those who criticized his 2006 proposal insist it wasn’t a good plan then and wouldn’t have produced any better a result. Sunnis and Kurds.” Jonathan Kolber faxed a copy of the email to his lawyer in Israel and marked it “CONFIDENTIAL!” Kolber’s and Bronfman’s lawyers said the loans received by the Kolber Trust “were at arm’s length” and that “non-interest bearing loans by a US person do not violate US law Rather in certain circumstances there is a deemed interest concept” Deemed interest also known as imputed interest is interest that is treated for tax purposes as if it has been paid even if it hasn’t “With respect to the emails from Mr Chazan no invoices were sent and nothing was paid” the lawyers said “One less formal link” The documents also show that Kolber’s representatives were concerned about leaving a paper trail of connections between the trust and its operations in Canada The Canada Revenue Agency says that a company’s or trust’s true location — regardless where it is incorporated — is where its “mind and management” are based If Canada’s tax authorities find that an offshore trust was in fact run from Canada it can be liable for taxes dating back to its founding A 2006 internal memo in Ansbacher’s files about a recent conversation its lawyers had had with Chazan noted a $81750 invoice for his services might tie the trust’s management to Canada Chazan’s work “should be treated as personal expenses and not expenses of the trusts” wrote an accountant at Ansbacher “This results in one less formal link between the trusts and entities outside Cayman (in the case of the Kolber Trust)” Ansbacher later accounted for the $81500 paid to Chazan as a “loan repayment” to Jonathan Kolber In an interview with the CBC several weeks ago Jonathan Kolber was asked who had run the Kolber Trust Kolber responded that Chazan “was the adviser He’s the guy who made the decisions” Chazan is based in Montreal In response to ICIJ’s questions more recently however the Kolber and Bronfman lawyers said: “The Trustee who manages and administers the Trusts and makes all investment and other decisions has always been Cayman Islands residents or trust companies who are proficient and experienced in the management and administration of trusts” adding that “Mr Chazan’s services were rendered principally in the Cayman Islands He was certainly never the directing mind of the Trust” “Mr Chazan issued invoices to Jonathan Kolber rather than the Kolber Trust as he was engaged by Jonathan Kolber not the Kolber Trust to confirm that all financial transactions of the Kolber Trust had been properly recorded” the lawyers added “The Trustee had its own accounting department…Even in the event that Mr Chazan would have rendered accounting services to the Trust and have rendered such services in Canada neither of which was the case the central management and control of the Trust would still not have been in Canada” In an interview Chazan declined to go into detail about the matter saying he wasn’t authorized to discuss it In 2007 the Kolber Trust had another issue Lynne Kolber Halliday Jonathan’s sister was also a beneficiary but because she was a US citizen her trust distributions triggered American taxes “Removing the US beneficiaries from the trust was the best way all round of dealing with the estate planning of the parties involved” Appleby wrote Halliday’s name was then taken off the trust Appleby later created a second trust for the family to take care of “tax questions that arise or may arise in” the Kolber Trust Halliday “would be taken care of in other ways than through the trust” Appleby wrote adding that “Jonathan will arrange to make gifts to her instead of the trust making the present distributions to her” “This looks like an attempt to circumvent what would ordinarily be her income tax liability on direct distributions from the trust” said Grayson McCouch a trust law professor at the University of Florida “Jonathan Kolber was (and remains) a successful Israeli businessman and wished to assist his sister” the Kolber and Bronfman lawyers said “Personal gifts are a customary mode of financial assistance The receipt of gifts is non-taxable in the United States Jonathan Kolber made gifts to his sister who is an artist and a writer” In a later letter the lawyers said that after 2006 “no gifts were made by Jonathan Kolber to Lynne Kolber Halliday and no distributions were made to her from the Kolber Trust” By 2014 Appleby documents show a change in tactics by the Kolber trusts “We are having serious discussions about the future of the Trusts in light of recent tax changes in Israel” Jonathan Kolber wrote to Chazan Kolber’s attorneys proposed a settlement with the Israel Tax Authority the next year An agreement was reached said Jonathan Kolber in the interview with the CBC The amount of the settlement could not be learned Stephen Bronfman and Leo Kolber declined to comment Lynne Halliday did not respond to requests for comment A lawyer for Jonathan Kolber and Stephen Bronfman said in a statement that the Kolber trusts were not “liable to Canadian taxation” and that they “were always in full conformity with all applicable laws and requirements” He added that when Kolber moved to Israel in 1991 “new residents migrating to Israel were recommended to establish trusts to hold assets due to Middle East volatility and political economic and other uncertainties” Trudeau on offshore Since Trudeau became prime minister in 2015 his populist campaign for tax fairness has had its ups and downs Days after ICIJ and partners published the Panama Papers project last year’s investigation of the global offshore financial system Trudeau made a point of noting that his budget had added more than $310 million in funding for the Canada Revenue Agency to bolster Canada’s tax-avoidance fight “What we’ve seen with the release of the Panama Papers is that there are certain very wealthy individuals who’ve managed to find workarounds that avoid them having to pay their fair share of taxes” he told reporters Two months later a Liberal-led committee in Parliament scrapped an unrelated probe into what the Canada Revenue Agency called an offshore tax “sham” by the accounting giant KPMG that helped wealthy Canadians avoid taxes by using shell companies on the Isle of Man KPMG lawyers had argued that the company’s witnesses shouldn’t be made to testify in Parliament because the matter was the subject of an ongoing court proceeding and the committee agreed That same month Trudeau appointed a KPMG executive to be his party’s treasurer prompting conflict-of-interest allegations from an opposition leader and an ethics watchdog The case is pending A cocktail party At a black-tie gathering in Germany this year Trudeau addressed the global backlash against the rich “It’s time to pay a living wage To pay

$1500-a-ticket fundraiser for Trudeau in Westmount an English-speaking suburb of Montreal that is one of the wealthiest enclaves in Canada A Liberal fundraiser lured potential donors to the cocktail party by emailing them about the opportunity to “form relationships and open dialogues with our government” Derided later by the press as a “cash-for-access” party it was held at the home of Leo
