THE vast majority of shoppers prefer to spend their money with a business that can prove that it pays its share of corporation tax, according to research published yesterday.

Fair Tax Mark has launched a new map enabling people to find out which companies pay tax. This idea is a response to criticism of tax-avoiding transnationals such as Amazon and Starbucks.

Polling found that 77 per cent of 2,049 respondents would rather shop with a company that proves that it is responsible in tax affairs. The same proportion of people said they would prefer to be employed by a company with solid tax ethics.

Some 64 per cent of them said they would trust a business that has been awarded a Fair Tax Mark more than one without it.

Fair Tax Mark director Emily Kenway said: “Hard-working people have born the brunt of austerity measures at the same time as some multimillion-pound businesses have been avoiding paying their fair share of corporation tax.

“Businesses failing to contribute to the public purse are depriving communities across the UK of vital public services.”

The national map can be found at www.fairtaxmap.com.
