Glencore denies media claim it avoided Australia taxes

Glencore (GLCNF, GLNCY) denies claims by an Australian newspaper that its coal division had paid no taxes in Australia in the past three years on income of A$15B ($14.10B).

The Sydney Morning Herald reported that Glencore cut its tax exposure by claiming tax breaks on expensive loans that were not necessary; interest rates on the loans, extended by Glencore's associates overseas, were up to double what it would have had to pay banks.

Glencore calls the claim that no income tax was paid over the last three years "preposterous."
