Roman Tax Evasion? – Money Minute #91


There is a lot we can learn from Roman Britain…

If you think HMRC has a brutal regime when it comes to collecting taxes, they quake in comparison to the Romans who governed the British for nearly 400 years.

In our latest segment of “Money Minute,” we look at how the roman empire used a method of fear and brute force to enforce their tax laws to their “loyal subjects”. It seems that the act of hiding money for the powers that be has been going on for much longer than we originally anticipated.

If there is a lesson for Rishi Sunak to take away from these previous events, it is squeeze us too hard, and we’ll make other arrangements.
