Moved and New Corps in a Country

Topics: Suggestions: Moved and New Corps in a Country

The Issue:
Country A has a Low Tax rate, presumably to entice Enterprises to invest in Country A. So Enterprise B relocates a Corp to Country A.
Right after the Corp is moved into Country A, Country A Jacks the Tax to something unreasonable and ridiculous. Country A in this example has 92T SC$ so money was not an issue.
I don't mind helping a country in a tight spot for money, but frivolous Tax gouging by jerks like this is unacceptable.

So Enterprise B cannot move their Corp for 40 months, great. Now unless the Corp has a significant Cash reserve, it must pay this ridiculous new Tax set by the jerk in Country A.

My suggestion is simple:
Remove the 40 month lock if Country A Jacks their Tax rate by more than 25% and has significant cash available.
Country A obviously does not want the new Corp there and with 92T SC$ they don't need it either. Personally, I don't want my Corp there being taxed by a jerk.

Why a 25% increase limit? Well simply because Country A might need more money for whatever reason and I am willing to help them to a point. Any more than 25% and I see it as Country A is just a jerk. Jerks don't deserve my Corp's money.

Tax rate can only go up by 2% per month.

There is a 2% limit increase per month. Although, I do agree.

Countries can also disallow CEOs, so if country A were truly smart, they would've done that instead of tax jerking.

It can go up 3% a month. Just looked at my own country and verified. Which means in 10 months it can go from 30% to 60%. You still have 30 months of lock down to be annoyed with.

Whatever the technical details may be, it is still ridiculous.

Just to try and make it clear, when I say 25% limit I am talking about taking a Tax Rate from 30 to 38 or more AFTER your Corps is moved to the Country. That means given 30 * 25% = 7.5 so 8 exceeds the 25% limit. That means in 3 months time, my Corp should have the 40 month lock removed and I should be able to move my Corp. I am not intending to suggest the Tax rate is adjusted all at once, though the Game should know what it is set to and be able to react on the 40 month Lock accordingly...

just have an enforceable contract by gm, when enterprise corp goes into a country.

allow these parties to set their own contractual terms

such as:
use of country resource = 30% of corp revenues
corp tax rate = 25%

term period = 10,000 game months

penalty for dishonoring contract = $1T SC fine

each party can choose to go their own way after term period end, or do another contract

everyone happy, no cheating, lying, etc :)
