Ok. I know it’s not really Mk1 but in the day we enjoyed social competition in our Minis. Why is everyone going for the celebrities tax “avoidance”
Comedians in Ireland, Politicians, Sports stars etc. Hang on they are experts in their field AND advised by “specialist consultants” (accountants, lawyers & bankers). Why is the media not going for the consultants?
Grrrhhh!

The main point of it all seems to be to promote Panarama! Bored of the news already!

The irony is that some of the journos reporting on it are paid by newspapers which are owned by tax dodging / avoiding types!

Haha true and no ones getting upset about classic car investors who do it to avoid capital gains tax!!

Mind you, buy and sell too many and you get classed as a trader and kerching here comes the tax man!

Won't affect me, it's all too stressfull to be worth it!!

I think you've had your share of stress restoring 'SCV' mate...! ;)

I couldn't give a monkey's how folk spend / dispose of their own money, unless they're the sort to preach to the rest of us how to spend ours from their so called moral high ground ;)

Which is why certain dodgy Mini dealers won't put their names on the logbooks. Ermm... I mean enthusiasts!! ;) ;)

The current tax investigation is an indication that for the super rich enough is just never enough. Apparently Lewis Hamilton kept his £15M private jet on the Isle of Man (along with plenty of others') cos he liked the views. ?? :lol: Saved him over £3M in Vat either way!!

The Monaco tax dodge has been up and running for years in F1 and rarely gets mentioned.

I think for the most part, despite all the hype, none of the people & organisations have done nothing illegal. This is the way the 'system' has been set up by law makers and so these people are working within these laws.

I think morally though, there may well be a different argument or view point.

While not enshrined in law, I feel that every company has an obligation to also be a good corporate citizen too. It raises the bar and sets certain standards.
