Disclosure of assets

George Osborne said the transparency rules on beneficial ownership showed that Britain and other governments were working to shine a spotlight on “those hiding spaces, those dark corners of the global financial system”. Osborne said he hoped that the regulations, which will come into effect in January 2017, would be followed up by other countries.

It has also been reported that finance ministers from other European countries had pushed Britain to extend the new rules to all trusts, rather than just those that “generate tax consequences “and will continue to do so.

It is clear from the above that avenues that allow non-disclosure of assets to a tax authority – whether it be for the super-rich, corporations or individuals – are slowly being closed or their existence and beneficial owners are being disclosed to tax authorities.
