i don't think we should worry about probiz Terry. does the fact that they provide this service make them any worse than the companies and individuals(many of them sportsmen) who use this service. both man u, and mclaren mercedes have taken sponsorship from vodafone who take advantage of tax management, which i must stress is not illegal. a fact i found on google, a company which also uses tax management. but at least i was drinking a mug of dowe egberts at the time, and not starbucks. i have to admit also, that i cannot bring myself to bin my kindle loaded with its 70 books, because it was supplied by amazon. neither do i switch the tv off when the news is being read by newsreaders who's contracts have them represented as companies instead of workers, so as to pay less tax. as for politicians who rule our lives, well, the less said the better. it's a minefield isn't it.
it's a major political issue:http://www.telegraph...-avoidance.html
as well as a moral(one of thre buzzwords amongst Rovers Sid and Doris Bonkers brigade).
tax avoidance, or to put the sugar coating on it you hsve done 'tax management', means thaqt wealthy individuals and organisations can deprive the country of the money to build schools, hospitals, and so on. It's becaue it's a 'minefield' that companies like probiz exist.
But in any case, you are either too dim or too dishonest to pick up the actual point, and thst id the self serving selective morality of you and your like.
You are happy to invoke morality when it suits, yet keep quiet when it doesn't
trying to run and develop a sport with more historic and present day issues than any other: in built parochialism, narrow demography, limited international copmpetition(see in built parochialism), narrow geographical spread, a minority sport in its own heartlands, lack of funds etc etc. It's a minefield isn't it
