On 28 March 2022, from 16:45 to 18:45, the FISC Subcommittee will host a public hearing on the ‘exchange of information with jurisdictions appearing prominently in the Pandora papers (such as Crown Dependencies, British overseas territories and some US States)’

The purpose of this second hearing related to the 'Pandora Papers' is to focus on the specific issue of exchange of information with some jurisdictions which appeared prominently in the Pandora Papers. It will provide an opportunity for FISC Members to examine how well the exchange of information in tax matters works with the Crown dependencies, British overseas territories and some US States. The hearing follows up on a first hearing on the Pandora Papers in November 2021, which focussed on tax evasion and tax avoidance.

The following experts have been invited:

  • Ms Maria José Garde, Chair of the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes, OECD,

  • Ms Moran Harari, Lead researcher & interim director of financial secrecy and governance, Tax Justice Network,

  • Mr Ryan Gurule, Policy Director, The Fact Coalition.
