Arval UK’s Stance on Tax Evasion
Arval UK has a zero tolerance approach to all forms of tax evasion, including its facilitation, whether under UK law or under the law of any foreign country. We are fully committed to complying with all applicable legislation and guidelines designed to prevent tax evasion.
Arval UK are committed to acting professionally, honestly and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships wherever we operate. We expect that business should be conducted in a manner such that the opportunity for facilitating tax evasion is prevented wherever possible.
How Arval UK achieves this
Arval UK implements and enforces effective systems and controls to counter the facilitation of tax evasion. This includes maintaining prevention procedures aimed at ensuring our associated persons do not criminally facilitate tax evasion.
We also conduct risk assessments in order to assess the risk of associated persons criminally facilitating tax evasion, and to ensure the adequacy and reasonableness of our prevention procedures. As part of our preventative procedures, Arval UK undertakes risk-based due diligence on its third parties.
Our expectations of our customers, suppliers and other business partners
Our customers, suppliers or any other business partner that we may deal with should take note of our zero tolerance approach on tax evasion. We intend only to deal with third parties who are tax compliant and under no circumstances will we knowingly facilitate tax evasion.
We therefore expect assistance from our third parties with the completion of our due diligence.
