Google paying less corporation tax

The average Google employee earns a cool £234,000 last year as it paid just £44 million in corporation tax.

MPs and tax campaigns believe the figures show Google are “writing their own rules”.

The tax take fell from £66m in 2018, after Google UK reported a fall in profits due to hiring an extra 800 extra staff.

Former chair of the public accounts committee Dame Margaret Hodge said: “It’s a joke and shows that they are not paying a fair share.”
