SHV believes its obligation as a responsible taxpayer is to comply with the tax legislation of the countries in which it operates and pay the right amount of tax at the right time. SHV does not only comply with the letter of the law, but also with its spirit.
In line with this commitment, we embrace the unique Tax Governance Code, presented by the Confederation of Netherlands Industry and Employers (VNO-NCW) on 18 May 2022, together with 40 other major Dutch multinationals. With the new Tax Governance Code, a next step has been taken towards more transparency regarding taxes.
This contributes to a better dialogue about taxes and could help re-establish trust.
