Yesterday Ebay were accused of not paying their fair share in tax and today Facebook have been accused of the same thing. To ordinary taxpayers this looks like multinational companies playing by different rules to the rest of us.
“The Tories have dragged their feet for years on tackling tax avoidance which has created a climate where multinational companies think they can do what they want and not pay their fair share in tax.
The Tories should adopt Labour’s Tax Transparency and Enforcement Programme which would stop the dodgy deals and finally put an end to tax avoidance.
There is nothing less patriotic than trying to get away with not paying your taxes.”
