Complex tax regimes are one of the greatest burdens on international business.

We campaign for transparent and competitive corporate taxation in the UK and elsewhere. We are pressing for an approach to the taxation of Controlled Foreign Corporations that will boost the attractiveness of the UK economy.

 We are monitoring the growing pressure to limit companies’ freedom to allocate their tax deductible costs to different operations around the world.
