Fish­er­man should have copied ac­tors

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

I WAS read­ing about the fish­er­man who got a prison sen­tence for fail­ing to de­clare his in­come to HMRC.

It made me think of the three ac­tors on a BBC sit­com who di­verted their wages through an off­shore tax avoid­ance scheme, hav­ing fees sent back as loans so as not to pay in­come tax — and this is quite le­gal.

Maybe the fish­er­man should have done this as well and he would not be in prison now.

What if ev­ery­one in Bri­tain had the op­por­tu­nity to do this — who would then pay for pub­lic ser­vices?

If this is not il­le­gal then it should be, ev­ery­one should pay their taxes as most of us on PAYE don’t have any choice.

Tax payer.
