Petition the UK government over its proposed new tax loopholes for big business

Our friends at Action Aid have launched an urgent petition against the UK government's plans to allow big businesses to dodge even more tax through tax havens.

The government plans to open a new tax loophole, making it much easier for big businesses to dodge their taxes. This could cost poor countries £4 billion and the Treasury’s own estimates put the loss to the UK at £1 billion.

You can stop a new tax loophole costing poor countries billions if you take urgent action before the UK budget is announced on 21 March.

Because when companies pay less, ordinary people around the world pay more.

The new loophole will be debated in parliament, which means that your MP has a key role to play in making the government change its plans. Petition your MP here.
