"By far the greatest contribution business can make to development is through the very act of running its business - paying suppliers, paying wages, paying taxes" Graham Mackay, Chief Executive of SABMiller

We agree with Graham – so it’s time for his company to stop tax dodging.

We want the government to support developing countries in tackling tax-dodging multinationals by:

>> Putting pressure on the G20 to tackle tax havens, and make companies publish a basic set of accounts in every country in which they operate.

>> Taking responsibility for multinationals based in the UK by ensuring that Britain’s tax rules make it harder, not easier, for them to dodge taxes in developing countries.

>> Offering aid money to help them strengthen their tax authorities.What are we asking multinational companies to do?

>> Incorporate tax justice into their corporate social responsibility programme.

>> Stop the secrecy – make their affairs more transparent by publishing a basic set of accounts in every country they work in – including tax havens.
