Google has defended its £130 million tax deal with HM Revenue & Customs in front of the Public Accounts Committee in the House of Commons reports Newshams Tax Advisers.
This has been a long drawn out affair and clearly unwelcome press and scrutiny for Google and HMRC.
Google has criticised HMRC for the length of time this has taken and believes the company has paid the right amount.
Striking tax deals capture the interest of the public and clearly in these times of heavy clampdown by Governments.
However, despite the raft of anti-abuse measures, there are still many legal tax planning opportunities for businesses and individuals to minimise their tax.
