In April 2019 Ethical Consumer viewed Perrigo's family tree on the website Hoovers.com. Perrigo had many high risk company types in jurisdictions that Ethical Consumer considered to be tax havens at the time of writing, including Luxembourg and the Netherlands. The company was based in Ireland, despite being in practice a US company. The company's Annual Report was checked but it contained no country-by-country tax reporting. It thus received Ethical Consumer's worst rating for likely use of tax avoidance strategies.
