Tax avoidance

Duration: 02:36

Nick shows how the history of tax avoidance is as old as the history of tax. People will always look for ways round the system to avoid paying tax or to take advantage of tax breaks - as the makers of Coronation Street did when the government introduced tax relief to encourage new British filmmakers.
