Kempe On EU Removing Island From Tax List

May 17, 2019

“Bermuda has consistently demonstrated its commitment to combating money laundering and terrorist financing, therefore it was regrettable that a ‘minor technical omission’ led to a major fail,” Shadow Finance Minister Nick Kempe said.

Senator Kempe said, “In addition to the potential reputational damage and inhibition of the influx of new business to the country, remaining on the EU blacklist could have seriously hampered economic relations with our global partners.

“On March 14, the Premier assured us that the ‘minor technical omission’ relating to third party IP was the only item separating Bermuda from being otherwise deemed a compliant jurisdiction.

“However, despite being removed from the blacklist we will remain on a grey list for issues relating to collective investment funds.

“So the real question once the collective investment fund issue is resolved, will the EU return us to the white list? While we remain hopeful, only time will tell.”
