Pearson today publishes its second report on its taxation and financial information on a country-by-country basis for the financial year ended 31st December 2017.
The report continues Pearson’s commitment to voluntarily disclose information on the tax we pay on business profits, and the contributions we make to public finances in the countries in which we operate. Over the last five years, Pearson has paid £761m in tax on business profits around the world.
Coram Williams, chief financial officer at Pearson, said: “We believe that as a large, publicly-listed company, we have an ongoing responsibility to enhance awareness and provide transparency on our position on tax. This core belief leads us to publish our second annual guide to the tax we pay on business profits around the world - in an easily understandable and accessible format.”
