As year-end is approaching, many multinationals take this opportunity to review, and revise accordingly, their global tax policies/principles.  Additionally, UK also has an requirement to publish the company’s UK tax principles, which is usually a subset of the global policy.

Examples include Unilever, Siemens Gamesa, Siemens, Shell, Mars and Starbucks, which are all in the public domain.
