In today's market there are many ways to "hide" finances. Decisions to make finances and other assets "secret" are not always made with the original intention of non-disclosure in the case of divorce; generally these decisions have been originally made to hide money from the eyes of tax departments.
There are various ways to divert finances into more tax efficient areas including offshore banking and property. Often these actions taken to reduce tax liability are quite legal providing they have been set up correctly and that any disclosure has been legally executed. It is however illegal to hide these assets without disclosure when it is required, and also not to disclose these assets during divorce proceedings when asked to do so. Even most assets that do not need to be disclosed to UK tax officials should be declared during a divorce case.
