ATAF Statement on the Panama Papers

7 April 2016

 

The revelations this week on what is known as the Panama Papers has huge implications for tax and the debate on illicit financial flows from the African continent.

The Panama Papers are a leak of 11.5 million files from the database of the world's fourth largest offshore law firm, Mossack Fonseca.  The scale of the Panama leak is unprecedented and provides further evidence of the enormity of the tax lost through tax evasion.  It further demonstrates the great need for African countries to take more action to counter the losses they are suffering due to tax evasion through individuals illegally moving funds out of African countries.
