There is something iffy about the Isle of Man. No doubt it is a place that offers good food and beautiful beaches, tranquillity, motorcycles and museums.
The Isle is a hotspot for tourists and a welcoming residence for the idle rich. Older people, perfectly-legally, retire there to take advantage of the benign tax regime. But when you hear that shareholders in a business have decided to relocate their holdings to this tax haven, you are entitled to wonder - why do they do it?
Perish the thought. Bury your suspicions. Even if businesses do not locate in the middle of the Irish Sea in search of accountability and transparency, they probably have a good reason. Surely it must be for their shareholders, or their customers or their workforce?
