Someone mentioned on twitter that Cameron senior is involved too. This could get interesting.

Why does the Kind of Saudi Arabia even need to store his money in tax havens when he is the absolute ruler?

I'm not sure how childhood friends of Putin is very relevant. I wouldn't want to take responsibility for anything my old classmates get up to. :lol:

Interesting stuff though and I would imagine there is more to come. Not exactly shocking, we all know the rich and powerful do this stuff, but potentially very embarrassing for some powerful people.

Is this supposed to be new information that the Super rich use off shore accounts?

Whilst the news that the mind bogglingly rich (and even some who aren't anywhere near as well off) do this kind of thing isn't new, we've never had a leak of this size before, nor such specific details on how they go about it.

Serious question, what are the legitimate reasons for having such an account?

The article repeatedly states it's not illegal, but I've never heard an explanation for what the legit reasons for having these accounts are.

I think the biggest incentive is to basically pay less tax by getting organisations like this Panamanian outfit to exploit tax loopholes.

The only reason is to lower your tax bill. There is no legit reason it's just possible because of International tax law. Few world leaders want to change the laws because they all hide money in the system or are given large amounts of money by people who are.

it's so when he's paid in the Caymans, he doesn't have to then convert the money into GBP - i resent the implication that there's no legitimate reason you'd have a bank account outside your official country of residence.

in this example - why lose money transferring between GBP & dollars if you can just use a different account?
