And why would you give a rats whether they pay tax or not on money they make?

Just my 2c
The above reason is a good reason why 3 telescopes shops have closed down in a short period of time. As long as you don't mind this from happening, this is a perfectly viable concept.

I also think it is a good idea as eventually many business's will close their doors and it will either be too late or someone may try to determine why this is happening and actively try to resolve it. I know from my experience the negative aspect of this is that I am getting a lot of service calls from people that are experiencing problems and I cannot help them. I don't think this is a major issue with telescope products though.
