NotesNews: "Parliament's powerful spending watchdog today formally castigates the internet giant Google for a "brazen" and "unconvincing" attempt to avoid paying its fair share of UK tax. In a damning report, the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) called on HM Revenue & Customs to "fully investigate" the company, after concluding it had used "highly contrived" tax arrangements with the sole purpose of avoiding corporation tax on its multibillion-pound UK revenues. .... Speaking as the report was published, Margaret Hodge, the committee's chair, said: "Google brazenly argued before this committee that its tax arrangements in the UK are defensible and lawful. [But they have] no purpose other than to enable the company to avoid UK corporation tax. ... " Oliver Wright, The Independent
