Fair Tax Policy

We are committed to paying all the taxes that we owe in accordance with the spirit
of all tax laws that apply to our operations. We believe that paying our taxes in this
way is the clearest indication we can give of our being responsible participants in

We will fulfill our commitment to paying the appropriate taxes that we owe by
seeking to pay the right amount of tax (but no more), at the right rate, in the right
place and at the right time. We aim to do this by ensuring that we report our tax
affairs in ways that reflect the economic reality of the transactions we actually
undertake in the course of our trade.

What we will not ever do is seek to use those options made available in tax law or
the allowances and reliefs that it provides in ways that are contrary to the spirit of
the law. Nor will we undertake specific transactions with the sole or main aim of
securing tax advantages that would otherwise not be available to us based on the
reality of the trade that we undertake.

As a result the organisation will never undertake transactions that would
require notification to HM Revenue & Customs under the Disclosure of Tax
Avoidance Schemes Regulations or participate in any arrangement to which it might
be reasonable anticipated that the UK's General Anti-Abuse Rule might apply.

We believe tax havens undermine the UK's tax system. As a result whilst we will
trade with customers and suppliers genuinely located in places considered to be tax
havens we will not make use of those places to secure a tax advantage, and nor will
we take advantage of the secrecy that many such jurisdictions provide for
transactions recorded within them.

Our accounts will be prepared in compliance with this policy and will seek to provide
all that information that users, including HM Revenue & Customs, might need to
properly appraise our tax position. We will review this policy with our accountants
annually to ensure that it is complied with.
