Global brands face UK tax scrutiny

Starbucks, Google and Amazon asked to answer for small amount of tax paid despite high profits.

Three of the biggest global brands are being asked to justify the small amount of tax they pay in the UK.

The Public Accounts Committee has been asking why Starbucks recorded sales of nearly $5bn but paid less than $14m in taxes over the last 13 years.

Google and Amazon are also under question.
