Corporate tax avoidance and evasion should be seen as an ethical issue by investors. That's the view of Christian Aid in a new report – Poverty Over – on the issue of eradicating poverty "Along with traditional concerns such as involvement in tobacco, weapons and environmental issues, a company should also be assessed on its tax practices," says Dr David McNair, who advises Christian Aid on economic justice.
