CHLOE FARAND: 31 JAN 2016
Lloyds, brewer SABMiller and drugs company AstraZeneca were also among the six multinationals not to have paid any corporation tax in 2014, reports the Sunday Times.
The same year, the six British companies made a combined global profit of £30bn.
Shell used a complex corporate structure, a company branch in Switzerland, with hardly any tax rates, and tax havens such as Bermuda to reduced its tax payments.
In 2014, it paid no UK corporation tax but made a global profit of £19.87bn writes the Sunday paper.
