Competition launched

The Fair Tax Mark has launched a national competition to help 25 small businesses in their fight against tax avoiders. 

Winners will receive expert advice and guidance on tax transparency and reporting and be supported towards achieving the gold standard in tax reporting – the Fair Tax Mark.

If you run a small bookshop competing against Amazon, or a coffee shop competing against Starbucks, a Fair Tax logo in your window or on your website could help communicate your difference to ordinary shoppers. 

Richard Livings of the Fair Tax Mark said: 

“We‘re very excited to be able to offer small businesses the chance to demonstrate they are good tax citizens. The issue of corporate taxation is often discussed in relation to the bad guys of business, the large multinationals failing to pay their fair share of tax. What is often overlooked is that it is the business community which is the real victim, especially smaller local firms. 

We at the Fair Tax Mark hope that by helping businesses to promote that they are happy to pay their taxes, we can enable high street shoppers to identify and support the companies that want to do the right thing.“

To enter the competition companies need to have a turnover  of below £4 million and be solely based in the UK. 


See the Fair Tax Mark website for more details.
