Geoff Riley's curator insight, June 7, 2013 12:46 PM

An example to use of a business that - quite legitimately - pays no corporation tax in the UK. Note the cost of the interest payments on loans to buy 3G spectrum ....Vodafone will increase investment in its UK network by more than 50 per cent to nearly £1bn this year as it prepares for the launch of next generation 4G mobile services - network quality (speed, access, reliability) is a crucial point of differentiation in the battle for market share - especially of potentially lucrative 4G data rich services.

Elea Misteli's curator insight, September 3, 2013 9:35 AM

Firms going down:

There is currently a high profile debate in the UK around corporate taxation, with Google, Starbucks and others being criticised for the small amount of corporation tax paid in the UK. And even Vodafone, the world's second largest mobile phone firm, paid no UK corporation tax for a second year running in 2012.

 

 

This is the example of a monolpoly benefit as this cooparation can increase revenue by reducing its cost. Furthermore Vodaphone is increasing its investments in the UK network and this will have a good effect on the Uk economy.
