Big Four to be grilled by PAC
If you just can't get enough of the tax avoidance debate, tune into Parliament TV this Thursday when the heads of tax at the UK's Big Four firms will testify before the Public Accounts Committee (PAC).
While it was previously thought they wouldn't appear before the PAC until at least March, MPs will grill the heads of tax for their part in helping large companies to avoid tax on 31 January.
KPMG head of tax Jane McCormick, head of tax policy at Deloitte, Bill Dodwell, PwC head of tax Kevin Nicholson and Ernst & Young head of tax John Dickson will attend the hearing.
In November, executives from Google, Starbucks and Amazon appeared before the MPs and struggled to defend their elaborate tax arrangements.
