Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

If the EU is serious (and I don't know if it's the case), the Uk could be listed as tax evasion paradise in no time. This does have consequences for business and finance.
But at the moment, it's all about rhetoric, called in French "effet d'annonce", because nobody knows what and how anything might be applicable in the future, even the reduction of corporate tax is such a rhetoric game as nothing can assure that it will be applied by the next government. It's just a response to the big companies that didn't want the Brexit and have been announcing delocalization or job cuts. In other words:
"the UK could be listed as tax evasion paradise in no time." Which would destroy any chance of a decent trade agreement with the EU; or with any other country that discourages new tax paradises, for example, the US.
