Andy Street said Amazon could “out-invest” and “out-trade” UK companies if the Government does not take action to force the online retailer to pay tax fairly in Britain.“There is less money to invest if you are giving 27pc of your profits to the Exchequer,” Mr Street told Sky’s Jeff Randall. “Clearly, if you are domiciled in a tax haven you’ve got much more [money]. They [Amazon] will out invest and ultimately out trade us. And that means there will not be a tax base in the UK.”
Oh, and regarding that quotation, note that damned word again? 'Fairly'.
