Amazon is the UK's number one tax avoider
Taxes fund our schools, hospitals and public services, but Amazon aren't paying their fair share.
Amazon's UK subsidiary (which also includes brands Lovefilm.com, Kindle, Audible.com) paid £3.2m in corporate taxes in 2012 on sales of £4.3bn - a rate of less than 0.1%.
We need to use our consumer power to make Amazon pay a fair rate of tax.

MPs support call for shoppers to boycott Amazon
MPs Natascha Engel, Meg Hillier, Margaret Hodge, John McDonnell, Michael Meacher, Austin Mitchell, Grahame Morris and Dennis Skinner are all backing a boycott of Amazon this Christmas.
Margaret Hodge has been boycotting Amazon since the company's appearance before the House of commons public accounts select committee which she chairs, she said:
“It's hugely important that we all take a stand and damage the reputation and business of companies such as Amazon that deliberately avoid paying their fare share of tax to the common purse for the common good.”
“If enough people boycott Amazon then we will damage their business. Amazon's market share and reputation matters.”

A word about Amazon marketplace
Our boycott is of Amazon products and does not extend to third parties selling on the Amazon marketplace. We do however recommend trying to search for the marketplace seller in order to try to buy from them direct where possible.
