Apple has reportedly not paid corporate taxes in the UK during last fiscal year ended on September 2012. Apple earned an operating profit of £68 million and paid nothing in terms of corporation tax to the government of UK.
Apple Inc. is a giant techfirm but it still dodges its taxes. It is being reported that Apple paid no corporate taxes in the U.K. during last fiscal year. The Financial Timesreportreveals the fact that Apple's latest filings show that it gained profit of $103.6M (£68m) in 2012. Despite of its big profit, the tech giant did not pay a single penny in terms of tax to the U.K. government. But it paid £11.4 million in terms of tax to the U.K. authorities on its operating profit of £60.4m in 2011.
But Apple's CEO stated during D11conference in May that its company did not dodge any taxes. Tim Cook has to give explanation because in same month, US Senate Committee stated that Apple “left very small earnings, and correspondingly small tax liabilities, in countries around the world”. It actually accused Apple of dodging $10 billion of US tax in a year.
Apple is managed to dodge U.K. taxes with the help of made stock awards schemes. The company made tax deductions by awarding £27.7M stock awards to employees. The award money is deductible and Apple adjusts all of its taxes in it. Now Apple has to pay no money in terms of taxes. But this is not fair. It is also not suitable to the image of a big company like Apple.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
