Starbucks ‘to Relocate European HQ from Amsterdam to London’

Starbucks Corp, the world’s largest coffee chain, will relocate its European headquarters from Amsterdam to London, following criticism last year of the group’s level of tax payments in the UK, reports
The Times
.

The British daily quoted Kris Engskov, Starbucks’ president of Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), who said the relocation was primarily to get closer to the UK as its biggest and fastest-growing market in Europe

According to
The Times
, senior executives will transfer to Starbucks’ head office in Chiswick, west London, although manufacturing jobs will remain in the Netherlands.

Starbucks said it would pay more tax in the UK following the relocation, which it expects to complete before the end of the year, although globally its bill would remain “relatively neutral,” the daily added.

Last June the group said that it would pay or pre-pay around £10m (US$16.7m) a year in taxes in 2013 and 2014, following revelations that it had paid no UK tax for the year to 30 September 2012.
