Government Investigations of Big Tobacco
In their mission to maximize profits from the sale of deadly and addictive products, tobacco companies have been investigated by governments across the world for activity including bribery, corruption, and avoiding paying corporate taxes. Tobacco companies like British American Tobacco use their relationships with government officials, politicians, media, and businesses to block tobacco control policies. Tobacco companies can be weakened when their misconduct is publicly exposed and those relationships are strained and severed.
The Brazilian Federal Tax Authority has filed claims against British American Tobacco’s subsidiary Souza Cruz seeking to reassess the profits of overseas subsidiaries to corporate income tax and social contribution tax.
