Starbucks reported its biggest profit of all time in the UK, and it can serve as a long-term completion of a tax dispute with the British government.
After the company was involved in a major tax scandal in 2012, when it was accused of tax evasion, Starbucks paid UK a large sum of income tax for the first time this year.
The company paid the tax in the amount of £ 8,1 million to a profit of £ 34.2 million. And it is a little bit less than it paid for all 14 years of its work in the UK.
The results show a desire to change the attitude of the British government to the Starbucks, to draw a line in the tax scandal and build a compact and successful business through actions such as the francise transferring of 74 companies’ places. Jeffrey Young, Managing Director of Allegra Group commented that the company is ready to develop and expand in the UK, the demand in the coffee market is growing, and this step aims to get rid of an expensive lease, which prevents us to take the path of growth for many years.
There are a lot of comments about Starbucks decisions, including, among applications bloggers said that the British government knowingly accused the company of violating tax laws, Starbucks was not able to pay, because they had no income because of the high price for rental of premises .
