Our commitment to conducting business with integrity and to the highest standards of corporate governance is demonstrated in how we abide by our core values. The Archvision Workgroup Code of Business Conduct is the road map that helps us to stay on course with these values. The code also governs our approach to accounting, reporting, taxation and disclosure matters.
Our tax principles govern how we approach our tax obligations in Nigeria. These principles are aligned with our core values which guide every action and every decision we take in our business. They relate to such areas as tax planning, dealing with tax authorities and the level of tax risk we are prepared to accept.
The tax principles we adhere to are outlined below:
We adhere to relevant tax laws and we seek to minimise the risk of uncertainty or disputes.
We will not enter into artificial or abusive arrangements for the purpose of achieving a tax advantage.
We seek to build and sustain relationships with government and tax authorities that are constructive and based on mutual respect.
We seek to be treated as a taxpayer like any other, and we do not try to obtain preferential treatment in tax rulings or settlements.
To ensure we meet high professional standards, we will always co-operate fully in an open and honest manner with tax authorities.
We work collaboratively wherever possible with tax authorities to resolve disputes and to achieve early agreement and certainty and we co-operate with them to mitigate current and future tax risks.
Tax laws can be complex, and occasionally there are differences of interpretation or areas of uncertainty. If challenged, we will defend our tax positions, and will engage professional advisers to assist, when appropriate.
