We collect and pay significant amounts of tax each year and recognise the contribution this makes to the societies and economies in which we operate. These taxes include corporate income taxes, employment taxes (including, in some locations, collecting employee employment taxes), sales taxes, property taxes and capital taxes.
The 10 ethical principles of our Code of Business Conduct define how we strive to operate as a company. Our tax strategy is fully aligned with our Code of Business Conduct.
In all cases, we aim to calculate the right amount of tax, observing all relevant rules and regulations pertaining to that tax, and pay over to the relevant tax authority at the right time.
