Another strange thing about PWC’s Total Tax Contribution.
178 countries are considered.
Places as obscure as St Vincent and the Grenadines make it in.
So why don’t Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, Cayman and the British Virgin Islands feature in the survey?
Are they the UK for these purposes?
Or would PWC just rather ignore some of the biggest tax havens in which they operate in their all singing and dancing survey?
No explanation is given. I call this another fundamental flaw. And it has to be deliberate. Because very clearly PWC know a great deal about what goes on in these places.
