Tax haven UK is coming

Posted on

I really did not believe that the government would be daft enough to signal quite so soon that they really do intend to turn the UK into an even bigger tax haven than it already is  - but they're already laying the groundwork. And that's bad news for us in the UK, and for our status in the world, and for the credibility of the tax system as a whole. When, on the one hand, they say they're worried about deficits, and on the other want to promote mechanisms that will assist tax to not be paid it's very hard to take this government seriously.
