The Herald in Scotland on 27th July carried an article saying that the number of new “secrecy firms” boomed in England after an attempted crackdown on their Scottish equivalents, SLP.  New research for The Herald suggests previous attempts to force notorious Scottish limited partnerships or SLP to reveal their owners have merely prompted some of those needing a secrecy vehicle to look elsewhere in the UK.  It says that as a 79% reduction in registrations of SLP took place, there were respective 142% and 22% rises in English and Northern Irish ones.
