The Pandora Papers investigation was based upon the most expansive leak of tax haven files in history.
The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists obtained more than 11.9 million financial records, containing 2.94 terabytes of confidential information from 14 offshore service providers, enterprises that set up and manage shell companies and trusts in tax havens around the globe.
ICIJ will progressively add client data taken from spreadsheets and other structured files within the leak to the Offshore Leaks Database. But much of the dataset is made up of PDFs, images, emails, audio and video files, and other formats that are largely unstructured but contain valuable details such as company incorporation records, real estate contracts, due-diligence questionnaires, copies of passports, bank statements, tax declarations, and much more.
ICIJ and its partners endeavour to publish these primary source documents alongside investigative stories wherever possible. Documents are reviewed and redacted where appropriate but are rich in information and were critical to ICIJ’s reporting.

ICIJ will not release documents en masse that have not been reviewed, as documents may include personal information on private individuals or involve matters that are not of public concern.
