OECD says you can’t do special tax rules for digital companies

The FT report:

Proposals for a crackdown on digital companies such as Google and Amazon are to be dropped, as governments push ahead with measures affecting the global economy.

Designing special tax rules for internet companies would not be viable, given the growing digital presence in large parts of the economy, an international task force has concluded.

So I’m really looking forward to details of the magic wand that Labour claim they have, that will mean those companies will pay tax in New Zealand based on their turnover instead of their profit.
