Forbes on country-by-country reporting

January 13th, 2010

Forbes has a column up on country-by-country reporting today.

OK, I should declare an interest: I wrote it.

The argument is a simple one: country-by-country reporting pays for us all if we wants corporations to pay their fair share of the cost of bailing out government deficits.

NB: note to those who argue companies can’t pay tax. If you’re right why do they work so hard to avoid it? And why do they claim when doing so that it’s the company that gets the saving?
