The British government said it raised $430 million in taxes on digital services from IT companies in a year.
The 2% tax on gross income introduced in the UK was designed to partially counteract the tax exemption measures used by Apple, Amazon, Google and other volumes. The relevant law has been in force since 2020.
As for the Cupertinos, they pay for the sale in the App Store, Apple Music, iCloud and so on.
Previously, France became the first to introduce a “technology tax” in the amount of 3% of the income of IT giants available in the country. While this is a temporary measure for individual countries, it will become global in 2024 for all countries where they work. [9to5]
