Tax risks and management of tax risks

The company seeks to achieve those objectives by implementing its strategies in the most tax efficient manner whilst complying with all applicable tax laws. Tax consideration is given to all commercial and non-commercial activities of the business. The company does not engage in any artificial transactions designed to reduce tax liabilities. By application of the correct tax treatment to all its financial transactions, the company has a commitment to pay the correct amount of tax by the due dates whilst taking advantage of all available tax reliefs to minimise its tax liabilities.
Working with HMRC
The company is committed to working closely with HMRC to ensure that HMRC consider the business to be low risk in its management of all taxes applicable to the business.
