Unite stands for responsible tax conduct

At Unite, we're transparent and consistent in reporting our tax and financial affairs to the outside world. We believe fairness is paramount to creating a shared-value ecosystem and an excellent opportunity to encourage change within the procurement industry.

Responsible tax behaviour

The Fair Tax Mark Global Multinational Business Standard accreditation is awarded to companies that:

  • pay the right amount of tax (but no more) in the right place at the right time, according to both the letter and the spirit of the law;
  • readily provide sufficient public information to enable its stakeholders to form a rounded and informed view of its beneficial ownership, tax conduct and financial presence (across the world if they are a multinational);
  • say what they pay with pride.

Unite is a catalyst for change. We recognise and celebrate responsible tax conduct because tax contributions are a vital part of our broader social and economic contribution, helping the communities in which we operate to deliver valuable public services and build infrastructure that paves the way for growth. Fair Tax accreditation is just one of the many initiatives undertaken by us to foster ethical governance.
