> They WANT to cheat, can AFFORD to do so

That's the whole idea, the tax certificate you could obtain from them would be low, so you'd only be able to write off a low amount in a higher tax location.

Only if you could provide evidence that you'd somehow run up huge expenses in a "cheating" country would you be able to avoid the tax in the higher one.

I guess it would depend on just how a company would be expected to prove it's costs.
