IG Design Group plc (“Design Group”) maintains a detailed policy reflecting our ‘code of conduct’ in respect of taxation. This policy details our approach to taxation globally and the principles which we apply. The policy is updated annually and will next be updated in June 2017, at which time it will be amended to address the specific requirements of the Finance (No 2) Bill 2016. The key principles of the policy are summarised as follows:
Responsibility for adhering to this policy sits with the Group CFO on behalf of the Board, supported by the Group Financial Controller. Finance Directors in individual business units are in turn responsible for dealing with taxation matters in their own jurisdictions in accordance with the Group’s policy. Adherence to the policy is monitored by the central group team and the Audit Committee.
