French presidential front runner Emmanuel Macron has filed a legal complaint after his far-right rival Marine Le Pen implied he had an "offshore account in the Bahamas". The complaint referred to comments Ms Le Pen made in Wednesday night's TV debate between the anti-EU, anti-immigration candidate and her centrist, pro-EU rival, widely dubbed the most brutal in French presidential history. With three days to go before Sunday's second round run-off, the French saw Mr Macron as the debate's outright winner, snap polls showed. Some commentators suggested Ms Le Pen was seeking to position herself as pugnacious "head of the opposition" ahead of her likely defeat on Sunday

A new documentary about the New York Times arrives at just the moment America’s newspaper of record presents itself as something that stands not for news but for power, partisanship, and elitism. It’s titled “Obit,” perhaps in a witty response to the digital era’s advance on outmoded media. An inside look at how the paper’s staff of obituary writers and researchers perform their tasks, Obit may be the closest that any media-maker gets to examining the Times’ confidential procedures during this terrible period of oppositional journalism.

HMRC to widen football tax probe
“The structure of a large corporation can often be a very complex conflagration of parent corporations, divisions, subsidiary corporations, sister corporations, holding companies, merged entities, corporate spin-offs and the like. Tracking down all of the related relationships between these entities can be an equally complex process of deep investigation into federal, state, tax, credit and corporate records. An increasing trend in recent years has been for some U.S. corporations to establish subsidiary operations overseas. In some cases it may be simply because it’s more effective to have a subsidiary manage their operations within the country or region. However, a growing tactic among corporations is to use overseas subsidiaries to take advantage of lower foreign tax rates. This concept – often known as tax avoidance – has been an increasing part of a company’s strategy to minimize tax obligations by moving revenue and profits into locations that have lower tax rates.

However, this has become a political and business controversy as a number of large companies, particularly major information industry companies such as Google, Facebook, and Apple have been criticized for using these strategies to “avoid” or reduce their United States tax obligations.”
