How money is shifted to tax

40% of multinational profits are shifted to tax havens each year

Researchers from the University of California, Berkeley and the University of Copenhagen estimate that close to 40% of multinational profits (more than $650 billion in 2016) are shifted to tax havens each year. This shifting reduces corporate income tax revenue by nearly $200 billion, or 10% of global corporate tax receipts.
