In July 2019, following the launch of the Corporate Tax Haven Index in May 2019, the Tax Justice Network offered the Inter-American Center of Tax Administrations (CIAT) two free, online webinars in English and Spanish. The webinars aim to train tax authorities to use the Corporate Tax Haven Index to evaluate and address their exposure to multinational corporate tax abuse. Over 100 officials from the tax administrations of 16 CIAT member countries from the Americas and Africa participated in the webinars, including Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, and the United States.
Both our Financial Secrecy Index and the Corporate Tax Haven Index, enable tax authorities, among others, to identify the biggest financial risks their country faces based on the secrecy and tax avoidance provisions; as well as to renegotiate or decide with which countries to establish double tax agreements to prevent lower withholding taxes that have an impact on their country’s tax revenues.
