Tesco goes to Zurich for tax break

Tesco has attempted to retain a tax
break by moving its CD and DVD operations from Jersey to Zurich.

Pressure from the UK has led to the crackdown on a VAT loophole that allowed
retailers to distribute tax free CDs and DVDs from Jersey, reported the
FT.

Goods worth less £18 can be imported into the EU without incurring a VAT
charge.
