This is from the Fair Tax Mark website this morning:
The Fair Tax Mark is delighted to announce that the Timpson Group (which includes high street businesses Timpson, Johnsons the Cleaners, Snappy Snaps and Max Spielmann), has been accredited with the Fair Tax Mark, demonstrating their commitment to paying the right amount of tax, at the right time and in the right place. The accreditation comes at the opening of the UK’s first ever Fair Tax Fortnight, and alongside the release of new research about the public’s attitude to tax and good corporate conduct.
The accreditation of Timpson and their 2,046 stores takes the total number of certified Fair Tax Mark outlets and offices to over 6,500, They join a host of other responsible tax businesses, including Richer Sounds, AMT Coffee, The Co-op, SSE and Lush Cosmetics — who all recognise the benefit of being able to demonstrate their commitment to fair tax practices.
I am, of course, a director of the Fair Tax Mark and so I admit my bias, but I am pleased to see Timpson join the Fair Tax Mark. Company by company, it is being appreciated that being seen to pay the right amount of tax in the right place at the right time makes sense.
