More than $1.2 billion has been publicly collected by governments around the world from the global tally of fines and back taxes resulting from the Panama Papers investigation’s exposure of the offshore finance industry.

Since June 2018, the United Kingdom alone has added $119 million to bring its total to more than $252 million; Australia has collected another $43 million to eclipse $92 million, and Belgium has added an extra $6.5 million to its government coffers to surpass $18 million.

Investigations are continuing in numerous countries including Austria (where regulators are examining whether two major banks followed procedures to prevent money laundering), Germany, France, and Norway.
