Luxleaks: the hunter becomes the hunted

Deutsche Bank, Pepsi, Burberry, Procter & Gamble, Heinz, JP Morgan, FedEx and IKEA were among the companies to take advantage of the tax avoidance schemes (private tax rulings known as comfort letters), which involved hundreds of billions of dollars being funneled through Luxembourg. 

The US-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) said it had reviewed nearly 28,000 pages of leaked documents.  You can explore them here. The Luxembourg authorities have denied to have signed any sweetheart deals with corporations.
