Introduction

Outrage in the press can cause confusion about the process of tax planning. The nuanced relationship between the spirit and the letter of the law, and wider issues such as the conflict between disparate national tax systems and competitive international trade are therefore often missed. This report gives detailed examples of tax planning involving both multinationals and private individuals.

Scope of this research
This report analyses taxation in the context of international trade, international law and international business.
A review is made of multinational tax planning arrangements, providing an explanation of the major issues of Base Erosion and Profit Shifting.
Specific examples of corporate and individual tax planning arrangements are given, from a UK perspective.
An analysis of the spirit and the letter of the law is included to provide further context in relation to tax planning arrangements.

Research and analysis highlights

International tax treaties have not kept pace with developments in national tax laws. An unintended consequence of the free movement of capital and labor, giving rise to multinational corporations, has been the ability to take advantage of this lack of coherence in national legal systems.

Ugland House, a single building in the Cayman Islands, is the registered office for nearly 19,000 corporations. This type of concentration is likely to change once the OECD makes its final recommendations about changes to international tax law.

Tax planning sits on a complex continuum running from the simple application of commonly known reliefs such as the creation of a tax free savings account, all the way to the creation of multiple entities across numerous borders to carry out a particular transaction.
