BBC: Google’s tax bill rises to £50m

BBC: Google’s tax bill rises to £50m. “The technology giant’s annual accounts show that the company will pay corporation taxes of £49.3m on UK profits of £202.4m. Although the tax figure is the highest the company has paid – and up on the £36.4m it paid last year – it will be likely to reignite the debate about taxation and digital firms. The total value of Google’s sales in the UK is about £5.7bn a year.”
