It is my understanding that people who formed companies for the sole purpose of billing legit companies in the US are toast.So the guy who billed his own company using a dummy corp UBS sold them should be puking.The accounts in people's names with no billing are fine.

this Saturday,August 1,2009 in the Houston Chronicle, it was announced that the Swiss diplomats met with State department and they reached an agreement on the 52,000 names of UBS suspected of evading taxes on several billions of dollars. some names will probably be disclosed ,but not all. full details will be made in written format in the next few weeks.

It is my understanding that Switzerland escaped a more brutal fate, for reason unknown, for which they are not even grateful or apologetic....

My understanding is that :

- Relationship managers for UBS should be wise not to travel to the USA for awhile.. The agreement saves the butt of UBS not of employees that were engaged in "criminal" cross border banking cum tax evasion activities;

- We can expect a lot of civil cases against UBS if they give names of clients they help evade taxes by providing the tools (offshore cos, trust..) that makes it fraudulent...

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
