EDM number 852 in 2012-13, proposed by John Mann on 13/12/2012.
Categorised under the topics of Companies and Taxation.

That this House notes that despite having almost one-third of the UK coffee shop market, Starbucks has paid corporation tax only once in the past 15 years; calls for Starbucks and other multinational companies to be taxed on the real value of their production in the UK, not an arbitrary feel-goodamount and, failing this, for each individual outlet to be taxed on its profits, as is the expectation for businesses in Worksop and Retford such as Miss Poppy's Coffee Shop or The Bay Tree; and urges local authorities to refuse planning permission to Starbucks and other tax-avoiding companies until they agree to pay the same level of tax as their small business competitors each and every year.

This motion has been signed by a total of 16 MPs.
