PODCAST: Can Ukraine be on a tax mend?

Ukraine
In this month’s Taxcast – you can lie and you can steal from us again, but this time we'll know who you are: Ukraine becomes the first country in the world to introduce a public registry of the real owners of companies. The Taxcast speaks to the Director of Ukraine's Anti-Corruption Action Centre about stopping corruption that continues to cost lives.

We also look at the fallout from the latest leaks from the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists on corporate tax avoidance in Luxembourg, or #LuxLeaks; Kenya considers ending corporate tax holidays; and why is the taxpayer-funded European Investment Bank lending money to companies which are heavy users of tax havens? All that and more scandal.

Featuring: The Tax Justice Network's John Christensen and George Turner, Daria Kaleniuk of the Anti-Corruption Action Centre in Ukraine and a brief appearance from the disgraced former Ukrainian President Yanukovych.

Produced and presented by @Naomi_Fowler for the Tax Justice Network.
