It’s time to stop big companies dodging tax
Corporate tax dodging is unfair: it keeps developing countries trapped in poverty.
We all pay our tax. But companies like Amazon, Google and Starbucks can get away without paying what they owe.
And the incredible thing is that big corporations often do this legally, by taking advantage of tax rules that are currently rigged in their favour. The secrecy in the financial system is an added bonus for tax dodgers.
We can change this
Politicians can change the UK’s tax rules to ensure UK companies pay their fair share of tax - both in the UK and wherever else they operate - which includes some of the world's poorest countries.
We need to change the UK’s rules to make all companies pay their fair share. We need to make sure there is enough money available to tackle poverty in the world’s poorer countries.
