Elton John, Shakira Named in Pandora Papers as U.K. and Australia Call for Review of Leaked Tax Shelter Documents
Pop stars Shakira, Elton John and Ringo Starr, German supermodel Claudia Schiffer, as well as Spanish singer Julio Iglesias are among the celebrities named in the Pandora Papers, a massive leak of private financial documents published by several news organizations over the weekend, which reportedly tie world leaders and the global elite to complex offshore accounting and tax-avoidance schemes.
Tax authorities in Australia and the U.K. have already confirmed they will analyze the trove of secret documents released by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) to see if there is any evidence that wealthy individuals named in the papers broke local tax law.
Alongside the billionaires and world leaders current and former named in the data dump of more than 11.9 million records — including former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, King Abdullah of Jordan and Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis — the names of several celebrities turned up. ICIJ journalists allege that Shakira, Elton John, Ringo Starr and Claudia Schiffer all set up PO Box companies in known tax havens, such as the British Virgin Islands, Panama or the Bahamas, a setup often used to hide money from tax authorities. The news outlets that published the Pandora Papers revelations — a global consortium that includes The Washington Post, British newspaper The Guardian, Germany’s Sueddeutsche Zeitung and El Pais in Spain — do not accuse those names in the documents of having violated any laws.
An attorney for Shakira told the ICIJ that the Colombian singer denies all wrongdoings, saying she had declared her companies in the Bahamas claiming they do not provide tax advantages. Representatives for Schiffer also claim the fashion star pays her taxes in the U.K., where she is based.
Shakira is facing a possible tax fraud case in Spain after a Spanish judge recommended in July that the singer face a trial over allegations she failed to pay €14.5 million ($16.84 million) in tax on income earned between 2012 and 2014. The case centers on allegations that Shakira lived in Spain during the period, although she was registered for tax purposes in the Bahamas. On Monday, Shakira’s lawyers said a Spanish court was likely to rule in favor of the singer, though court officials were not immediately available for comment. – Source
