To celebrate Earth Day on Fri 22 Apr, Starbucks is giving a free drink to anyone who buys one of its coffee tumblers (travel mugs without a handle) in store.
This includes the £1 medium-sized reusable cup, so you could get your normal Starbucks drink for just £1 (normally up to £3.75).

Also up until 30th June each time you reuse your tumbler for a hot or cold drink you get 50p off.

This is a great offer if you are a regular Starbucks customer... might not be available at airports/ stations/ some franchises.

I think you're getting corporate tax muddled up with VAT. They haven't been paying corporate tax which many big companies haven't been doing which is the tax on profits. (or at least to the level they should be).

Is that aimed at me?
europa.eu/rap…htm The EU seem to think they have been given an 'unfair selective tax advantage for Starbucks in the Netherlands', illegal under EU state aid rules. They may well have closed Alki, and they are paying tax now, but they were not before. It is still not clear if the Profit they declare and pay tax on is actually correct.

Guess who actually pays the corporation tax?

It's us, the customers. We pay the companies money for goods or services, the price includes profits, and some of the profits go to HMRC.
No customers, no revenue, no profit, no tax.

no I actually point the finger in the right place, you must live in a dream world if you think anyone wouldn't follow tax law to reduce their tax liability, we all do it or should I say we all should, if you don't you will know someone who will. Companies are the same, they have a duty to their shareholders to make money that's it. You can forget anything else they say they are there for one thing and one thing only.

No lets point the fingers at the Government, and not just this one, you can go back decades and every government have been allowing companies to do it and since the stories broke so people who don't work in the tax or accounting industry first head about it they have done nothing, only this year that they announced they were going to do something. Best of all last week they formed an alliance of Europes big countries to figure out how to fix this, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Ireland the big players were not part of the group so nothing will be done. To add to this Switzerland where most of the money is funnels through isn't even in Europe so not part of the group.

Oh and don't say support your local independent coffee shop, they might not have the most expensive accountants but the reality is they are working to the same laws and same process as the big companies.

Ask your MP why the government has allowed this for so long, guess its so the press and then the general public take the heat out of the government when reality is its all of their fault.
Eslick is correct. Our tax rules, if printed would be a tower of paper as tall as an adult. Each year it gets more complicated. There's no chance anyone can understand it all, and lots of chances to find inconsistencies and errors and exploit them legally. And it'll just keep getting worse.

They also do pay the VAT, nobody was ever disputing that. What they weren't paying was any corporation tax on profits.
Starbucks paid corp tax of £8m on sales of £400m where they made £34m profit.

They spend a lot of their money on in the "Research and Development of coffee" in their operations abroad - despite it being a drink used since the 9th Century. Thats where all their money goes - just like all the other big corps.

Trouble is there is no real way of us knowing what profit they really make because of all the companies and countries involved. Yes they paid $8m in UK, but it's really a bit of a stag in the dark to the real amounts involved.
Sooo do you just ask for a mug then they instantly ask what drink you want? Or have you got to explain this?

If you are so concerned by tax avoidance why do you have Amazon deals on your profile?
just tried at Manchester Piccadilly and they are not doing earth day drinks
Is that a station? @demusss
Went into Trafford Park Starbucks, they've got no travel mugs AT 7:18AM. Cold.
yes Manchester Piccadilly train station
London Liverpool Street station branch is doing free drinks but only if you buy a plastic tumbler for £9ish or metal tumbler for £14
