BRITAIN’S biggest businesses are publishing increasing amounts of information on their tax statuses, according to a PwC report published today.

It found 49 of the FTSE 100 firms disclosed information on their approach to tax payments in 2013, up 50 per cent on the 32 who did so in 2012.

The businesses have opened up after pressure from politicians and campaigners over tax affairs.
