HBP’s policy is to comply with all relevant laws, rules, regulations, reporting and disclosure requirements and to pay the amounts of tax legally due. HBP manages its tax compliance in line with its core values (outlined in the introduction above.)
Tax compliance and tax risk management is fundamental to HBP. Tax matters are proactively managed by having a clear internal governance framework, together with business controls and processes. The Chief Financial Officer is responsible for management of HBP’s tax affairs as part of his overall responsibility for HBP’s financial operations and position. He is supported by HBP’s Director, Global Treasury. Tax compliance is monitored monthly as part of the monthly reporting cycle.
HBP follows a policy of continuous improvement and work is ongoing to identify and review key tax risks and to enhance tax systems and processes in support of HBP’s tax returns and compliance obligations. Risk issues are reported to HBP’s Chief Financial Officer. The Audit Committee of the HBP Board of Directors is updated quarterly. Internal systems, processes and controls are reviewed annually in coordination with the annual audit process.
Professional advice is obtained from suitably qualified external advisors where the tax treatment of specific items is uncertain. HBP’s annual Corporation Tax returns for the USA entity are prepared by internal staff and reviewed by external advisors while tax returns for HBSPE are prepared by external advisers and subsequently reviewed in house. Tax returns to be filed in the United States are reviewed for accuracy and completeness by HBP’s Controller. Returns for other countries are reviewed and approved by HBP’s Director, Global Treasury. All returns are then reviewed and approved by the Chief Financial Officer before submission to the relevant tax authority.
The Audit Committee Chairman is consulted when required, and the Audit Committee reviews an annual report on the tax affairs of HBP. Any significant tax issues arising during the year are brought to the attention of the Audit Committee separately.
HBP is committed to full compliance with all relevant tax laws and to interpret tax laws in a manner that is consistent with their intention. Tax risk is considered as part of our broader enterprise-wide risk management processes and is overseen by the Board. HBP does not engage in aggressive tax planning schemes. Our commitment to operating with integrity, combined with our approach to tax compliance results in a low level of tax risk for the Company.
Our policies and governance framework operate to ensure compliance with tax laws and regulations, both in the UK and worldwide, and to ensure that we identify and mitigate tax risks. Where uncertainty exists, we may seek appropriate external advice or engage directly with HMRC.
