Legal Director Neil Williams explains to Law 360 why investigations into Cum-Ex are gathering pace



With investigations into Cum-Ex gathering pace across Europe, Rahman Ravelli’s Neil Williams wrote a piece for Law 360 explaining the latest developments.

Most activity relating to Cum-Ex was carried out prior to 2012 but it was not until this year that any individuals were convicted of involvement in it. In that case, at Germany’s Bonn Regional Court, it was ruled that Cum-Ex was the criminal offence of tax evasion rather than legitimate use of a tax loophole.

Investigations are now progressing as a number of countries look to determine who was responsible for a practice that involved claiming tax rebates – a practice that left treasuries millions out of pocket.

Neil’s piece outlined the reasons behind recent developments, the issues involved in the investigations and the arguments that those investigated may put forward in their defence.
