Vodafone loses tax case in the UK


Vodafone has lost a UK tax-avoidance case in the Court of Appeal that could cost it up to £2.2bn.


The appeal relates to tax payment on one of Vodafone’s Luxembourg subsidiaries. It was brought by HMRC after the network won a High Court ruling last July and the ruling means HMRC can now go ahead with an inquiry into Vodafone’s tax returns.


The operator said in its most recent annual report that it had set aside around £2.2bn for tax liabilities and interest that could arise from the case.


The company can still apply to the House of Lords to appeal the decision.
