    Bermuda-based Appleby, which has offices in a number of British overseas territories, said some of its data had been “compromised” in the 2016 cyber incident.
    We're really good at tax avoidance for the super rich aren't we...

    According to Appleby's website, its experts advise global public and private companies, financial institutions, and “high net worth” individuals.

    “The UK is a tax haven,” he said, citing non-dom laws that allow foreign nationals to live in Britain without paying tax on overseas income.

    Of course, UK citizens should be required to pay tax on income globally. Like the USA.
