Tax Strategy



Délifrance UK Ltd – Tax Strategy

The company is publishing this tax strategy as it is obliged to do under the Finance Act 2016 Schedule 19 paragraph 22 (2) because it is a wholly owned subsidiary within the Vivescia group, a Multi-National Enterprise group that meets the OECD’s Country-by-Country reporting framework.

This tax strategy is published in relation to the financial year ended 30th June 2017 and has been reviewed without amendment in relation to the financial year ended 30th June 2018.


How we manage our tax affairs

One of the core values of Vivescia is to “be genuine”.  This means knowing how to challenge ourselves while respecting others, their culture, rules and environment and we seek to apply these values throughout our business, including our approach to taxes.

The Board of Directors is responsible for the tax strategy of the Company, but delegates the day to day implementation to the Finance Director with support from both the parent company and outside experts as required.

Délifrance UK Ltd is not a particularly large or complex business but one which takes its corporate responsibility seriously.  The company does not adopt an aggressive tax planning stance, but seeks only to comply with all applicable rules and pay the correct amount of tax.

The company will actively seek the advice of experts to ensure that it understands and meets it obligations in this complex and ever-changing area, but will also conduct its relations directly with HMRC in an open and honest way in line with its core values.
