Complainant Name:
Mr Ben Saunders

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Guardian

Complaint:

Mr Ben Saunders complained to the Press Complaints Commission, under Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors’ Code of Practice, about two articles published on the newspaper’s website which he considered had inaccurately reported HMRC’s assessment of tax avoidance in the UK and a further article, also online, which he considered had inaccurately calculated the level of corporation tax owed by Google by applying the tax to turnover as opposed to profit.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved after the PCC negotiated amendments to the online articles, as well as the publication of footnotes to record the corrections which had been made.

Date Published: 19/12/2013
