Google Tax Under Scrutiny Over Latest UK Filings engine msg:4613937 9:39 am on Oct 1, 2013 (gmt 0) Unless someone changes the system, this is going to run and run.
Google paid just £11.6m in UK corporation tax last year, despite revenues of £506m and a £36.8m profit, according to documents filed at Companies House. It followed a payment of £6.1m in 2011, for which the company posted a £24.1m loss on a £395m turnover. The company made global profits of $10bn (£6.2bn) in 2012.

The latest Companies House filings showed Google also set aside £24m for taxes associated with shares awarded to staff between 2005 and 2011, to comply with new rules from HMRC.
