Make Tax Fair (NI)

Prime Minister, it’s time to lift the lid on tax dodging

The global tax system is toxic and driving inequality – it helps the rich get richer by allowing some companies legally avoid paying tax. Meanwhile, it is the poor – who are landed with higher tax bills and inadequate public services – that pay the price. 

To tackle this, we need to end tax dodging. To do so, we need the Government to close loopholes that allow companies to avoid their tax bills in the UK and linked tax havens.  

We also need to lift the lid on tax dodging by making firms publish where they make profits and pay their taxes. A change in the law would stop companies artificially moving their profits to tax havens, or using loopholes and secret deals to avoid paying their fair share. And it would let the public and governments in developing countries see what’s really going on. 

In early September 2016, the UK Parliament passed an amendment which took us one step closer to bringing company taxes into the open. Now it’s time for the Government to set out when they will implement public country-by-country reporting, alongside other nations.

Sign this petition to call on Theresa May to fight extreme inequality by ending tax dodging.
