The late US hotelier and real estate investor Leona Helmsley was once overheard uttering the immortal line that paying taxes was "only for the little people".
Of course, this bluster came back to haunt the billionaire 'Queen of the Mean' when she was jailed for filing incorrect tax returns back in the 1980s.
While Helmsley's crime was relatively unsophisticated, systems for minimising, avoiding or illegally evading tax have evolved significantly since then.
