Just wonder at what point people will move there PI.

I am using hi sec planets. It's like having a slum lord.

I'm looking to move existing PI with 16% + tax rates.

of course, it's time consuming and some isk is put into new facilities but wth.

Personally, if you're paying more than 10% net taxes, you're overpaying. Take your business elsewhere. If people insist on exploiting it, get out of the business.

There's more than one player in this game (pay to play).

If you move away from the trade hubs, you can find a lot of POCO's owned by one and two man alt corps that no longer play. Just pay a merc corp to take out their POCO's and then put up nice new ones for yourself. It will take a bit of time to make the cost back but you will get near-free PI from now on AND make money from others using your planets.

Shoot those POCO's then put your own up, and let us know if you offer 0% tax. Blink

I control several nullsec POCO's, and usually leave rates at ~3% or less. I'd imagine highsec POCO owners would rarely set their rattes above 5% unless they are purposely trying to drive away business.

16% is not worth it.

The cut-off point is at 15%. Why? Because at that point it becomes cheaper to launch it using the command center. Personally I think 10% is reasonable and up to 15% is pushing it but doable.

It's not uncommon to see high sec POCO taxes at between 17% and 25% including having trained the POCO tax skill up to level five.

This is high sec PVP at work.. they are trying to make the area the least attractive as possible to competition.

Something similar happened to one of my W-Space PI alts. After a few months with 10% tax, the owner suddenly decided to jump up the tax to 25% and since I was too lazy to do anything about it, again a few weeks later the owner just gave up and closed access completely.

Cue me having to search for another wormhole, tearing down the old PI-factories, building them again in the new wormhole. All paid for by the materials I had to smuggle out of the old wormhole via command center.

Now that I've learned from this, I've integrated my command center deep into my setup so I can't be surprised like that anymore. If my new POCO-owners decide to become greedy, I can just evade them completely. Lol

In HighSec of course planets are rather sparse with ressources and instead of doing a weird tax-avoidance setup like this moving is always better.
