Exclusive: Mexico withheld millions in tax refunds from P&G, Unilever, Colgate

Yahoo Business - 29 mins 16 segs ago

By Alexandra Alper MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico's government withheld hundreds of millions of dollars in tax refunds owed to Procter & Gamble, Unilever, and Colgate combined as it sought to coax them and other multinationals to pay more income tax locally, according to people close to the talks. After luring foreign companies with corporate tax breaks for years, Mexico moved to boost its tax take as oil output has slumped, encouraged by an Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development crackdown on profit-shifting to low-tax countries. Mexico's tax authority SAT held back more than $384 million in value-added tax (VAT) from the three companies while it was probing them and nearly 270 others for possible tax avoidance after President Enrique Pena Nieto took office in late 2012, people familiar with tax negotiations say.

OPEC magazine op-ed that fueled oil rally baffles insiders

Yahoo Business - 38 mins 24 segs ago

An OPEC publication written by the exporter group's public relations team helped oil prices jump and prompted speculation over a possible shift in output policy - to the bafflement of some OPEC insiders. The commentary on Monday in the OPEC Bulletin, a magazine issued by OPEC's Vienna headquarters, said downward pressure on prices due to higher production "remains a cause for concern" and OPEC "stands ready to talk to all other producers". While the 799-word article helped add another 8 percent to oil's three-day surge, by Tuesday it seemed clear there was no sign of a significant shift in OPEC policy or any indication of a fresh push to shore up markets, analysts and OPEC insiders said.

China manufacturing contracts, euro zone and U.S. slows

Yahoo Business - 47 mins 38 segs ago

China's giant manufacturing industry contracted and euro zone and U.S. growth eased in August in data published on Tuesday, while the International Monetary Fund cut its forecast for world growth this year. "It's all consistent with a global economy which clearly is struggling to make any significant headway," said economist Peter Dixon at Commerzbank. Global economic growth is likely to be weaker than earlier expected, the head of the IMF said, due to a slower recovery in advanced economies and a further slowdown in emerging nations.

Two consecutive quarters of contraction are typically considered the textbook definition of a recession.

Yahoo Business - 1 hora 24 mins ago

U.S. factory activity hit a more than two-year low in August as manufacturers struggled with a strong dollar, weak global demand and the lingering effects of deep spending cuts in the energy sector.

The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) said its national factory activity index fell to 51.1 last month, the lowest reading since May 2013, from 52.7 in July.
