Yes it is moral, as is minimising inheritance tax by gifting to charity. To open an ISA to minimise the tax paid on interest is also moral.

What is immoral is allowing rules to apply that only benefit the rich and indirectly penalise the poor e.g offshore practices.

Who would deny Hamilton the 3 million vat he saved on his private ( for business use only , my a**** )private Jet by registering it in the Isle of Man.
If an Island is part of the UK or claims to be then UK tax rules should apply.
Sorry tax dodging residents of the Iom, the channel islands and anywhere else you can think of.

Neither IoM or the channel islands are part of the UK, nor is Gibraltar, nor is Bermuda. That's the issue......

If they had been part of the UK then he could NOT have used them as a tax haven.

But when it suits they claim to be.
If not part of The UK tax regime, then 100% not part of the UK.

He seems to be giving Iran 'evidence' over the imprisoned Brit woman, they are saying that what he says amounts to a confession of her guilt.
