Barclays is getting its hands dirty by promoting tax havens to its clients in Africa.
When companies don’t pay their fair share of tax, this can deny some of the world’s poorest people access to vital funds for schools and hospitals.
What should Barclays do?
Barclays have an entire division dedicated to helping big businesses in Africa set up offshore.
Antony Jenkins, Barclays’ chief executive, is personally responsible for cleaning up Barclays’ image, so we’re challenging him to scrub up the bank’s act on tax havens by closing down Barclays Offshore Corporate division and by publishing a credible plan for closing down the rest of the bank's tax haven operations.
