Google and tax avoidance
This month we've rated a number of companies on the likelihood that they are involved in tax avoidance strategies.
Google scored amongst the worst.
Their list of subsidiaries included a number considered to be at high risk of being used for tax avoidance. This was due to the company type and the fact that they were located in tax havens.
These subsidiaries included:
Google Holdings PTE, LTD - Singapore
Motorola Mobility China Holding Ltd - Hong Kong
Google Inc - UHC - Delaware (US)
The list also included several other subsidiaries based in Switzerland and Bermuda.
The full list will be released early next month as part of our guide to e-books and e-readers, book shops and online book sellers.
