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 Board of Audit and Inspection of Korea (“BAI”) investigated British American Tobacco for tax avoidance in the 2014 fiscal year. The investigation confirmed tax avoidance and imposed additional sales tax (excise and VAT) and penalties. BAT has appealed to the tax tribunal against the assessment.
