U.K. Outcry at Trump’s Tweets Reopens Fight Over State Visit

Opposition politicians demanded that the idea of a state visit should be dropped, with some critics arguing that it would place Queen Elizabeth II, as host, in an invidious position.One opposition Labour lawmaker, Stephen Doughty, argued that by sharing the videos, Mr. Trump showed himself to be “racist, incompetent or unthinking — or all three,” while another, Dennis Skinner, referred to “this fascist president.”The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan — who was involved in a separate dispute with President Trump after a terrorist attack in London — suggested on Twitter that the president should not be invited on any official visit to Britain, not just one with full pomp and ceremony.Nor was the anger confined to opposition lawmakers. Sajid Javid, a Muslim member of Mrs. May’s Conservative cabinet, tweeted a strong condemnation on Wednesday of Mr. […]

The Paradise Papers: After a Tax Crackdown, Apple Found a New Shelter for Its Profits

Seeking ‘the Holy Grail’Since the mid-1990s, multinationals based in the United States have increasingly shifted profits into offshore tax havens. Indeed, a tiny handful of jurisdictions — mostly Bermuda, Ireland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands — now account for 63 percent of all profits that American multinational companies claim to earn overseas, according to an analysis by Gabriel Zucman, an assistant professor of economics at the University of California, Berkeley. Those destinations hold far less than 1 percent of the world’s population.Continue reading the main storyCriticism of such profit shifting was largely ignored until government finances around the globe came under pressure in the years following the 2008 financial crisis, when the practice led to government inquiries, tax inspector raids, media scrutiny and promises of reform.In May 2013, the Senate’s investigative subcommittee released a 142-page report on Apple’s tax avoidance, finding that the company was attributing billions of dollars in profits each year to three Irish subsidiaries that declared “tax residency” nowhere in the world.Under Irish law, if a company can convince Irish tax authorities that it is “managed and controlled” abroad, it can largely escape Irish income tax. By seeming to run its Irish subsidiaries from its world headquarters in California, Apple ensured that Irish tax residency was avoided.At the same time, American law dictated that the subsidiaries were only tax residents in the United States if incorporated there. The federal government permits taxes on any income generated by foreign units to be deferred indefinitely, as long as the company says those profits stay offshore.U.S. Profits Made in Offshore Tax Havens IncreaseThe share of U.S. companies’ foreign profits attributed to a handful of tax havens has more than doubled in past 20 years.%604020063%2000200520102015“Apple has sought the holy grail of tax avoidance: offshore corporations that it argues are not, for tax purposes, resident anywhere in any nation,” then-Senator Carl Levin, Democrat of Michigan, who was the subcommittee chairman, said at the 2013 hearing.Ireland’s finance minister at the time, Michael Noonan, at first defended his country’s policies: “I do not want to be the whipping boy for some misunderstanding in a hearing in the U.S. Congress.” Ireland had long pursued business-friendly tax policies, which helped lure jobs to the country, primarily for technology and pharmaceutical companies. Apple now has about 6,000 employees in Ireland, including customer service and administrative jobs.But by October 2013, in response to growing international pressure, Mr […]

Barcelona: A Global City in the Eye of a Separatist Storm

“If Catalonia remains in Spain, I will continue to support Barça,” Mr. Toledano said by telephone. “In the case of independence, I would stop doing it because I want to give my support to a Spanish team that plays in the league of my country.”This kind of tension has led some to fear that the independence debate has turned Barcelona into a less tolerant and more parochial city.“Barcelona is a mixture of different people who speak different languages and came from different places,” Mr […]
