French plotting “Google” tax

French plotting "Google" tax - Accountancy Age.

Plans are in the pipeline for France to hit internet search providers with a tax on advertising revenue.

The sweeping proposal, which would affect internet giants such as Google, Microsoft and Yahoo! every time a French net surfer clicked on an advertisement or sponsored link, was floated in a government-commissioned survey.

Guillaume Cerutti, one of the authors of the report said the tax would put an end to "enrichment without any limit or compensation", the Daily Telegraph said.

If my work showing Google pays little or no tax outside the USA has given rise to this, that's very good news.

Tax avoidance does not pay is the right message to deliver.
