The Great Tax Robbery: How Britain Became a Tax Haven for Fat Cats and Big Business

by Richard Brooks
£9.99   paperback  Oneworld Publications (2014)

The Great Tax Robbery: How Britain Became a Tax Haven for Fat Cats and Big Business by Richard Brooks In the first book to uncover the British government’s complicity in tax avoidance, investigative journalist and former tax-inspector Richard Brooks charts how the UK has become a global tax haven that serves the super wealthy, while everyone else picks up the bill. 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
 
From offshore City bonus schemes to the exploitation of developing countries, this ground-breaking exposé unpicks the tangled mess of loopholes that well known multinationals, bankers, and celebrities use to legally circumvent tax – all in collusion with the British government. Shocking and riveting, this is a bold manifesto for a tax system where we all contribute our fair share.
