Abstract: Corporate responsibility (CR) decisions, like any other aspect of business, are driven ultimately by a company’s obligation to secure strong returns for its shareholders. The adoption of a new issue within a company’s CR agenda therefore depends on the recognition of a business case, usually focused on risk minimisation, by a company’s management and investors. With this in mind, a growing number of businesses and investors are concluding that there is a business case for viewing tax planning through a CR lens. Drivers include the increase in public scrutiny of corporate tax avoidance, and a renewed effort to tackle tax avoidance by revenue authorities in developing and developed countries.
