  • Senator's husband put $1.7M in offshore tax havens - Canada - CBC News
    Trust Trust data sheet Officer appointments Alert notes Contact info The former Saskatchewan MLA s legal manoeuvrings have sometimes landed him in hot water though He s been disciplined by the Law Society of Saskatchewan five times the most recent case is under appeal and in 2008 a B C court ordered him to pay a former client 273 000 for excessive billing But some of the 68 year old s biggest legal battles have been with the Canada Revenue Agency over his income taxes Since the late 1970s the litigator has repeatedly locked horns with the CRA taking a dozen cases to tax court and a handful as high as the Federal Court of Appeal Some of the disagreements centred on tens of thousands of dollars Merchant booked as business expenses such as costs for his Jaguar or Regina social functions he attended In one case he failed to report 75 592 in income which a judge ruled was grossly negligent if not deliberate None of the court records from those cases mention Merchant s offshore investments Those have only come to light in the leaked documents which show that he created an entity called the Merchant 2000 US Trust in 1998 and then put the 1 7 million into it Normally when someone sets up a trust they give away control of the assets in it But in Merchant s case the leaked records show that at the time he was a beneficiary of his offshore trust as well as its protector a role giving him significant power according to experts in trust law He ceased being a beneficiary in 2002 The files also show the people handling the trust s investments were told Merchant is to retain an active involvement on this account and to please revert directly to Mr Merchant for any problems or queries As well Merchant had trading authorization for the funds in Bermuda according to the records Canadian tax authorities could say In fact it s being controlled from Canada by Mr Merchant and not by the offshore trustee Cockfield commented MAP Tax haven data leak reverberates around globe 36 media outlets probing biggest ever leak of financial data Then it would be a domestic Canadian trust You d have to have full disclosure on all of the income the nature of the trust The beneficiaries would also have to disclose everything Tax court filings obtained by CBC News show that on his income tax return for 1999 the year after he established the trust Merchant didn t tick off the box declaring ownership of more than 100 000 in foreign property Under Senate rules Pana Merchant was required to declare she was a beneficiary of the Merchant 2000 US Trust to the Senate s ethics commissioner but confidentially There is no public access to the information CBC News attempted several times to also contact Pana Merchant Like her husband she did not reply Senate colleague In a 2006 interview with the CBC
