English term or phrase: leave a paper trail when you’re moving funds to the Cayman Islands
Everyone knows you don’t leave a paper trail when you’re moving funds to the Cayman Islands. That’s the first place people look.

transferring illegally-obtained cash to a foreign country
Explanation:
In this context, it is about money obtained illegally. The only way to "hide" it is to invest it in another country (in this case the Cayman Islands in the Caribbean). "Don't leave a paper trail" means leave no record of the money that was transferred (so the authorities don't nab you or trace the illegal activity back to you).
