11. UK TAX STRATEGY
This tax policy applies to Carhartt UK Limited a subsidiary of Carhartt Holdings B.V. and a member of the Carhartt Inc. & Subsidiaries Controlled Group. Carhartt UK Limited regards this policy as complying with their duty under paragraphs 19(2) and 22(2) of Schedule 19 Finance Act 2016 to publish a tax strategy and is applicable for the financial year ending July 2nd, 2022.
1. Our approach to UK tax risk management
The UK tax strategy conforms with the Group’s Code of Conduct and is owned and approved by Carhartt Management and overseen by the Carhartt Board of Directors. The day-to-day implementation of the tax strategy is delegated to the Global Tax Director, who is supported by the EMEA Controller and finance team.
The Company ensures that proper books and records are maintained to prepare its statutory accounts in accordance with UK Generally Accepted Accounting Practice and the required tax filings. We are committed to compliance with UK tax laws and practices. We continuously monitor changes to tax legislation, ensuring that we take advice where appropriate from professional advisers.
We seek to identify, evaluate, monitor and manage tax risks to ensure that we comply in full with our legal obligations. It is inevitable that risks may arise with respect to the application of tax laws that are complex and uncertain at times. While we do not have prescriptive levels of tax risk, we routinely seek professional advice where the application of tax law to a material transaction or a given situation is reasonably unclear or uncertain, or where specialist knowledge is required. Advisory and technical tax support is provided by a combination of large accounting firms, various legal firms, and by other smaller firms with the required skills. We are committed to comply with tax legislation in the jurisdictions in which we do business. This means that for material transactions where there is uncertainty arising from the application of complex tax laws, we will adopt a tax position that is more likely than not to be upheld by the tax authorities and/or the Courts. We undertake to manage taxes with the objective that all tax liabilities properly due under the law are correctly recorded and paid.
2. Tax planning
In supporting the operational needs of the business, we take into account tax laws (as well as all other relevant matters) in all countries in which we operate. Factors that are considered include potential incentives and reliefs. Where legally possible, we will seek to take positive steps to eliminate the risk of double taxation. Any such action is done in a way that is aligned with the group’s operational objectives, meets our legal obligations, and takes into account the potential impact on our reputation.
We seek to comply with all relevant laws, including the OECD arm's length standard in relation to transfer pricing.
3. How our business works with Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and other tax authorities When engaging with HMRC and other tax authorities, we approach them with honesty, respect, and transparency. Where possible and appropriate, we engage with the tax authorities to discuss developments in the business, tax risks and the interpretation of the law. We seek to build and sustain relationships with tax authorities that are constructive and based on mutual respect. For any disputes with tax authorities, we work to resolve the dispute by means of transparent discussions and working collaboratively. If such discussions do not lead to a result that is acceptable for both parties, we are prepared to litigate to resolve the dispute.
