    Europe makes official a blacklist of 17 non-EU it describes as tax havens

    “Tax havens will not disappear from our radars and we will keep the pressure on,” EU vice president Valdis Dombrovskis said

    The European Union has put 17 non-EU countries on a blacklist of those it deems guilty of unfairly offering tax avoidance schemes, prompting protest from Panama's president. EU vice president Valdis Dombrovskis said after a meeting of the bloc's finance ministers that beyond the 17 nations, over 40 more were put on a “grey list” to be monitored until they are fully committed to reforms.

    Spain to question Gibraltar’s exclusion from EU tax havens blacklist

    Spain treasury minister Cristobal Montoro, said Spain has “more than sufficient reason” to view Gibraltar as a tax haven.

    Spain will call on the European Commission to include Gibraltar on the EU blacklist of tax havens published last week, it emerged over the weekend. The list names the 30 top tax havens as identified by EU countries, but Gibraltar is not on it. Only nine of the EU’s 28 members - among them Spain - view the Rock as a harmful jurisdiction for taxation.
