I was listening to a discussion this morning on Radio 4. I could get side tracked about a nice piece of middle ground radio in the morning. Between, “lets leap out of bed, star jump our way to our cereal bowls, what new Ferrari or Riva boat am I going to buy and how wonderful my life is Chris Evans or John Humphries tearing lumps out of one of our honourable!! members”. This morning I was in the mood for a bit of blood sport and the beating JH was going to give one of our honourable members.
I have been considering the amount we spend to enable our Google presence.
I am disappointed to see yet again, that the clever minds at Google et al have worked out a way to pay a pittance in tax, in a country in which they trade. I feel that Google are making fools out of us, particularly when we are doing all we can to sell our products and services, whilst charging sales tax and being taxed on slim profits. Don’t get me wrong, I do not want to pay or charge any more tax than I have to, but I accept a certain morality on this point.
