BT Group plc Tax Strategy
Our tax strategy sits at the heart of our business responsibility agenda. It ensures that we pay our fair share of taxes back into the societies in which we operate, and that we conduct our tax affairs ethically and with integrity.
We are proud to be a major contributor of taxes in the UK. In our financial year 2017–18, we paid corporation tax of £374m. We paid £346m of employer’s national insurance contributions for our 82,500 people in the UK, and £273m of business rates in respect of our extensive UK fixed and mobile networks, and our presence on around 600 high streets across the UK.
The One Hundred Group 2018 Total Tax Contribution Survey ranked us as the fifth highest contributor in the UK for the third year running.
