In the digital era, the companies that used to be the greatest are no longer leaders. Today, the Gang of four are maintaignig the economic sector and this after proving that they deserve. But, Do they have a fair balance of duties compared to other international companies?
GAFA, Known as the Big Four tech companies, it describe four US multinational online service and software companies that dominated the web during the 2010s until now. Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple are four giant companies with annual profits equal to the budgets of a group that crossed continents. They are companies that have not been taxed in any of the countries of the world, although they use their telecommunications infrastructure and internet spaces for these countries. After that the number of users around the world for applications and websites of these companies increased, France and Britain have decided to begin to examine the status of these companies.
Recently, the French President Emmanuel Macron, announced that he sees this trend as unfair and that it will impose a flat annual tax on these companies. According to him, it is not fair that start-up companies and entrepreneurs working in the IT sector pay taxes with their small size while the greatest world companies are at the top without respecting their duties. Finally the French state, which is one of the great countries, reached a financial settlement from previous years due to Google, to start paying a flat tax from the next year, now Germany expects to reach an agreement with some of these companies to settle financially for the next years too.
