Abstract This paper explores attitudes regarding tax evasion and the relationship between personal moral philosophy and such attitudes in a weak tax environment. Tax avoidance and its adverse impact on public interest have come into sharp focus in recent years Christensen and Murphy ; Dowling ; Freedman et al. It erodes tax bases globally, leading to serious threats to tax revenues, tax sovereignty and tax fairness OECD and reduces overall revenue intake for governments which could be used to facilitate public services and thereby promote the public interest Keightley and Sherlock Fiscal pressures world-wide have directed attention to billions of euro of tax avoided annually by multinationals such as Apple, Google, Amazon, Facebook and Starbucks, and media reports in the United Kingdom UK have focused predominantly on the immorality of their actions Independent b; The Telegraph Stakeholder theory is one of several theories proposed by Frecknall-Hughes and Kirchler to examine tax practices and the tax profession.
We adopt this theory by reviewing key UK stakeholder expectations in relation to public interest. The paper applies the stakeholder framework introduced by Mitchell et al , focusing on identification and salience of stakeholders with reference to power, urgency and legitimacy. The MGR case was selected as it was the first ruling whereby the FRC, the independent regulator for the accounting profession in the UK, criticised the profession for failing to provide clarity with regard to acting in the public interest.
It presses the profession to address this ambiguity. The paper is based on documentary research. For context, we also refer to newspaper articles, pertinent regulation and regulatory rulings, sourced from newspaper archives and pertinent webpages.

The paper is structured as follows. The authors further explore these issues by asking whether attitudes toward tax evasion differ by country or other demographic variables such as gender, age, ethnicity, income level, marital status, education or religion. The result is a multi-faceted analysis of tax evasion in cultural and institutional context, and, more generally, a study in ethical dilemmas and rational decision making.
