Far too many large companies manage to avoid paying their fair share of tax. This means that there isn't a level playing field for all companies. This must change.
Newspaper headlines are full of stories of the latest tax scandal. Over the last decade, the biggest tech giants had a tax gap of $100 billion.
We’re campaigning for a fairer way of taxing big companies.
The government must crack down on tax dodging and introduce a higher rate of corporation tax.
Tax avoidance is almost universally disliked by the public and they want to see it tackled. Politicians should close loopholes that allow companies to slash their tax bills.
There is some good news. Since the financial crisis, tax justice campaigners have put the issue of tax dodging on the political agenda.
Corporate behaviour is changing. Governments have introduced measures to tackle tax avoidance.

There’s so much more to be done. We will continue to fight for a fairer tax system, where all companies pay their way.
