In September 2015 Private Eye created a map of properties in England and Wales owned by offshore companies.
The map shows all land and property registered in England and Wales in the name of an offshore company between 2005 and July 2014. It uses data released following Freedom of Information requests from Private Eye and expert work by software engineer Anna Powell-Smith.
