The Great Tax Robbery: How Britain Became a Tax Haven for Fat Cats and Big Business (Paperback)Richard Brooks (author)
- In stock
Investigative journalist and former tax-inspector Richard Brooks charts how the UK has become a global tax haven that serves the super wealthy, all with the Government's help. Discover:
* Why thousands of British state schools and NHS hospitals are owned by shell companies based in offshore tax havens
* How British companies like Vodafone strongly influence tax laws
* Why multinationals like Google and Starbucks can operate almost tax-free in the UK
* How the taxman turns a blind eye to billions in illegally evaded tax in secret Swiss bank accounts
* How footballers like Wayne Rooney use image rights companies to reduce their tax liability
Unpicking the tangled mess of loopholes that well known multinationals, bankers, and celebrities use to circumvent tax, this is a bold manifesto for a system where we all contribute out fair share.
