Despite the government's and HMRC's anti offshore rhetoric, HMRC is more than prepared to use companies that are offshore.
In a more than ironic twist, a multimillion-pound HMRC publicity campaign to stamp out tax evasion and avoidance used an advertising agency ultimately controlled in an offshore haven.
The Times reports that HMRC spent more than £6 million on the campaigns, including £300,000 specifically on offshore evasion.
Among the agencies used was TNS, a research agency, whose ultimate parent company and controlling party is WPP, the world’s biggest advertising company which is incorporated in Jersey.
As ever with the government and its organs, it's a case of do as we say not do as we do!
Tax does have to be taxing.
