The Tax Justice Network Podcast, March 2015
In the March 2015 Taxcast: Democracy for sale – how our politics rely heavily on tax haven-friendly donors. Also, we ask: why is HSBC shutting down offshore accounts in Jersey? Are we in the final few years of the corporate income tax? Is Australia’s exempting of big companies from new transparency rules a joke? Plus more scandal and analysis that you won’t find anywhere else.
