Re: Companies will take the easy & safe choices

Unfortunately no government will ever chase the large corporations for tax for several reasons:

1) Those big multi-national can afford the cream from bean-counter school, whereas the tax authority has to put up with the dregs. Those top achieving bean-counters will always out-flank the government bean-counters when it comes to legally avoiding tax.

2) Big multi-nationals pay an army of lobbyists to ensure no MP/Senator/Congressman ever votes to change the tax laws.

3) Big multi-nationals pay the costs of political party election campaigns, no political party is going to bite the hand that feeds it.
