The Fair Tax Mark is a certification scheme launched in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2014 and seeks to encourage and recognise organisations that pay the right amount of corporation tax at the right time and in the right place. The project is now developing a new suite of international standards, which would enable the Fair Tax certification of businesses that have their ultimate holding company situated outside of the UK.

On 2 July 2020, the Fair Tax Mark has published ‘The Essential Elements of Global Corporate Standards for Responsible Tax Conduct’ – which tracks and analyses the many responsible tax initiatives that are now in play across the world, with a view to influencing and guiding its internationalisation. Analysis is centred on corporate income tax and related measures designed to tackle its avoidance.

The Fair Tax Mark is seeking public feedback in two ways:

  • Structured questions in an online questionnaire
