At a meeting of the financial heads of G20 countries in Southwestern Japan, a discussion was held on developing a new tax system for large internet companies such as Google and Facebook. Specifically, the financial heads discussed implementing a tax policy under which such companies would be taxed in each country instead of just the one in which their head office is located. Taxes due in each country would be based on turnover in each country. It is estimated that such a move would add a total of EUR 224 billion to state budgets throughout the world.
