Top finance officials of the G-20 group countries agreed on Saturday that a global system is urgently needed to tax big internet companies like Google and Facebook. But it has to be done in such a way that conflicts are prevented. The G20 group countries have assigned this work to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). He has been told to fix the system because some big companies are taking advantage of lower taxes in countries like Ireland and paying nothing as tax in countries where he is making big profits.
