Italy's tax authority has reached a €227 million (£173m) settlement with Google over unpaid taxes between 2009 and 2013.

Based on today's exchange rate, it means Italy secured around £53 million from Google than the UK. Last week, HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) agreed a settlement for Google to pay £130m in unpaid taxes. But it has faced huge public and political criticism for amounting to a corporation tax of just 3%, with Italy's settlement meaning the internet giant paid 15%.

In a report by Italian finance authorities, it claims Google failed to declare around €100m of extra revenue, which would've placed it in the 27% rate of corporation tax.

Latest figures show that Google paid €2.2m in corporation tax in 2014, on profits of nearly €55m. But Italy's Communication Authority believes that Google's Italian revenues are were around 10x that figure.

On Thursday, the European Commission said it could investigate the UK's settlement with Google.
