    Hi

    I have often used this site and their service is excellent.

    However, according to Wikipedia it has been part of the Amazon empire since 2011, with an annual turnover well in excess of £100 million.

    I wonder what their taxation record is. Should we now flag this site up as a target to boycott?

    Hi Stevieb50,

    Yes the Book Depository is part of the Amazon empire now and therefore naturally part of the boycott.

    It is a UK registered company but due to its parent company being Amazon it is likely that any profits made from its business will be moved into its Luxembourg subsidiary.

    We are just releasing a product guide to alternatives to Amazon in the next few weeks.

    Kind regards
