Tax evasion flourishing with help from UK firms

A flourishing industry which helps people evade UK tax has been uncovered following an investigation by the BBC's Panorama programme.

One company formation firm said the odds of getting caught by the UK tax authorities are roughly equivalent to winning the lottery.

The programme secretly filmed corporate service providers offering services that would break the law.

Darragh MacIntyre reports.

Panorama will be broadcast on BBC One at 20:30 GMT on Monday 26 November
