Tech tax comes into force The UK’s digital services tax has come into force, with the levy to apply to revenues generated by social networks, search engines and online marketplaces. The 2% tax, which affects profitable companies which generate more than £500m a year in global revenues, will apply to any revenues generated through advertising to British users or revenues made through facilitating transactions.
