I think we can guess who that is aimed at, can’t we?
The purpose of the Fair Tax Mark Criteria 2013-14 for Solely UK-based Companies is to provide organisations with a widely accepted and freely available set of criteria to guide them to achieving maximum transparency and fairness in their taxation policies, especially when it comes to the preparation of material for publication.
The solely UK-based version of the assessment tool has been designed for use by (all must apply):
UK limited companies, co-operatives and plcs. It is not suitable for sole traders and partnerships not putting accounts on public record. Nor is it suitable for limited liability partnerships where the owners pay the tax for the business and so no tax declaration is made by the organisation
Companies that are small or medium sized as defined by the Companies Act 2006
Companies that only trade from the UK
Companies that do not use tax havens (including for employee benefit trusts etc.)
Starbucks is a multinational and therefore cannot even be considered for eligibility for this Mark of Fair Tax. The stupid bastards have set the system up so that the specific companies they’re complaining about couldn’t even pay them to get the Mark if they wanted to.
