Media Advisory: Report on G20 progress on Beneficial Ownership Transparency published 19 April

Issued by Transparency International Secretariat



Transparency International will release a new report on Thursday 19 April analysing the progress G20 governments have made to end the corporate secrecy that allows the corrupt to hide their identity and shift money across international borders.

It is now two years since the Panama Papers revealed widespread use of anonymous shell companies to facilitate corruption and financial crime. In 2014, governments in the world’s biggest economies committed to the G20 High-Level Principles on Beneficial Ownership Transparency, pledging to reform the legal structures that allows anonymous companies, trusts and other legal entities to transfer and hide money. This report reviews their progress.
