares various services including spread and fees for a given trade: https://moneytis.com/ Tips: ** You need a bank account at both ends of the transaction. The receiving account usually doesn't have to be yours, so you can use a (trusted!) friend's account if your are in a pinch. ** Compare your particular trade between services, pricing varies a lot depending on countries and currencies. ** Money transfer services are usually slow. The delay can be from a few hours to a few business days to more than a week in some cases. Plan ahead. ** Always test a new transfer service with a smaller amount first (a few hundred dollars or equivalent) to make sure everything is working as expected. ** Break down very big transfers into smaller chunks. It minimizes risk if anything goes wrong and it avoids getting flagged by government checks (usually around 10000US$, varies by country). It also evens out variations in the exchange rate if you do multiple transfers over a few weeks instead of all on the same day.

Disestablishment of the single market
During the debate on the exchange of information in the field of taxation between the member states taken place in the plenary session of the European Parliament in Brussels, Golden Dawn MEP Lampros Fountoulis took the floor. He highlighted that the idea of single market itself favoured the tax avoidance of big companies because of the different tax rates, while he demanded the disestablishment of single market by leaving out any thought on the cession of tax deductibility to the Union. “For one more time the European Union has failed to meet the requirements of the citizens. Even worse, this report not only will not tackle the tax evasion of big companies, but also it creates logical concerns about the security of personal data and the way in which they can be employed in the future. Firstly, the tax regime of many member states allows the tax avoidance for those who have the means in order to discover and take advantage of the various loopholes in the law. But, the most important thing is the fact that the idea of the single market itself exhorts citizens to tax avoidance, since tax regime is not the same in all European countries. Of course, it is irrational to expect from a company that it will remain in a country paying multiple taxation, while because of the single market there is the ability to transfer its headquarters avoiding in this way the loss of huge amount of money. This is not possible, of course, for small and medium-sized enterprises, which are naturally unable to operate such a practice. But, due to the fact that single taxation would constitute unacceptable cession of national sovereignty according to us, we, therefore, support the reintroduction of national borders regarding the movement of goods or provision of services inside the European Union.”
France: Activists protest tax evasion as ex-minister Cahuzac's fraud trial kicks off
Around 150 activists placed nearly 200 chairs in front of the Palais de Justice in Paris to protest against tax evasion as former French Budget Minister Jerome Cahuzac's tax fraud trial kicked off in the Court of Cassation, Monday. SOT, Guillaume, spokesperson of the collective (French): "It makes 196 chairs because we do not want that only a man is judged (reference to the Cahuzac affair). What we want is the process of tax evasion and to stop the organised system of tax evasion. So we will let the 196 chairs at our friends the police to challenge themselves to justice." SOT, Labrousse, protester (French): "It is a real fight against tax evasion and has not yet been launched. I even heard this morning on the radio that the Cahuzac affair had the merit of opening a regulation change on taxation. This is partly true, there is exchange of information between countries, on demand. But at the same time, people who are in charge of this work, including Bercy, are paid well and have to work effectively. So we have laws, rules, but not the means to apply them. We have to reclaim them. It's a real citizens' robbery!"
