Global Banking News - 10 July 2012
The government of India is to offer an amnesty to account holders in the Swiss unit of HSBC Holdings (LSE: HSBA) for evading taxes.
The government will pardon more than 100 wealthy citizens who are alleged to have evaded taxes. The account holders have been given the option of bringing their cash back from Geneva and paying pending taxes if criminal proceedings are not taken against them.
The list of customers was obtained from the local authorities last year.
