Google has grown to become the world's biggest search engine by far. Today, Google is a $300 billion business employing more than 30,000 people in 40 countries around the globe.

Despite its dominance, Google has come under sustained attack in Britain because of its reluctance to pay corporation tax. Rather than book its advertising sales in the UK, Google funnels these revenues through its Dublin office. Doing this massively reduces company taxation, which is why Google paid a mere £10 million in corporation tax from 2006 to 2011.
