This video from Britain says about itself:

How the Rich Beat the Taxman (2010)

With more than 20 millionaires in the UK cabinet, reporter Antony Barnett examines the financial affairs of some ministers and others who have helped the government.

[Conservative minister] George Osborne says ‘we’re all in this together’ but are ministers and top Tories paying the same rates of tax as the rest of us? Barnett visits a number of offshore tax havens around the world still under control of Britain, including the Cayman Islands and the British Virgin Islands, to find out more about tax avoidance ploys.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Philips also pays no corporate income tax in the Netherlands at the moment, and AkzoNobel pays hardly any. That’s what company directors said in a round table discussion about tax payments by multinational corporations in parliament.
