Google Revenues Sheltered in No-Tax Bermuda Soar to $10 Billion – Bloomberg

Google Revenues Sheltered in No-Tax Bermuda Soar to $10 Billion – Bloomberg.

Google Inc. (GOOG) avoided about $2 billion in worldwide income taxes in 2011 by shifting $9.8 billion in revenues into a Bermuda shell company, almost double the total from three years before, filings show.

By legally funneling profits from overseas subsidiaries into Bermuda, which doesn’t have a corporate income tax, Google cut its overall tax rate almost in half. The amount moved to Bermuda is equivalent to about 80 percent of Google’s total pretax profit in 2011.
