Taxing Corporate Citizens

If companies would like to be seen as ‘corporate citizens’, then they should expect other citizens (the public) to judge their actions from a moral perspective. They must expect the same horror of corporate tax avoidance as is shown towards MPs fiddling expenses. At the moment the public is largely unaware of the issue – but when informed, they are in no doubt as to the injustice of corporate tax policies.

As I pointed out some time ago in Corporate Truth, many of the solutions are well known – and some have even been espoused by the G20. But what is really lacking is the political will to follow through.
