The Tax Justice Network (TJN) is an advocacy group consisting of a coalition of researchers and activists with a shared concern about tax avoidance, tax competition and tax havens.

According to its 2009 accounts, The Tax Justice Network International Secretariat Limited is a UK company controlled by "Tax Justice Network Association Sans But Lucratif, a not for profit organisation registered in Belgium."[1]

Publications[edit]

In July 2012, following a study into wealthy individuals with offshore accounts, the Tax Justice Network published claims regarding deposits worth at least $21 trillion (£13 trillion), potentially even $32 trillion, in secretive tax havens. As a result governments suffer a lack of income taxes of up to $280 billion.[2][3][4]
