Tax planning and tax risk
Tax planning is part of our overall strategy and business decision-making process, which aims to maximise sustainable stakeholder value based on a range of business activities. The business seeks to use applicable tax concessions and reliefs in line with the spirit of the legislation and will not implement or utilise tax avoidance strategies or seek to exploit ambiguity. Transactions between affiliate entities are on an arms- length-basis.
Tax risk is just one of the commercial risks to which the business is subject and management of this risk aims to ensure that the right amount of tax is paid and that HMRC reporting and disclosure requirements are met. Tax risk is managed in the same way as any other risk and if there is uncertainty over tax treatment or interpretation third party advice may be sought, and / or, have a direct dialogue with tax authorities.
Working with HMRC
We aim to have an open and transparent relationship with HMRC providing relevant information to enable HMRC to review possible tax risks in the course of their normal risk assessment procedures.
It is our intention to work collaboratively with HMRC to make fair, accurate and timely disclosures, highlighting where significant uncertainty exists in relation to tax matters. Whilst we would not take a position on our tax affairs that may create reputational risk, where disagreements arise we would seek to proactively work together to achieve early agreement on such disputed issues.
