garet Thatcher’s £6million townhouse is owned by a mysterious company with links to three notorious tax havens.
Financial experts said it could have been a scheme which would help her estate avoid millions of pounds in inheritance tax. But because the former prime minister’s affairs are shrouded in secrecy, it may be impossible to find out.
The trail leads to offshore businesses in the British Virgin Islands with links to Liechtenstein and Jersey.
The £6million property Thatcher lived in for more than 20 years is owned by Bakeland Property Company, based in the Caribbean territory. Their official address is a PO Box in Liechtenstein and they had their original roots in St Helier, Jersey.
The question marks over her home come as police in London prepare for anarchist demonstrations this weekend, following her death on Monday.
Any suggestion of avoiding a £2.4million inheritance tax bill will spark outrage following the row over
who is paying for Thatcher’s lavish £10million funeral.
