“I wouldn’t want to see jobs go from the UK, but on the other hand if companies can do better business elsewhere then I wouldn’t want to see anyone stopping them doing so. I would prefer them to stay in the country, though.”

LUKE CASSAR | UNIVERSITY OF QUEENSLAND
“There has been a handful of companies moving offshore recently, which is concerning, but most of them are staying here. There are reasons other than taxation to stay in the UK. It affects both business and personnel.”

MICHAEL BOGDEN | WILLIS
“It’s a real concern, yes, but London will always be a financial capital. I think companies thinking of moving for tax reasons might be put off by the human capital that exists in the City, which is hugely important.”
