Description

A panel of business representatives and corporate reputation experts discuss whether responsible tax behaviour is now driven as much by negative public opinion as by the threat of regulation. If this is the case, is public opinion thus unfairly penalising only those companies whose operations are public-facing? And is tax behaviour important in terms of the negative consquences of perceptions of “bad” behaviour, or should it be a more fundamental part of a company’s mission?
