Reuters claims are plain wrong, we are asking them to retract them. For the facts, please see: http://www.vodafone.com/content/index/media/faqs_s

My math may be a little off,but £6bn works out to over £90 per man, woman and child in the UK.

Jimmy Carr had the right idea by only paying 1% tax, yet it was 100% legal and HM Revenue & Customs were fully aware of the loop hole and powerless to do anything about it.
A lot of people were outraged by this but I have two questions.
1) Whats the name of your accountant Mr Carr?
2) Do they want a new client?
If it's legal and above board we should all jump on the bandwagon and pay next to no tax. You can bet that in next to no time these loopholes woud soon be fixed if we all joined these schemes!

What offshore office is that?
Is that one of Vodafone Globals office's?
They do operate all across the globe.
This is old news and Vodafone have been cleared of any wrong doing by HMRC so why keep on bringing it up?

Its an easy target and people are willing to believe that VF has done something wrong because they want to believe it. The structure of international corporate taxes is very complicated and everyone struggles to understand it - including HMRC.
What you never hear about is overseas based sports people havig to pay tax on money they win in the UK even though they don't live here. See this link

I wonder if these people drink Startbucks coffee (£0 on £398m or 0%) or buy things from Amazon (£0 on £7.6bn or 0%)?
If not, i'm sure they all use Facebook (£238,000 on £175m or 0.1%) and I am in no doubt they use Google (£6m on £396m or 1.5%).
At least the later two companies mentioned along with Vodafone so pay something in tax to the government. The issue here is the sloppy job the gov have made of the tax system in this country. Close the loopholes or it will go on forever.
