Vodafone’s excuses for not paying tax don’t stack

Posted on

Vodafone paid no corporation tax in the UK last year.

Vodafone claims it paid lost of other taxes here. In fact it says it paid £338 million - more than the £294 million of profit it made in the UK.

Well, with the greatest of respect to Vodafone, the fact I pay my council tax, road fund licence, VAT and national insurance does not let me off paying my income tax. But that's what Vodafone's trying to argue.

And politely, it's utter nonsense.
