Tech: Facebook, Amazon, and Google are going to have to pay a major new tax on their UK sales

share on:

Britain's Chancellor Philip Hammond.

The UK has introduced a digital services tax, which will drastically increase the amount of tax big tech firms will pay.

The UK government announced a drastic change to the way Silicon Valley tech giants such as Facebook, Amazon, and Google are taxed in the UK.

Chancellor Philip Hammond said the UK would tax 2% of the revenue that tech giants make from UK users, in what he said would raise up to £400 million ($512 million) a year for the nation's coffers from 2020.

This is a developing story…
