FILE - This Jan. 3, 2012 file photo shows the Starbucks Coffee logo in Mountain View, Calif. The European Union's executive wants thousands of multinationals to disclose in what member states they make money and pay taxes, an effort to close loopholes and crack down on the use of tax havens. EU Taxation Commissioner Jonathan Hill said on Tuesday, April 12, 2016 he wanted "to make sure that taxes are paid where profits are generated." Professor Crawford Spence of Warwick Business School said it was "a small, but important step towards ensuring that multinational companies pay their fair share of tax" and lauded the public part of the proposal. "Without transparency it would be impossible to shame companies into paying more. Of course, these sort of initiatives have a bigger impact on consumer facing organizations whose brand everybody recognizes, such as Google and Starbucks," Spence said. (AP Photo/Paul Sakuma, File)
