Del Canto Chambers advocates for the tax advisors’ leadership on the fight against fraud
Our Managing Partner, León Fernando del Canto, has published an opinion piece in the Spear’s magazine on the consensus necessity among professional international tax advisors and States in the global tax avoidance’s fight.
For Del Canto, the starting point is the application of the universal jurisdiction principles on tax law by defining what is considered international tax avoidance in order to States could effectively prosecute evaders.
Besides, León Fernando del Canto defends the standardization of tax consultors’ professional practices, especially for those who are working in the international context: drafting conduct and ethics codes.
Finally, he challenges the sensationalism some media inform with on the fight against international tax avoidance in cases like the “Panama Papers” by using data which are often irrelevant to the perspective of criminal prosecution.
