from Gold Seek:
As you heard in the European Union conference last weekend, there is a demand from these governments that there be a sharing of banking information. The U.S. is following a similar line as we saw with Google and Apple answering questions on Capitol Hill. While there is a great deal of ‘huffing and puffing’ on the subject of Tax Avoidance in the developed world, the pressure is mainly being turned up on Tax Evaders. This is reasonable because they are breaking the laws of their country.
But the pressure is now spreading to Tax Avoiders, those people and companies that organise their affairs so that they are not liable for tax. This is not reasonable because people who are obeying tax laws and paying taxes due are not breaking the law. If governments want to change that then all they have to do is to change their tax laws to ensure they get taxes paid. In this age of globalism, it is everybody’s right and from a corporate viewpoint, his duty, to ensure his global income resides where it suffers the least tax.
