It also seems that defending Amazon by saying all companies do it is misleading. Amazon has designed its business around tax-evasion: Amazon.com: America’s #1 Tax Evader?
Starbucks, Google, and Amazon Face Investigation For 'Immoral' Tax Evasion in the UK
Amazon has paid £1.8m, despite bringing a total revenue of £200m in the UK in 2011.
