The Fair Tax mark accreditation awarded to Affinity Water

Affinity Water has for another year gained independent recognition that it pays the right amount of corporation tax.

The Fair Tax Foundation has used social media to congratulate the Company’s high standards and for a fifth year in a row awarded it the Fair Tax Mark accreditation.

It has used its Twitter account @FairTaxMark to make the announcement:

“We’re happy to announce that @AffinityWater have achieved the #FairTaxMark once again. Providing on average 950 million litres of water each day to 3.8 million people, they’re the largest water-only supplier in the UK.”

The Fair Tax Foundation is an independent, not for profit community benefit society. The certification scheme was launched in 2014 and seeks to encourage and recognise organisations that pay the right amount of corporation tax, at the right time and in the right place.

Michael Blake, Interim Chief Financial Officer, Affinity Water, said:

“With newspaper headlines focusing on the cost-of-living crisis that many of our customers are facing it is a very important time to be awarded the Fair Tax Mark certification. This is the fifth year in a row that Affinity Water has met the high standards to achieve this accreditation. We want our customers to know that as the UK’s largest water only company supplying 3.8 million customers in the South East of England, that we pay our fair share of tax and that our shareholders are fully supportive of this work.

“Affinity Water has shown that it is willing to be totally transparent about how we are governed and how our tax affairs are arranged. All our activities are fully taxable in the UK. If customers are struggling to pay they are advised to visit our website to find out how they may be able to receive support with paying their bills: https://www.affinitywater.co.uk/billing/struggling-to-pay.
