On 16 February, the Tax Justice Network in the UK published a report which followed a closed roundtable meeting in October of 2020 involving the Tax Justice Network together with other allies and experts from international organisations, country authorities, civil society organisations, journalists, the private sector and academia.  This report was prepared based on the feedback, discussion and presentations shared at the roundtable, with a focus on the secrecy risks (affecting beneficial ownership transparency) created by complex ownership structures.  It offers a list of factors that could create complexity such as a high number of layers, presence of entities from secrecy jurisdictions in the ownership chain, and so on.
