The seemingly impenetrable language of tax, finance and tax havens is a great obstacle to debate, making discussion and policy-making the preserve of specialised elites, with little input from ordinary people. This is bad for society.

This glossary aims to make the terms a little more accessible.

Occasionally, we may have missed important terms, or you may disagree about our definitions. If so, please contact us.
