Tax li­cens­ing

The Scotsman - - Perspective / Letters To The Editor -

There may be a so­lu­tion to the harm­ful ef­fects of tax avoid­ance on so­ci­eties and na­tional economies. In a sim­i­lar way to the li­cens­ing of banks, busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als that wish to sell goods and ser­vices to peo­ple liv­ing in Bri­tain could be li­censed too.

Traders could be re­quired to ad­here to cer­tain con­di­tions, such as not us­ing tax havens, in or­der to have an an­nual li­cence re­newed; on­line trans­ac­tions be­ing solely via ded­i­cated na­tional ICT servers.
