    Blair's tax arrangement have been known about for decades.

    The tax authorities are strangely completely uninterested in any of these "arrangements"

      A contractor forum is hardly the place to take the moral high ground on tax.

        Um, Please provide examples - as via a limited company I pay all the tax I'm expected to pay.

        In fact the only benefit we get is to control when money is paid from our limited company into our own personal bank account.

          There are plenty of moral grey areas when it comes to working through a limited company.

          If you are a one man band contractor is it morally acceptable to pay your partner a salary (when you know they effectively do F-all so) you can take advantage of their tax free allowance?

          I don't believe it is but plenty would disagree.

              Nope, I was asking a poster to elaborate on their point which they have done.

                    He's working perfectly legally now (as far as we know). You can be entirely dodgy while remaining within the law, in fact that's rather the point of this thread.

                      There is a certain irony of contractors, who refuse to take inside IR35 roles, debating the morals of legal tax avoidance used by others. Contractors who presumably in the main manage their 'companies' to maximise their tax efficiency, including adding spouses to be shareholders etc.
