Facebook's Messenger payments looms over Australia's big banks

FB

Facebook's challenge to Australia's big banks is coming as early as next year, when the social media giant is expected to introduce peer-to-peer payments within its Messenger service, hot on the heels of local banks' expected launch of their own P2P payments network. More than 13 million people use Facebook Messenger in Australia each month, a figure that will have local banks – who have invested more than $1 billion in their own P2P payment platform – worried the Silicon Valley giant will vacuum up their customers. The arrival of Messenger payments in Australia could make it harder for the banks to recover their investment in the NPP.

Europe on social media for digital tax

FB GOOG +1 more FB GOOG GOOGL

As recently as March, five of the world's top 10 valued companies were Silicon Valley behemoths: Apple, Google's Alphabet, Microsoft, Amazon and Facebook. Indeed, actual revenues from advertising are minimal in France and Germany, but at Facebook HQ Ireland they grew to 7.9 billion euros, even though the vast majority does not come from the tiny EU island-nation of a mere 2.5 million users. However, this tax would be distributed in all the countries where the company operates, and not according to the level of booked profit in each of these states, but according to the level of activity. Driven by Macron, France has proposed an unusual idea that has so far divided Europe: tax the US tech giants on sales generated in each European country, rather than on the profits that are cycled through low-tax countries.

Europe turns on Facebook, Google for digital tax revamp

FB GOOG +1 more FB GOOG GOOGL

"One of the first issues, therefore, is that of transparency: to rule that large companies publish data on activities and taxes paid in all the countries where they are present.
