EU to discuss blacklist of tax havens after Paradise Papers leaks
European Union finance ministers will on Tuesday discuss setting up a blacklist of worldwide tax havens, EU officials said.
The decision to include the subject in the monthly meeting’s agenda came after the publication over the weekend in several media of the so-called Paradise Papers, a trove of leaked financial documents mostly from law firm Appleby that exposed dealings with tax havens by top public figures.
EU countries had planned for months to reach an agreement on a blacklist for tax havens by the end of this year and the new revelations prompted an earlier discussion on the subject, EU officials said. No final decision is however expected on Tuesday.
