Otherwise US corporations would still be shovelling all their UK-made profits back home and not being subject to UK tax.

It's worth pointing out that this is not a one-way street, the UK gets a lot of tax income from FTSE-100 companies that make most of their profits abroad. The UK arm of BHP paid £4bn in taxes last year, and don't do much mining in the Cotswolds.
