Richard Murphy, the author of The Courageous State is appearing on Panorama (to be broadcast 14th May 2012).


As extracted from Richard's blog:


Panorama on Monday is on tax avoidance.

I am in the programme, and it seems in the pre-programme publicity, which on the BBC web site features a major new tax avoidance story, the documentation for which I saw some time ago:

Major UK-based firms cut secret tax deals with authorities in Luxembourg to avoid millions in corporation tax in Britain, the BBC’s Panorama has found.

The programme obtained confidential tax agreements detailing plans to move profits off-shore to avoid what was a 28% corporate tax rate at the time.

Panorama: The Truth About Tax, BBC One, Monday, 14 May at 20:30 BST and then available in the UK on the BBC iPlayer.
