This Funzing Experience:

Multinational companies have been in the news for avoiding UK tax. They use legal loopholes to make profits pop up in low-tax countries, rather than in the countries where they really do business.

These tricks are within the letter of the law. If you challenged the directors, they could say "We obey the law, so we have done nothing wrong". But are there ethical arguments to show that obeying the law is not enough? What if we say that the tax avoiders are damaging society, or are not being virtuous? What if they say that society is not their problem, and that business is about money, not virtue? Join philosopher and former tax adviser Richard Baron, and explore all sides of the argument.

Doors will Open at 7pm, The talk will begin promptly at 7.30pm.
