We all know the mega-rich pay much less tax than the rest of us, but just how do they do it? We learn the tricks of the trade from one of the most wanted whistleblowers in the world.

After years working for a Liechtenstein bank, an employee-turned-whistleblower made off with thousands of incriminating documents. The result was Germany's most dramatic crackdown on tax evasion ever. Heinrich Keiber's insight into the treasure trove of tax evasion nearly brought Liechtenstein to its knees. "When calling, the clients should always use the code words agreed and never state their own names...". It appeared that banks themselves were complicit in keeping money hidden from tax officials, sending mail to clients from outside Liechtenstein. This complicity was denied vehemently - after all, it was not the bank's place to "ask questions like a nanny", the head of the bank stated. Three years on and tax evaders are once again in the headlines - but who has most to fear?
