We all (including companies) need to pay our taxes or public services will suffer.

The Guardian has the story on its web site – see link above.

Those who do not pay their fair share of taxes, be they companies or individuals, are, by their actions in my view, putting public services at risk. They are also by default expecting others to fund those services whilst they take a taxation holiday.

The fact that both the Irish Government and Apple have been pulled up by the EU for participating in what the EU is calling an illegal agreement on taxation is a good thing and shows how effective the EU can be at times in ensuring the right thing is done.

Do I take it that Brexiters will want to ignore this EU intervention?

Thanks to Roy Connell for spotting this story.
