  1. Strategy and Planning

 

The Company will not commit an act wholly motivated by avoiding tax with the purpose of tax avoidance. Our UK tax strategy and planning are based on bringing value to our stakeholders. We follow this principle while we assess if there are possibilities of tax efficiency to the business.

 

  1. Tax Risks

 

To mitigate the risk that the tax payments always happen before the respective deadlines, we have in place a statutory calendar, which is monitored on a regular basis. The tax payment dates are also marked.
