    Avoidance isn't illegal so let's not treat him like a criminal. It is morally wrong but this guy shouldn't be singled out. David Cameron was morally wrong to name and shame jimmy when his buddy Gary Barlow OBE is doing the same thing especially considering that he very recently publicly supported the Tories election campaign.

    Can't you somehow get it from a Jersey seller and avoid the VAT?

    A TAX dodge using Jersey that allegedly shelters £168 million a year from the UK taxman has been exposed in a series on tax avoidance by The Times.

    The Times has used the example of comedian Jimmy Carr – who has performed many times in Jersey – to illustrate how the K2 scheme works by transferring salaries into a Jersey-based trust, which lends investors back the money, tax-free.

    The K2 scheme works because the loans are technically repayable, but the people running it told an undercover reporter ‘no one has ever been in a position where they have had to repay’.

    The Times has revealed the scheme, which is run by tax advisers in the UK, as part of a series on tax avoidance, including a leading article describing the complex British tax system as ‘unfair’ and urging ‘radical action’ to tackle avoidance.

    The head of the finance industry’s promotion body – Jersey Finance chief executive Geoff Cook – said that the articles were part of an ongoing debate about what constituted tax avoidance and what constituted tax evasion.

    And he said that the K2 scheme was devised and administered in the UK, not in Jersey. ‘I do not think these articles necessarily hurt our reputation. I think that we have a reputation for doing things the right way and abiding by the law and abiding by international standards.

    ‘I am not defending the schemes, but the judgment call about whether they are acceptable or not is for the UK.’

    It was a comment about the useless deal details not Jimmy Carr. When I posted the comment I had no clue what on earth the deal was for from either the title or the details. Did you fix it or was it a mod?

    Jimmy Carr was an @r$e before this story broke anyway.
    Hadouken!
    Shame that he's been scapegoated by the press for this more so than everyone else doing it.

    I noticed that Gary Barlow and his fellow backing singers got away pretty scott-free with today's Times exposé about their tax dodging.
    Wouldn't happen to be anything to do with keeping face in light of his recent OBE, would it?!

    Don't know how much the said Mr Carr earns, or how much tax he's avoided, but surely this is a drop in the ocean compared to the 4.5Bn Vodafone alledgedly avoided paying HMRC a cuple of years ago?

    Is that £3.98 ex or inc VAT?

    Not to mention Boots' ongoing behaviour.

    I saw this story on the news earlier and thought Davey boy had his priorities a little mixed there; he's going after Carr et al and leaving Boots to carry on? How much are the CEO's of Boots lining Dave's pockets with then? Maybe Jimmy should start sucking-up to some politicians?

    Doesn't work either way because of the fact that Play is a Jersey seller and the joke just ain't funny.

    However does work well if it is an ape of Carr's "joke" style. I.E punchy but obvious, limited and lame. Nice one.

    I wish people would read between the lines about why Carr has been singled out in this. I find him a smug, unfunny coke head. But he isn't the only highly paid celebrity to have used this loophole.

    So why is he getting all the criticism?

    It is not because he has made jokes at other's greed. It is because there is a lot of other highly unsavoury information has been found out about this guy, predominantly because of the Levenson enquiry but has been kept quiet for years.

    Let's just say his career will be going the same way as Barrymore, John Leslie and Gary Glitter once the truth really emerges.

    Not to mention The times parent company news corp has dodged how many billions.. pot... kettle.. black.

    Should of been avoided by closing loopholes, but i guess if it benefits some, it will be left.. *ahem* cameron, how did your daddy save so much.

    I know I'd avoid tax if I could do it legally.
    anonymouscheapskate
    Cameron singles Jimmy Carr out as being 'immoral' for paying as little tax as he legally can get away with. Isn't that a bit rich from a Tory who cut the 50% tax for all the very rich people? Also Carr can't be the only person in the country using this sort of scheme. Why has the PM picked him out? Is it just revenge because even though he's a high earner and therefore a natural conservative, Carr still has the guts to go on 10 o'clock live and **** off the Tories?
    whatyadoinsucka
    Nothing wrong with tax avoidance my question what are the monkeys doing at hmrc to have failed to close this loophole.. Unfortunately those who can employ top accountants and those who can.t work for hmrc
