KPMG and Tax Havens for the Rich : The Untouchables - the fifth estate

734 ratings | 108728 views
A story of money, secrecy and greed: a tax dodge for the wealthy dreamed up by one of the biggest accounting giants in the world KPMG Canada devised what it called an “Offshore Company Structure” for a select group of rich clients: they would claim to give away millions of dollars to a shell company supposedly out of their control and therefore wouldn’t have to pay taxes on it. In the U.S., top KPMG officials were convicted of tax evasion schemes concocted there. But in Canada, a different scheme led to a secret amnesty deal with the Canada Revenue Agency. A federal government inquiry vowing to get to the bottom of it went nowhere What was the accounting firm trying to hide? With revelations from industry insiders, internal KPMG documents and corporate records from the Isle of Man offshore tax haven, we expose the details of the scheme and unveil the names of some of the wealthy clients. A joint investigation by the fifth estate and Radio-Canada’s Enquete program --- Subscribe for more videos from the fifth estate : http://bit.ly/25W8cpn Connect with the fifth estate online : Website : http://bit.ly/1d0FBxq Facebook : http://bit.ly/1UO9B8S Twitter : http://bit.ly/237VM8P Instagram : http://bit.ly/25W8SLs About the fifth estate : For four decades the fifth estate has been Canada's premier investigative documentary program.

This whole episode is a shame on the government of Canada working with criminals - KPMG
Dissident Wolverine (3 months ago)
These are criminals working against the interest of Canada and should be arrested, charged and jailed and not allowed to operate here. But surprisingly the government of Canada is in cahoots with the top leadership here and they seem to be getting away with murder and the tax cheats walking away from their responsibilities as citizens. Justin Trudeau has does not have any BALLS as a prime minister to stand up for Canada but good at his games to manipulate the system and people.,

Why do people try to avoid paying taxes? Maybe because of things like this: http://business.financialpost.com/business/canadas-economic-growth-has-come-at-a-price-its-debt-level-is-now-highest-in-the-developed-world The person earns it and the person should be allowed to keep a majority of it. In socialists countries like Canada the tax rates are simply too high. It beats everyone down to the point where it is artificial equality and lack of motivation to get ahead. Some amount of tax is necessary but it is a fact that governments (i.e. the people who elect them and fail to hold them accountable) waste money and steal it for themselves. When you are cheering for the tax man, you are cheering for the politicians that are stealing countries blind. Wake up. Being mad at people because they had the courage and foresight to try to protect what they earned is simple, petty jealousy and "news" programs like this liberal propaganda show pander to you. The Fifth Estate only ever shows one side of a story. No mention of government waste, the efforts of the individuals to earn the money, or how a tax revolt by the citizens would actually be good for the country. Try to see more than just what you are being spoon fed by the media.

He wanted to commit a tax crime but because he lost his $ before he could commit the crime he wants the fee back? No I do not think so! Canada's rich& wealthy just as bad as 🇺🇸 rich& wealthy; they never want to pay the taxes they know will help their country& fellow citizens yet always want people to financially help them out⁉ The money people paid to get into this tax fraud+ the part of taxes they did not pay to Canada but yet paid to kpmg to help commit this tax fraud is taxes but instead of the money being paid to Canada the money got paid into kpmg; but trust when the rich& wealthy get sick they will utilize the socialize care that you'll have in Canada that they do not want to pay the taxes in order to maintain😥

"Raise the visibility" (25:24-25) of what the company is doing. This is focusing on the tax fraud but how are they manipulating the many audits they provide? On a side note, I am also wondering why Mr. Easter is repeatedly fiddling with his fingers, so much, as he discussed this issue a foot away from the hostess? Interesting. I'll refrain. ;-)!!!

Time to clean house!
The judges, the lawyers, the scammers, the rich dirt bags, and politicians - they are all on the same team, we the poor are the suckers.
This has been going on for years now, I'm so ashamed. I have been audited numerous times by CRA, when I was in high school and college, making only about $15,000/year or less, just struggling to survive. The weirdest thing is, when I did file my taxes I would always end up owing money...... I went years upon years, always owing and paying back. It breaks my heart as an honest tax payer, who pays my part and always have, that I have been paying back for years, and the rich with millions get to pull scams like these and nothing happens to them...... it's because of scams like these why so many people quit their jobs and decide to live on social assistance - for some reason the government only goes after poor people, who cannot afford high powered lawyers, while the rich get to pull as many scams as they want, yet, they go unpunished. Canada is subsidized by the poor for the benefit of the rich. We the poor are the ones who pay the police to harass us- we the poor we pay for the roads, that the rich could speed on and not get ticketed.....We the poor are the back bone of the Canadian economy.

I made $320,000 in 4 years and was taxed approximately $150,000. I lost my job and I recieved $970.00 every 2 weeks for 46 months and then shut off completely. The government should be charged for lack of compassion.

You received 1940.00 a month for almost 5 years and you call your government uncompassionate! That is really crazy! First you would have never gotten that in the 🇺🇸! Second who ever said you are supposed to get back every dime that you pay into the government via taxes? It is not the governments' job to hold onto the taxes that you pay into government until you are ready to go and get that money; governments are actually supposed to use the tax money to pay for the services the population is using at that time in the present and the people employed to provide those services.

I was injured by faulty equipment worn out beyond repair with no investigation and totally screwed over by a corrupt WCB system with WCB doctors medical opinions contradicting my specialists when they had no training of any kind on how to treat my issues and never seen any of my medical specialist's reports. Screwed for life with no pension or wageloss and no retraining. To top that off WCB invests billions into Canadian companies every year, take from small business and invest in the large businesses that were billed earlier in the year for injury costs, now is that not a conflict of information? Our leaders are in politics for their own benefit as when they leave office they will be paid dearly to join the boards of huge companies they represented while in office. GREED

Can you imagine that? The tax-dodgers were offered no penalties and complete amnesty if they came forward, no charges! What?! They sure were lucky they were dealing with our lightweights and not the heavies down in the USA.

The british government does not. All electricity sold in Britain is sold by foreign companies. 100%. Brad Wall put in government cuts when oil prices dropped. Cut backs in tough times... & Saskatchewan's economy is doing much worse than in Alberta. Alberta has invested & raised spending in tough times. Brad Wall is resigning. Looks like his "Free Market" , " Small government" thinking isn't so wise after all.

The world is bonkers.
Indy Indie (1 month ago)
Some of them do it because they understand that governments don't actually need tax income to pay for the things the nation needs, they can pay for them out of thin air just like the banks make loans out of thin air (and if you think banks make loans out of the money people have deposited/invested there you need to educate yourself). Others don't understand that of course and just avoid taxes because they are mean spirited and expect the rest of their countrymen to pick up the tab for them. But in reality ... taxes are an instrument governments use to control the economy, not a means of income from which they pay the bills, even though they sell it to the public that way.

It may surprise you to know that not everyone who invents something or makes a company does it for the sole purpose of getting rich. Many inventions arrive because someone had a problem and finds a solution that they believe others can benefit from. Some companies are formed because it is an efficient way of doing business with friends. Of course they do intend to make money out of the company but they don't necessarily plan to get rich.

RCMP investigating crimes by members- Robert W Knob Paulson RCMP head commissioner openly bragged in public about a young RCMP officer who caught Knob speeding and was then cajoled into acting like the greatest majority of them by having no spine and letting his boss of the hook. Knob could not even take responsibility for a speeding ticket- how do you expect an organization with a head like this actually undertake any meaningful investigation. Second you will find the 'cost of doing business' mentality among white collars who know that there will be mitigating and exonerating precedents which will shelter them from any meaningful prosecution and the corporation will pay 1-10% of the total profit as a 'tax' and will be able to keep the rest and go home at night. http://www.cbc.ca/news/rcmp-commissioner-tells-strange-speeding-ticket-story-1.3515552
