Award-winning journalists, ESG leaders and tax justice experts to speak at first Fair Tax Week events

The Fair Tax Foundation is pleased to open up registration for the first Fair Tax Week webinars, which will bring together accomplished and engaging speakers on a variety of topics related to corporation tax.

Fair Tax Week is a recognition of the businesses and organisations that are proud to promote responsible tax conduct, and a celebration of the positive contribution this makes to society. Fair Tax Week 2023 (8th – 18th June) will see businesses step forward and say what they pay with pride, and Councils declare their support for the economic contribution this makes locally.

The Week will explore the hot topics of the day – be that beneficial ownership disclosure or the need for public procurement reform. We’ll ask what is (and is not) a ‘tax haven’, and how investors could better factor tax into their ESG frameworks.

Please join us and help make Fair Tax Week 2023 the biggest and best yet.

Join our line-up of expert speakers to unpick what really defines a tax haven. Delve into the murky heart of our global economy to find out how Britain became a leading enabler of financial secrecy, why the EU’s tax haven blacklist falls short, and how researchers decide what is (and isn’t) a tax haven. We’ll also reveal the new Fair Tax Mark tax haven list.

The webinar will take place at 12pm BST on 12th June, and is to be chaired by Juliette Garside, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and deputy business editor at the Guardian. Juliette led the Guardian’s work on the Panama Papers and subsequent offshore leaks.
