Tax Avoidance: the Great Tax Robbery

    CIJ summer school speaker, investigative journalist and former tax-inspector Richard Brooks published a new book, exposing the shocking ways of how the richest individuals and companies deprive the UK state coffers of billions of tax money. The Great Tax Robbery: How Britain became tax haven for fat cats and big businesses shows how despite making millions in profit,  a host of High Street names, including Vodafone, Barclays, Topshop and Boots as well as numerous rich individuals legally pay almost no tax and how HMRC turns a blind eye to billions of illegally unpaid taxes in secret Swiss bank accounts. 

    Here is a review of his book in The Times

    Richard will be teaching at the 2013 summer school.
