  • Carbon markets face fresh uncertainty: Political changes in the UK and US have reversed recent progress towards greater clarity in the world's largest carbon markets, says Graham Cooper.
  • LuxLeaks trio back in court for appeal: The three men at the heart of the LuxLeaks scandal that saw PwC pilloried over the number of tax avoidance schemes its Luxembourg office was involved in, were back in court today appealing against last June’s court verdict.
  • OECD's BEPs measures seriously flawed: The OECD’s proposals for creating a level playing field for emerging economies on tax are seriously flawed and their piecemeal implementation has led to a deepening of the tax gap, according to research from Tax Justice Network.
