Today we're launching a new campaign – and we need your help.
Have you ever wondered how much your local council is paying to companies with links to tax havens?
Research by The Fair Tax Foundation found that £37.5bn of public contracts were won by companies with links to tax havens between 2014 – 19 alone.

This must end.
We're demanding councils sign-up to a fair tax standard, so that no money goes to companies associated with tax havens.
Ask your council to stop buying services from tax dodging companies. It only takes 1 minute:
Local authorities can play a key role in addressing tax dodging companies. Some councils have already signed-up, but the vast majority have not.
