The International Federation of Accountants® (IFAC®) has once again released the results of its global annual survey of accountants from small- and medium-sized practices (SMPs), only this time around, there were even more respondents. Over 6,700 from some 169 countries responded, 32% more than last year, making this perhaps the largest such survey of accountants working in practice. The number of respondents to the survey is a clear signal that SMPs are acutely aware of the significant role they play in business and society; and the results signal that the profession needs to be alert to the many opportunities and threats they face right now and in the future.

Some of the questions any citizen would ask on seeing the recent press uproar surrounding the so-called “Panama papers" are: What benefit does having a company in Panama involve? What is a tax haven? Is Panama a tax haven?
A tax haven is a territory with low or zero taxation, and which also implements the preservation of banking secrecy which does not allow the beneficial clients of banks accounts and companies to be identified, facilitating money laundering.
