G-7 devising action plan to crack down on tax avoidance

TOKYO -- Group of Seven leaders will announce anti-corruption measures at their May summit in Japan, seeking to shine a light on shell companies as the Panama Papers fuel a growing backlash against tax avoidance.

Masahiko Shibayama, a special adviser to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, will bring up the plans Thursday at the U.K.-hosted Anti-Corruption Summit in London. The measures will be separate from a G-7 statement that will touch on the same issues, including tax avoidance via tax havens.
