The Netherlands is one of a number of countries which have applied to the German authorities for information about a major tax fraud centred on Liechtenstein, Dow Jones reports on Tuesday.
The case centres on information about wealthy tax dodgers sold by a former worker at the Liechtenstein bank LGT to the German authorities for a reported €4.2m. Reports say between 700 and 1,000 people are on the list.
On Sunday, junior tax minister Jan Kees de Jager warned that people who had tried to evade tax by putting their money in Liechtenstein faced large fines if caught and urged them to come clean.
Finland, Sweden and Norway have also reportedly asked for details.
