We recently revealed that, unless things change, the richest 1% will own more than the rest of the world combined - by 2016. If we're going to Even It Up, we've got to make some changes. Big changes. And it starts with tax.
Together we can end corporate tax dodging
Right now, big companies can dodge billions in taxes. Meanwhile, the world's poorest countries lose out on funds that could pay for vital services like education and healthcare - crucial in tackling extreme poverty. We miss out on billions right here in the UK too.
With a general election coming up, there's an opportunity to create real change. That's why we've joined a coalition of organisations calling on all UK political parties to introduce a Tax Dodging Bill within 100 days of the election that:
- Makes it harder for big companies to dodge UK taxes and ensure they're not getting unfair tax breaks
- Ensures UK tax rules don't encourage big companies to avoid tax in developing countries
- Makes the UK tax regime more transparent and tougher on tax dodging
Let's end corporate tax dodging.
