New Zealand joins global efforts to tax online MNCs (the FANGs)

Patrick and all

This is long overdue. The principal of Transfer Pricing is under attack. As
it should be since this has been used for far too long to deny tax revenues
to countries where the service/product is being used. It’s going to be a
long battle however as these guys will fight hard to retain the status quo.
Something to watch closely.
