Tax avoiders make it harder for small firms
Published 21/05/2013 | 04:20
AS Amazon and other large multinationals continue to push the tax rulebook to the limit, are they not aware of the impact their actions could have on small businesses?
With 95% of all businesses classed as 'micro-businesses', there is little doubt that small firms are the lifeblood of our economy.
Growing these businesses would help to transform our economic position; if just a small portion of these micro-businesses took on one employee each, then unemployment figures would drop dramatically.
The danger is that a crackdown on avoidance schemes practised by multinationals will impact on all firms, large and small alike.
