Costa Rica Connection To The ICIJ Offshore Leaks Database

QCOSTARICA – Find out who’s behind almost 320,000 offshore companies and trusts from the Panama Papers and the Offshore Leaks investigations

The ICIJ Offshore Leaks database contains information on the offshore entities that are part of the Panama Papers and the Offshore Leaks investigations. The data covers nearly 40 years up to the end of 2015 and links to people and companies in more than 200 countries and territories.

ICIJ produced the first version of the Offshore Leaks database with the Costa Rican newspaper La Nación.

The real value of the database is that it strips away the secrecy that cloaks companies and trusts incorporated in tax havens and exposes the people behind them.

ICIJ obtained the data through two massive leaks. The majority of the names in this database come from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, whose inner workings were exposed in the Panama Papers investigation published in April 2016 in conjunction with Süddetsche Zeitung and more than 100 other media partners.

Should we assume that everyone named in the database has committed a crime? No, there are legitimate uses for offshore companies and trusts. The datadbase does not intend to suggest or imply that any persons, companies or other entities included in the ICIJ Offshore Leaks Database have broken the law or otherwise acted improperly.

What the ICIJ Offshore Database shows is the relationships and networks among people or companies and offshore entities: like a corporate registry where you can check information about a company and the people who played a role in that entity at a certain point in time.
