Swiss Bank Wegelin Pleads Guilty to Conspiracy to Evade TaxesOffshore Updates
Posted in on January 4, 2013
Switzerland’s oldest bank, Wegelin & Co., has plead guilty to conspiracy charges in assisting U.S. taxpayers to commit tax evasion through undisclosed offshore accounts. Wegelin will pay approximately $74 million in fines and restitution fees. The Bank will also close its doors permanently, ending two and a half centuries of private banking business.
One major concern for U.S. taxpayers with undisclosed offshore accounts remains open: whether the Bank has already or will later turn over the names of its U.S. clients to U.S. authorities.
