This subreddit has been created to provide a platform for sharing news and background details surrounding the Panama Paper and Paradise Paper revelations.


TL;DR: What are the Paradise Papers?

The Paradise Papers are a new leak obtained by the Süddeutsche Zeitung. The data includes a total of 13.4 million documents – comprising around 1.4 terabytes – from two offshore service providers, Appleby and Asiaciti Trust, and from the company registers of 19 tax havens.

The documents show how corporations like Nike, Apple, Uber and Facebook have found ways to reduce their taxes to astoundingly low rates. The Paradise Papers also provide evidence of assets in tax havens held by the British queen, the rock star Bono and Stephen Bronfman, the chief fundraiser for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. They reveal the extent to which political elites exploit this secretive world: More than 120 politicians from almost 50 different countries are involved in one way or the other.

What is the difference between the Paradise Papers and the Panama Papers?

The two troves of documents differ in both source and content. In contrast to the Panama Papers, the present documents don't just contain information pertaining to politicians, athletes and the super-rich, but also to numerous multinational corporations that use the offshore system. Among Appleby's clients are companies like Nike, Apple, Facebook, Walmart, Allianz, Siemens, McDonald's and Yahoo. Because all of the places involved are so-called tax havens, or "tax paradises," the name Paradise Papers was chosen.
