Google Office Raided By Police

Police raided Google’s main office in Paris as part of an ongoing investigation into the company’s tax affairs.

Around 100 French officers arrived at the offices at 5am as part of a dawn raid, a source from the finance ministry said.

The company stands accused of owing France £1.3billion in unpaid taxes.

A Google spokesman told Metro.co.uk: ‘We comply with French law and are cooperating fully with the authorities to answer their questions.’

Google has come under scrutiny from countries such as France and Britain for the way they generate profit locally but pay tax in other countries which have much lower tax rates.
