Skincare Research Update: ‘Boots’ billion pound tax dodge’ by The Good Shopping Guide | Jun 12, 2014 | Ethical Shopping Blog | 0 comments Another day, another tax-avoider! Our recent update into the ethics of the companies behind your favourite Skincare brands unearthed some interesting information about Alliance Boots, which has allegedly avoided more than £1 billion in tax since it went private six years ago. According to a report published by War on Want, Unite the Union and Change to Win, the company has taken on excessive debts, profit shifting and corporate restructuring in a bid to avoid tax. At a time when Alliance Boots is trying to sell additional services to the NHS, the lost tax revenue from the company has tangible effects on the British public. So as recommended by The Good Shopping Guide, please ‘AVOID’ Boots products and instead ‘BUY’ from one of the more ethical alternatives.
