Coffee chain Starbucks has reported a 3% rise in like-for-like sales during the fourth quarter, ahead of expectations for a 2.2% increase.
It reports that Starbucks' European business effectively had a UK tax rate of just 2.8% in the year to the end of 2017.
The report has a number of other calculations for the tax rate. It also points out that it is difficult to work out Starbucks' tax liabilities as it has five entities based in the UK - a structure which tax campaigners say is much too complicated.
