According to its 2009 reports, 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."
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.
