UK Uncut plans Vodafone tax protests on Saturday June 14th

Protect group UK Uncut says it’ll make Vodafone the target of a ‘national day of action’ on Saturday 14th June. The campaigning organisation is repeating its claim that Vodafone hasn’t paid any corporation tax since 2011.

According to UK Uncut, its June protests will ‘focus on how tax dodging is crippling the UK’s social housing sector’. It’s encouraging protestors to transform Vodafone shops into homes and hostels, with dozens of stores expected to be affected.

The Financial Times quotes Vodafone as saying “UK Uncut protests are totally unwarranted and ignore all of the salient facts. In 2013 we paid £275m in direct taxes, while our total cash contribution to the UK Government was more than £1.8bn. Corporation tax is charged on profits, not revenues, and is only a small part of the total tax contribution for businesses.”
