France and Germany reignite tax haven debate

Proposals for a new crackdown on offshore tax havens have been raised by France and Germany

Banks that use tax havens should be obliged to set aside higher capital to
leverage risk on the financial system, according to the French and German
governments.

The banks would also supply regulators with information relating to
transactions made within these jurisdictions, according to
ft.com

The G20 summit on 2 April is being used by the French and Germans as a
platform to generate support around these proposals.
