FACT Coalition member Oxfam America released new statistics detailing support by investors with over $10 trillion in assets under management for public country-by-country reporting of tax and operational data for large multinationals.
In comments submitted April 28, FACT welcomed the application of strong reporting requirements largely in line with – and in some cases improving upon – international best practices for a wide variety of multinational enterprises, and offered recommendations to ensure the ultimate efficacy of Australia’s proposed public country-by-country reporting regime
FACT Policy Director Ryan Gurule addressed the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Investor Advisory Committee today as part of a panel on emerging investor expectations regarding tax transparency.
Today, the United States was ranked the most secretive financial jurisdiction in the world, according to the 2022 Financial Secrecy Index (FSI).
“The FACT Coalition warmly welcomes this proposed rule, and we are glad to see Treasury’s FinCEN implementing the plain language of this landmark beneficial ownership disclosure law,” said Ian Gary, Executive Director of the FACT Coalition. “These rules, along with the earlier releases this week of the White House’s Strategy on Countering Corruption and the notice of proposed rulemaking from FinCEN aimed at tackling systemic money laundering vulnerabilities in the U.S. real estate sector are a clear demonstration of an emerging American commitment to tackling global corruption, which corrodes democratic governance both at home and abroad.”
