LONDON - U.S. computer giant Microsoft will demand this week that the British government reduce Value Added Tax on goods bought over the Internet and introduce tax breaks for buyers of personal computers, the Times reported in its Monday edition.
Microsoft would also attack the government's forthcominge-commerce bill as being inflexible and inconsistent with the existing online business models, the newspaper said.
