I would not call the practice tax evasion.
Aki Korhonen

Of course it’s tax evasion. You build your company with the infrastructure and market of one nation and then once you’re big enough you move headquarters to a different country, while still benefiting from the markets of the original country.

It may not be an illegal practice, but a bigger issue is a weakening ‘pact’ between companies and the societies they live and operate in.

There’s no easy answer here, but I don’t think you can summarily say ‘nope, no problem here.’
