Readers can now find information about more than 37,000 tax haven clients from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan in the ICIJ Offshore Leaks Database.

ICIJ’s latest “China Leaks” stories this week revealed the offshore holdings of dozens of powerful Chinese financial and political players.

Today we’re going a step further – unveiling more than 37,000 names of offshore clients from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan connected to companies and trusts in 10 tax havens.

Ordinarily, this information is secret or extremely hard to access – even for law-enforcement officials. 

But now citizens, scholars, investigators and others will be able to quickly search for names and connections among people and offshore entities linked to the Greater China region. You can learn how to best explore these connections by watching this video tutorial.

Or you can go straight to the Offshore Leaks Database  and start doing name and keyword searches.

The database launched in June, but the details from Greater China were withheld while reporting was ongoing. Now available in English and Chinese, this interactive application is likely the biggest release of data to date showing how Chinese use the offshore world.
