In compliance with the requirements of Schedule 19, Part 2 of the Finance Act 2016, Red Rock Group (“the Group”) presents the Group’s Tax Strategy for the year ending 31 December 2017. The document sets out the tax strategy and strategic tax objectives of the Group and aims to give direction to the decision makers within the Group and to keep all of our interested stakeholders informed about our approach to managing tax affairs. The Group is committed to being a responsible taxpayer: complying with tax laws and practice at all times, taking reasonable care to reduce tax risks, and paying the correct amount of tax at the right time. We recognise the importance of tax to the economy and believe that a clear and responsible tax strategy is essential to support the sustainability of our business and the growth that the Group aims to achieve in the upcoming years. The strategy applies to all of the Group companies which are incorporated within the United Kingdom. It intends to establish a clear approach to all aspects of compliance, reporting, and payment of all taxes borne and collected by the Group, the principal ones being corporate income taxes, employment taxes, and indirect taxes.
