Governance in relation to UK taxation
Attitude towards tax planning and level of risk
Wain manages risks to ensure compliance with legal requirements in a manner which ensures payment of the right amount of tax.
We seek to minimise the risk of a dispute with HMRC by being open and transparent about our tax affairs. At all times we seek to fully comply with our regulatory and other obligations and to act as a responsible corporate citizen.
Relationship with HMRC
Wain seeks to have a transparent and constructive relationship with HMRC through regular meetings and communication in respect of developments in Wain’s business, current, future and retrospective tax risks, and interpretation of the law in relation to all relevant taxes.
When submitting tax computations and returns to HMRC, Wain discloses all relevant facts and identifies any transactions or issues where it considers that there is potential for the tax treatment to be uncertain.
Any inadvertent errors in submissions made to HMRC are fully disclosed as soon as reasonably practicable after they are identified.
Legal and ethical
We act lawfully and with integrity and expect the same from our people, tax authorities and other parties with whom we interact.
We support a relationship with tax authorities, based upon mutual trust and respect which will enable constructive dialogue and responsiveness by all parties.
