When a corporation moves its headquarters to a low-tax nation or corporate haven while retaining its material operations in its higher-tax country of origin, this is termed to be a corporate inversion.[1][2]

Corporate inversion is a form of tax avoidance.

Corporate inversions as a tax-reduction maneuver have become a public policy issue, as substantial tax revenues are lost.[3][4][5]
