Sony to move European base to Amsterdam as Brexit nears

Sony said Wednesday that it would register its European business in Amsterdam, switching its legal base from London. The company blamed uncertainty surrounding Britain’s plans to leave the EU for the move. Sony said this will be effective from March 29, the day Britain is set to exit the EU and called the move an insurance against the risk of a disorderly ’no deal’ Brexit.

"Despite the move, Sony won't shift personnel and operations from the existing UK operations" - So this is a tax dodge then. Like Starbucks having its HQ in somewhere like Luxembourg (with no staff)

Sony in league with other powerful interests start next level of scare tactics aimed at usurping the democratic process in the UK.
