We join FTSE listed companies such as SSE Plc and Go-Ahead Group in a growing list of companies taking a stand against aggressive tax avoidance.
The Fair Tax Mark is an independent accreditation process that assesses companies’ corporation tax practices and reporting. It provides a positive method for companies to demonstrate they are doing the right thing on tax.
It was launched in response to public outrage at numerous well-known companies, such as Google and Starbucks, failing to pay the right amount of UK corporation tax. With recent government announcements showing a move to crack down on such practices, businesses joining the Fair Tax Mark are showing they are ahead of the curve.
Emily Kenway, Director of the Fair Tax Mark, said:
“We’re delighted to announce the UK’s first Fair Tax Mark certified accountancy practice. Crunchers South London is leading in its sector by taking this bold step and we firmly believe its clients will be proud to work with such an upstanding practice. Winning the Mark means Crunchers South London has committed to not abusing tax havens or tax avoidance schemes and to apply the gold standard on tax transparency. We hope its leadership will encourage many more accountancy practices to follow.”
