ICIJ has added a country search feature to the Offshore Leaks Database, allowing more precise geographical searches of more than 100,000 offshore companies listed in the database.

The online database represents a small part of a cache of 2.5 million leaked offshore files that ICIJ analyzed with a team of 112 reporters in 58 countries for more than 15 months. Until now it was difficult to get comprehensive country-by-country results when searching the online application. The new filter helps users do more efficient targeted searches in a particular geographical location.
A dropdown box on the main search page now offers the choice to search for text across the entire database, to filter by country or to combine a company/name text search with the filter. The results screen displays separate lists for Officers/Master Clients (where individual names will appear), for Offshore Entities (companies, trusts and other entities) and for listed addresses in that country. Click on a result to open an interactive diagram of an offshore entity, named person or address. Don’t forget that you can click on a dot in the diagram to expand the results to additional connected entities. And click on “Undo” in the lower right hand corner of the screen to go back to the previous diagram.
