Transparency, fairness, collaboration and excellence are key to our culture and risk governance. We aim to comply with both the letter and the spirit of the law and seek to keep our tax affairs as transparent and straightforward as possible.
RISK MANAGEMENT AND GOVERNANCE ARRANGEMENTS
Risk management is central to our day-to-day operations and defines who we are. Responsibility for the Group’s tax contribution, tax risk and governance ultimately sits with the Board and is led by the CFO, who sits on the Board. Day-to-Day responsibility sits with the Head of Tax who, supported by the wider finance team, reports to the CFO.
Departmental heads such as Finance, Operations, Compliance and Risk play a key role in identifying and managing tax risk within their own department. Department heads sit on an Operating Committee and a New Business Committee and consult the CFO and Head of Tax on a predefined basis. Internal controls and escalation procedures are in place to identify, quantify and manage tax risks.
The Group feels it is important to align our code of conduct and our approach to taxation. The Group’s tax governance framework reflects this along with the Group’s values.
The Group has a transparent and straightforward approach to tax planning. The Group works to ensure profits are aligned to the jurisdictions where economic activities take place and looks to pay the appropriate amount of tax in each jurisdiction in which it operates. In supporting genuine commercial activity the Group looks to structure its affairs in a tax efficient manner and utilise tax incentives.
Where there is a degree of uncertainty for tax positions the Group seeks expert external advice and presents to the Board for approval prior to finalising any decisions. Voluntary disclosures are made to HM Revenue & Customs ('HMRC') where relevant and financial, economic and reputational risk considered as a consequence of business decisions.
The Group has a low UK tax risk tolerance. Integrity is at the core of what we do, we do not tolerate tax evasion, nor do we tolerate the facilitation of tax evasion by any person(s) on the Group’s behalf.
RELATIONSHIP WITH HMRC
We intend to continue to engage with HMRC on a regular basis and make voluntary disclosures to HMRC that we feel are in-line with our tax governance framework. We believe in working transparently and collaboratively with HMRC and to maintain a strong working relationship together.
