As spotted by Timmy, everyone's favourite tax "expert" is at it again.
Good grief.To do the latter denies the fact that tax paid is a distribution to society out of profit for the licence given to an enterprise to operate. It is not a cost.
Tax is not a cost? Barmy.
A licence to operate? We have to have a licence to trade? It is people like Richard "I am very pro-business" Murphy that allow the government to keep on spouting their hideous bullshit.
You listen to me, Murphy, you ignorant statist bastard, people have been trading freely since long before we ever had governments, or states. Trade is one of those natural things that happens because it benefits both parties otherwise they wouldn't do it. Why the fuck should anyone have to pay a licence to trade? And who is this licence paid to?
Tax is not an inherent good, OK? It is merely what we have to pay in order to support the ambitions and second homes of our bastard politicians.
Oh, and might I remind you, again, to sort out your vocabulary?
Tax efficiency is a euphemism for avoidance. As it says, that is avoiding the law.
No. It. Isn't. Tax avoidance, as I have had to remind you before, is entirely legal: it is, as the name suggests, avoiding tax, not the law. Tax evasion means avoiding or breaking the law and is, as such, illegal. You moron.
