Tax Power - ActionAid's campaign explained

Recent months have seen a number of high profile exposés of the schemes big-name companies such as Google, Apple and Starbucks use to cut billions off their tax bills. The news has shocked a lot of people: the huge amounts of money involved, and the brazenness of some of the manoeuvres, has caused justifiable outrage.

Tax Power is ActionAid’s response to this global scandal: a coordinated campaign across 20 countries. This campaign will serve to harness the Tax Power of people and governments by working on the local, national and international levels to bring an end to harmful tax incentives, tax avoidance of all kinds, and the tax havens and lack of transparency that make tax avoidance possible.
