Japan and South Korea Bar U.S. Wheat Imports
By VICTORIA SHANNON
Published: May 31, 2013
Japan and South Korea suspended some imports of American wheat, and the European Union urged its 27 nations to increase testing, after the United States government disclosed this week that a strain of genetically engineered wheat that was never approved for sale was found growing in an Oregon field.
trend? trend? wouldn't it depend on the short list? and someone's already sitting on that information prior to public publish...
that the 2nd public accounting firm is shocked! shocked! shocked I tell ya! at what they're reading - and they're only on the first pages?
...and pay no taxes to anyone? ???
and we're sanctioning Iran and Cuba for what? If Apple's telling the truth, looks like Ireland's taking more food off everyone's global plate than Cuba and Iran... ... ... truly amazing...
i say you go off and pop some tags dude - who are you investing for?
there's a HUN everyday - and leaving some spare on the table for the next person always pays in karma
(don't tell anyone bout your 500%+ gains though... that breaks the spell ;}
The distinction is crucial because if deals were finalised by London-based staff, Google could be deemed to have made profits on the contracts which would be taxable in Britain, rather than low-tax Ireland. “It uses a concocted scheme to avoid tax. It’s a smoke-screen to distort where the substance of its economic activity is really taking place,” Jones told The Sunday Times.
He said he attended meetings where Google’s London sales staff closed deals, including winning contracts from eBay, the online auction site, Kelkoo, a price comparison website, and Lloyds TSB. He showed The Sunday Times contracts, invoices and correspondence between Google and its customers in Britain. One 2004 contract had the address of Google’s London headquarters next to the heading. Clients would be sold deals by Google staff in London, who were in charge of sending out contracts and receiving signed documents back from clients. In addition, British clients paid money into British bank accounts for Google services.
"...Although Google’s London sales staff would negotiate and sign contracts with British customers, and cash was paid into a UK bank account, deals were technically booked through its Dublin office to minimise its liabilities here. Jones, a devout Christian and father of four, is ready to hand over a cache of more than 100,000 emails and documents to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), detailing the “concocted scheme”.

... or all all the internet corps doing it?
A FORMER Google executive has blown the whistle on a massive and “immoral” tax avoidance scheme that has “cheated” British taxpayers out of hundreds of millions of pounds over the past decade.
Barney Jones, 34, who worked for the internet search giant between 2002 and 2006, has lifted the lid on an elaborate structure which diverts British profits through Ireland to the Bermuda tax haven.
