for the same reason I would evade them if I could. when you earn money, it’s natural to want to avoid giving HALF of it to the government. if you’re not breaking any laws, it’s a pretty obvious choice.
you can play the morality card if you like, but arctic monkeys have done more for charity than whatever tiny fraction of their “avoided” tax dollars would’ve ever gone to, say, the NHS
let me qualify this with one statement though:
avoiding taxes is wrong, and anyone found to have utilized a loophole (read: not a legitimate or legal method) to do so should be compelled to pay that money back.
just don’t go calling arctic monkeys criminals. it’s pretty ignorant to think this is something they cooked up out of the own devious minds, when the reality is it would’ve been a decision sold to them by a financial advisor
