Sorry Laura; that’s just wrong. The duty of a company that wants to be a good corporate citizen – or even just law abiding – is to be tax compliant. Tax compliance is seeking to pay the right amount of tax (but no more) in the right place at the right time where right means that the economic substance of the transactions undertaken coincides with the place and form in which they are reported for taxation purposes.
In that case the only duty a company has is to pay the right amount of tax in the right place at the right time. Deciding to do otherwise is always tax avoidance.
Sorry, but you can\’t say this.
\”law abiding\” and \”tax avoidance\”. By definition you can be law abiding and engaging in tax avoidance. Because, by definition, breaking the law to dodge taxes is not tax avoidance, it\’s tax evasion.
Tax avoidance is, again by definition, legal and thus you can do it and be law abiding.
