UK går enegang i beskatning af US-baseret techfirmaer

    Den engelske avis Guardian skriver,  at det internationale skattesystem igen er blevet udfordret af nye kontroversielle udmeldinger.  Ángel Gurría, der generalsekretær for OECD, der fører tilsyn med netop globale skatteregler, sagde, at Storbritannien skulle “hold fire” med sine planer om at beskatte big tech-firmaer som Google, Facebook og Apple til 2% af UK’s indtægter .

    “The US responded by threatening to hike tariffs on UK car exports, but Britain’s chancellor, Sajid Javid, insists the tax will still go ahead from April. France’s president, Emmanuel Macron, also agreed to delay (but not discard) a similar tax in exchange for the US’s agreement not to place tariffs on French exports. The vast tectonic plates of international taxation are finally beginning to shift,” skriver Guardian.
