Chancellor Hammond’s new Digital Services Tax may not be the robust tax-attack on Tech Giants some were hoping for but many believe it’s a tangible step in the right direction.
The tech sector is booming. We live in a time of the mega private business in which the likes of Uber and Airbnb are extending their lives as privately held businesses by delaying public offerings. The venture capital asset class is more buoyant than ever and now includes atypical investors such as hedge and sovereign wealth funds who seek a piece of the action. Governments globally are also trying to attract innovation and tech talent using all manner of inducements, from tax breaks to immigration. So, are we living in the golden age of tech or is the frothy venture capital market a sign of a bubble reminiscent of that which led to the dot com bust of 1999/2000, and why does this matter to entrepreneurs?
