Stop tax evasion

IT WAS good to see Derek Street’s letter commending ActionAid’s concerns about tax avoidance by multi-national companies in developing countries.

Christian Aid’s campaign ‘Trace the Tax’ is urging four major FSE companies – Unilever, Vodafone, TUI Travel, and Intercontinental Hotels Group – to back a new international accounting standard on country-by-country reporting as a means of preventing tax dodging.

Individuals can help the campaign – see www.christianaid.org.uk/tax
