The Fair Tax Mark

Over 50 organisations have now
been accredited with a Fair Tax Mark.
From FTSE100 companies to SMEs,
from the high street to heavy industry.

 
 

2019: A great year

2019 was Fair Tax Mark’s most impactful year yet. We realised a number of landmarks, making it a year for both growth and innovation.

 

Richer Sounds

“Honesty and transparency, when it comes to
declaring how much tax we pay and paying the
amount we owe, is key to being an ethical retailer.”
Julie Abraham, Senior Director

 

Timpson Group

“Not only is this the right thing to do, but it makes business sense too; more people want to shop with and work for Fair Tax organisations, so accreditation makes perfect sense.”
James Timpson, Chief Executive

 

Leeds Building Society

“We’re proud to be the first national high-street
financial institution to achieve the Fair Tax Mark.
We aim to pay the right amount of tax, at the right time,
in compliance with the spirit, as well as the letter, of the law”
Richard Fearon, Deputy Chief Executive Officer

 

SSE

“There has been an erosion of trust between big business and the customers they serve. That’s why it’s so important to have a third party accredit us for tax disclosure.”
Gregor Alexander, Finance Director

 

United Utilities

"We are constantly looking at ways
to further improve the communication
and transparency of our approach to tax.”
Russ Houlden, Chief Financial Officer

Tax matters. It helps to fund vital public goods and services from education, health and social care, to flood defence, roads, policing and defence.

The Fair Tax Mark certification scheme was launched in February 2014 and seeks to encourage and recognise organisations that pay the right amount of corporation tax at the right time and in the right place. We operate as a not-for-profit social enterprise and believe that companies paying tax responsibly should be celebrated, and any race to the bottom resisted.

To date, we have focussed on certifying businesses head-quartered in the UK, but a suite of global standards will be rolled out in 2021.
