Starbucks are now in talks to pay more taxes in the UK. This could be that the boycotts by some and negative publicity is beginning to hit them. It could also be that they fear a compulsory tax change that could hit them even harder.

Some British people could have taken Starbucks to court in the Canton of Vaud with even worse results. You see, if you as part-owner of a company live in one town and work in another, the two towns will negotiate a deal about you, by which the place of work gets a part of the taxes reimbursed by the place of residence. The basis of these calculations is the tax-levels of the two towns. Interesting of course would be to hear (have heard) what the lawyers told the Starbucks managers

After the Germany debacle, nobody in Switzerland is in the mood to risk more conflicts with other countries.
