Google’s tax and the question it poses for HMRC

Posted on

I was on ITN’s main news last night discussing Google’s tax – which still appears to be way below any reasonable expectation.

The story was covered on their web site here.

The real question is a simple one: why is HMRC apparently happy with collecting maybe £100 million less than might reasonably be due? I’m not blaming Google. I am blaming HMRC and its political bosses for what still looks to be an unlevel playing field in UK business taxation.
