Wealthy Latin Americans are using tax free New Zealand shelf companies and trust to channel funds around the world, according to a report based on the leaks of the Panama Papers. Mossack Fonseca ramped up its interest in using New Zealand by actively promoting it as a good place to do business due to its tax free status, high levels of confidentiality and legal security.

The New Zealand government said last month it would begin a review of its foreign trust laws after the Panama Papers highlighted vulnerabilities in its legal framework that made it a possible link in international tax avoidance structures because its foreign trusts are not subject to tax.
