Google UK coughs up £130m back taxes. Is it enough?

Smoking Gun

£4 billion UK revenue

According to financial reports 27% net profit.

By my numbers I make that £1 billion profit (I'm rounding down here)

20% corporation tax = £200 million in one financial year

I'm no accountant but £130 million for 10 years doesn't seem such a good deal.

p.s. I am not an accountant

p.p.s wont someone think of the children
