Response to the modern slavery act 2015

The Modern Slavery Act 2015 (MSA) became law in March 2015 and is designed to tackle slavery in the UK. It consolidates previous legislation related to slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking and incorporates provisions relating to transparency in the supply chain. These provisions set out obligations for certain organisations to publish a statement relating to slavery and human trafficking in the previous financial year. Our most recent statement may be found here.

UK Tax Strategy

Wellington Management International Limited (the “Company”) operates as a responsible taxpayer and is committed to pay its fair share of tax in the UK and abroad. 

Tax Governance & Risk Management

The Tax Services department, overseen by the Tax Director and Chief Financial Officer, is the supervisory body for the tax activities of the Company and the Wellington Management Group.

The Company’s primary objective from a tax perspective is to be compliant with the letter and the spirit of all relevant tax laws, regulations and reporting requirements. We manage tax risk in such a way as to ensure that key risk areas are monitored, and material risks are minimized.

The Company aims to make timely and accurate returns whilst, at the same time, recognising legislative incentives, reliefs, and exemptions (when aligned with their intended policy objectives and the Company’s business or operational objectives). Such incentives, reliefs and exemptions may not be utilised where there is significant reputational risk or significant risk of damaging our relationship with the relevant fiscal or regulatory authorities.

Tax Planning

The Company does not engage in any form of aggressive tax planning. The Company will only engage in reasonable tax planning that is both compliant with tax laws and aligned with the Company’s commercial and economic activity. 

The Company’s intention is to pay an appropriate amount of tax according to where value is created within the normal course of commercial activity.  

Engaging with Relevant Authorities

The Company continues to engage with the relevant fiscal and regulatory authorities, including HMRC, in a professional, cooperative, and transparent manner.

If we discover instances of non-compliance in our tax affairs, we seek to resolve them with the appropriate tax authority as soon as is reasonably possible.

 *The purpose of this statement is to satisfy the UK legislative requirement for publication of a tax strategy pursuant to paragraph 16(2) Schedule 19 Finance Act 2016. This strategy is reviewed on an annual basis and is supervised and approved by the Board of the Company.
