    It's the start of a new working year, and in the field of taxation it's very much business as usual. In the United States, taxpayers and their advisers are no doubt still busy poring over the details of reams of proposed new tax regulations...

    Israel Gets Creative With New Ways to Combat Tax Evasion

    Aaron Huber

    12 Feb, 2014

    After decades of letting an entrenched grey market flourish and with few resources to pursue tax cheats, Israel is finally getting serious about the problem of tax evasion. The public first got wind of the new efforts on tax compliance when creative public service announcements were broadcast on TV and radio urging everyday citizens to report instances of suspected tax evasion to a special hotline.

  • Nothing but a Talking Shop

    Nothing but a Talking Shop

    Kitty Miv, Editor

    06 Jun, 2013

    For a long time it has seemed that CARICOM, the grouping of Caribbean states including such relatively large territories such as The Bahamas, Haiti and Jamaica as well as minnows like Montserrat, is nothing but a talking shop without the will or even the technical skills to achieve its stated goal of economic and political integration. But there have been some signs recently that it may be getting more serious. This week it signed a TIFA with the US, which will presumably act as a stimulus to some sort of local harmonization of standards, laws and taxes.

  • Systematically Destroying Europe's Competitive Advantage

    Systematically Destroying Europe's Competitive Advantage

    Kitty Miv, Editor

    31 Jan, 2013

    As an ex-conference organizer myself, I can only eat my heart out at the franchise that Klaus Schwab has constructed on a snowy Swiss mountain; but now, as a humble journalist, I have to thank him for his annual newsfest. This year, the best moment may have been David Cameron's carefully calculated challenge to the EU.

More important is that he has been brave enough to throw down the gauntlet to the mad dogs of Brussels, who are systematically destroying Europe' competitive advantage, and need to be stopped. Of course everyone says that he is doing it for selfish political purposes, but it can happen that politics, national advantage and economic sanity may inhabit the same place at the same time; and that's the role that the UK can play in the next five years, if Cameron sticks to his last.

  • Tax haven hydra

    Tax haven hydra

    Freemont Group

    02 Oct, 2012

    Virtually every high-tax nation has one or several symbiotic tax havens that reduce damage of excessive taxation. The US uses the Bahamas and Bermuda, the UK has Ireland, Channel Islands and the isle of Mann, Russians depend on Cyprus and India uses mainly Mauritius. For thirty years the African island nation has had a very attractive tax treaty based on cultural and religious ties with India. Mauritius, with a population of 1.3m, accounted for 42 per cent of India’s foreign direct investment from 2000 to 2011, worth US$55bn according to Delhi’s ministry of commerce.
