Technology giants face paying bigger tax bills in Europe worth billions of dollars.

Austria is the latest country to announce plans to impose levies on large internet companies.

It follows the French government’s so-called GAFA tax, named after Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon.

This digital tax targets mainly revenues collected from advertising and market-related fees.

France and Germany wanted a European Union law introduced to ensure companies making huge profits online pay their fair share of taxes.

But so far, the European Commission has failed to get unanimous support.
