Why get the
Fair Tax Mark?

Responsible tax conduct is one of the biggest issues of our time

The growth of tax havens and unethical corporate tax conduct have become prominent concerns across the world. Aggressive tax avoidance negatively distorts national economies and undermines the ability of business to compete fairly, both domestically and internationally.

Recent research has found that close to 40% of multinational profits (some US$950bn) are artificially shifted to tax havens each year, leading to a US$240bn reduction in corporate tax revenue.

It is no longer enough for a business to claim that their tax conduct is acceptable as long as they are not breaking the letter of the law.

Our Fair Tax Mark accreditation scheme is the gold standard of responsible tax conduct.

It helps your business demonstrate it  pays the right amount of corporate income tax at the right time and in the right place, following both the spirit and the letter of the law.

Sought by listed PLCs, global multinationals, co-operatives, social enterprises and more, the Fair Tax Mark  shows stakeholders that your tax conduct has been independently assessed and rated by an impartial organisation. It shows you’re leading by example.

Securing Fair Tax Mark accreditation will enable your business to:

  • Instil pride in employees and increase customer confidence

  • Stand out in your sector, especially when bidding for contracts

  • Reassure investors that you are an exemplar and managing tax-related risks well

  • Win positive public and media attention for your commitment

  • Boost your brand, via enhanced CSR and ESG credentials

  • Become part of a growing network of pioneering businesses who want to lead on responsible tax practice

  • Get ahead of the curve of new tax regulations and legislation

  • Help shape the tax landscape toward a fairer future

“We are delighted to become the first company outside the UK to be accredited with the Fair Tax Mark using the new Global Multibusiness Standard.”

“We’re proud to achieved the accreditation for another year and continue to champion the Fair Tax Mark and its principles.”

“The buyers and suppliers using our platform and our partners can be confident that the ethical governance and relationships come first for us.”

“This forms a part of our wide ESG strategy, which puts community engagement and transparency at the heart of what we do.”
