Cadbury owner Mondelez accused of tax avoidance
An investigation by the Sunday Times found the company was wiping out Cadbury’s bills via the Channel Islands’ stock exchange.
The move, while legal, is a controversial one. Margaret Hodge, chairwoman of the Commons all-party group on responsible tax suggested the move was unethical.
In a statement, Mondelez International reported: "In common with all global businesses, we pay corporation tax based on the laws of the countries in which we operate. We comply with all applicable tax legislation in the UK, and on a global basis we pay hundreds of millions of dollars in corporate income tax annually.
It added that businesses such as Mondelez make a significant contribution to the UK economy, "both through direct spending on employees and suppliers, and through the recirculation of that expenditure in the wider economy".
