As many readers of this blog will know, I am a director of the Fair Tax Mark. Today marks the launch of its Fair Tax Map and I think it has some good reason to be excited by it. For the first time, you can see what shops and other businesses in your area are Fair Tax Mark accredited.
There are nearly 1,500 shops and offices on the map, and every single one has our certified seal of approval for their corporation tax practices. There’s everything from nurseries to supermarkets, from grocers to coffee companies. You can search them now.
As the Fair Tax Mark say:
The public has been shouting loud about corporation tax avoidance for years now and there have been many great campaigns to try to address it. Some of these campaigns have recommended boycotting the baddies, but taking money away is only half the story.
We need to ensure we’re supporting those businesses doing the right thing, and the Fair Tax Mark helps you to identify who they are.
We know the public wants this positive way to tackle tax avoidance: in fact, new polling by ICM has found that 77% of UK adults would rather shop with a company which can prove it pays its fair share of corporation tax. Imagine if all of us decided to support these Fair Tax Mark companies – we’d be creating a powerful movement for a fairer economy.
The Map has support:
Give it a go.
