The madness of tax havens

Posted on

The sheer absurdity this comment, made a few moments ago on my blog posted earlier today on common arguments supporting the abuse of low value consignment relief, has to be carefully considered. The commentator said:

I am watching this very closely and I am getting to the tipping point of “if you can’t beat them, join them”. If nothing happens, my business based in Isle of Man will be shipping through Jersey in 6 months time. Absolute logistical nonsense.

So here we have an Isle of Man business planning to ship its products to Jersey for onward supply to the UK simply to abuse UK VAT rules. The madness is beyond imagination.
