The morality if tax evasion

Examines the morality of tax avoidance and evasion. How many people avoid paying their fair share of income tax? How do they do it? How many self-employed tradesmen - and "moonlighters" - demand to be paid in cash to escape tax? Should customers co-operate? To what lengths can a big business corporation go to cut tax on its profits? Business Decisions Series. A series which uses a technique totally new to television to explore the legal and ethical problems that regularly beset businesses. In each of the six programmes, a panel of some of the top businessmen in Britain, is assembled.

They are confronted with situations which, although hypothetical, reflect accurately the kind of dilemma which they have probably at some time had to deal with. Keeping the discussion moving at a lively pace is an experienced moderator who tricks, cajoles or browbeats the often reluctant victim into making a commitment to one course of action or another. revealing how and why some of their decisions are made.

Made in 1981 this film reflects the cultural attitudes and language of the time it was made. But the issues raised are timeless. Indeed perhaps more so in 2015!
