    Australia’s largest coalminer, Glencore, paid almost no tax over the past three years, despite income of $15 billion.

    The company reduced its tax burden by taking large, unnecessarily expensive loans from its associates overseas.

    At up to 9 per cent, the interest rates on these $3.4 billion in loans were double what the company would have had to pay had it simply borrowed the money from the bank.

    Glencore also benefitted from the total of $17.6 billion in government subsidies and assistance for the mining industry.
