Google reveals latest UK tax bill

Google was charged £36.4m in UK corporation tax last year, according to its latest accounts.

The US search engine giant recorded sales of £1.03bn and a pre-tax profit of £149m in the UK for the 12 months to the end of June 2016.

Like other major tech firms, Google has come under pressure over its tax arrangements.

Labour said the firm was still not paying its “fair share” of tax in the UK.

Google’s accounts also showed it hired an extra 600 workers to take its UK workforce to nearly 3,000 last year.
