Re: Yahoo owes taxes?

It’s the same... Rich people (say Lewis Hamilton) and lawyered up corporations (Apple, Altaba, Thames Water etc) can avoid, dodge or ultimately barter/negotiate a deal on their affairs - avoiding prosecution.

Small people get hammered and fleeced for the full amount. I’d love to be able to offer HMRC 50p on the pound ‘deal’ against my self-assessment child benefit clawback dues.

Note Vodafone (and shareholders as was more complex) had a similar massive windfall from it’s disposal of a near half stake in Verizon. Was that any messier as appropriate context El Reg journo’s.
