A Four Corners exclusive: Inside the tax havens of the rich and powerful.
“You’re talking about the biggest corporations in the world. They hide their money and move their money around the world so that they pay less tax.”
On Monday Four Corners will take you inside the secretive world of tax havens where corporations and the wealthy operate far from public view.
“We’re seeing things that people never thought would see the light of day.”
In an investigation that spans the globe, Four Corners will reveal the lengths some of the world’s most powerful business figures and global corporations are going to, to avoid paying tax.
“In the tax world, the line between law and illegality is always fuzzy.”
As tax authorities in Australia and across the globe try to claw back money from the big multinationals, reporter Marian Wilkinson will show how a web of offshore operators help organise elaborate international tax avoidance schemes.
“I think the public has a right to know what we’re going to reveal.”
The Paradise Papers, reported by Marian Wilkinson and presented by Sarah Ferguson, goes to air on Monday 6th November at 8.30pm. It is replayed on Tuesday 7th November at 1.00pm and Wednesday 8th at 11pm. It can also be seen on ABC NEWS channel on Saturday at 8.10pm AEST, ABC iview and at abc.net.au/4corners.
