    Only the guilty or some evader would be either irritated by this or disappointed. The law isn't there to suit your whim, when you want it applied, or when you feel its unjust and want to get away with whatever.
    Or work in Brunei lah..no Income Tax.

    Good point... we must factor in taxes whenever we earn as that's an obligation. There is nothing wrong trying to pay the least through legal deductions or even through corporate arrangements but we must still pay once it is calculated.

    To avoid embarrassing situations at the airport, you may check if you are being barred from leaving the country here :

    Ours is nothing compared to UK taxes.. especially death duties.. a substantial portion goes back to the coffers after your demise. But then a better quality of life in the UK while you're living. Here, you rough it our on your own wit.
    I don't want to mention about how your 1gahmen spend or squander tax payer's money.. all I know we get back little, or crumbs.

    I get crumbs... I also pay crumbs.... all income from overseas are not repatriated back... and when they do come back, taxes have been paid at country of origin as earnings of offshore companies... dividends repatriated back are not subjected to income tax... so Bolehland gomen is the loser...

    Also v high taxes in Australia
    I am not sure about the better quality of life...because I am quite sure a part of those taxes are used to provide for welfare and social security. For example if someone is jobless, the govt has a system to pay the jobless an allowance so that they don't starve. Some of the thick-skinned hard-core lazy bums in the UK and Oz actually live on that system... would you pay those taxes knowing you are working your butt off while some jobless person is too picky or lazy to take up a job?

    It all depends on how you adapt, blend in and co-exist with any shortcomings or benefits. Everyone is made different, different reactions, different mindset, different confidence levels, different circumstances, to me any consensus is meaningless. There's just as many people who are very happy or disappointed should they have migrated.

    TQ. I'm allowed to leave the country...
    What you have to do and the way you have to do it is incredibly simple.
    Whether you are willing to do it, that's another matter.
