Friday’s Financial Times leads with US President Joe Biden’s tax plans. The US Treasury wants the world’s biggest multinational companies – including big tech firms – to pay taxes to national governments based on their profits in each country. The proposal has been sent to 135 other countries in a bid to reach an agreement on international taxation. But the paper says the plan “faces an uphill battle through the US Congress” – although if it is accepted, other countries would be able to increase revenues from big US tech firms.
