Credit Suisse: Offshore Bankers Indicted
Posted in Offshore Account Update, UBS / HSBC on February 16, 2011 | Share
Four Credit Suisse International Bankers have recently been indicted on charges of illegal cross-border banking. The purpose was to assist U.S. taxpayers in evading taxes through undisclosed offshore accounts. These illegal practices have been perpetuated by many Swiss banks since the 1950s. Multiple Swiss banks, as well as Asian banking giant, HSBC, have been suspected of soliciting U.S. taxpayers and providing them with illegal tax advice resulting in a failure to adhere to reporting requirements.
Undisclosed account holders should come forward before the government brings either civil audits or criminal charges against them which can result in significant financial penalties and the possibility of incarceration. Immediate action and experienced tax law representation is needed to voluntarily disclose your account in order to avoid criminal prosecution
