Coffee chain Starbucks has agreed to pay more UK corporation tax, after a public outcry over how little it pays.
Kris Engskov, managing director of Starbucks UK, announced that the company would pay "a significant amount of tax during 2013 and 2014 regardless of whether the company is profitable during these years".
The extra tax could amount to £20m over the next two years, he said.
"We know we are not perfect", the boss of the coffee chain added.
at least the CEO got one thing right - they are definitely not perfect.
Far from it.
About 180 degrees.
I think they must spike their drinks with some sort of addictive chemical, because that's the only reason I can fathom why people clamor for that bitter, burnt, over-priced swill. I'd rather drink instant dissolved in lukewarm tap water then their stomach-curdling brew.
