Tax agreement with Panama

The Nordic countries have signed yet another information exchange agreement with an off-shore financial centre, this time with Panama.

The latest success for the Nordic campaign to curb international tax evasion is an agreement reached this week between Panama on the one hand and Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands on the other.

Since 2007, a unique Nordic project has resulted in a whole series of agreements with so-called offshore financial centres. The agreement with Panama is the 39th in the series, which provides the Nordic countries with insight into who has been evading tax. The total amount involved runs into billions.

For constitutional reasons the treaties are bilateral and have to be processed by the national parliaments. Once this has been done, it will no longer be possible to move hidden assets and money to Panama. The Nordic countries will also be able ask for information about assets belonging to Nordic companies and private individuals. The agreement was signed on 12 November 2012 at a ceremony in the Panamanian embassy in London.
