Cheshire West and Chester Council commits to Councils for Fair Tax declaration

At a recent Council meeting, councillors agreed to approve the Fair Tax Foundation’s Councils for Fair Tax Declaration.

The declaration commits cities, towns and districts to pursuing exemplary tax conduct in their affairs, require greater transparency from suppliers and join calls for more meaningful powers to tackle tax avoidance amongst suppliers when buying goods and services.
