5.0 out of 5 stars Home truths, 16 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Treasure Islands: Uncovering the Damage of Offshore Banking and Tax Havens (Paperback)
I guess Amazon themselves must have read this more as a guide to tax management rather than the brilliant critique of modern international taxation that it is.

As a reminder, Amazon, made sales of £2.9 billion in the UK last year. But because all Amazon UK book sales are routed through its Luxembourg subsidiary, it does not pay any UK corporation tax on the profits from those sales.

Buy this book. But from your local bookshop, eh?

Have been thinking about purchasing this book for some time but have been put off purchasing from Amazon due to comments from other readers regarding Amazons tax affares so you can imagine my delight finding this book in a local charity shop and was more than happy to pay the £1·50 asked. I can now read knowing that the Gift Aid will be welcomed by the charity from the U.K.government. RESULT. LOL
