Via Tax Strategy

The following documents Via Transportation UK Ltd’s (“ViaVan UK’s”) strategy and approach in the UK.  Publication of this strategy statement is regarded as satisfying the UK statutory obligation under Para 22(2), Schedule 19, Finance Act 2016.  This applies for the financial year ended 31 December 2019.

Approach to UK tax risk management and governance arrangements

ViaVan UK is committed to complying with applicable tax law and regulations in the UK.  ViaVan UK is liable to a broad range of UK taxes including corporation tax, VAT, PAYE and National Insurance Contributions. ViaVan UK is committed to compliance with UK tax law, regulation and disclosure requirements by ensuring the following:

-Filing complete and accurate returns on a timely basis,
-Paying the right amount of tax at the right time,
-Disclosing all relevant facts and circumstances to HM Revenue & Customs (“HMRC”)

The Directors of ViaVan UK have ultimate responsibility for the UK tax strategy.  The Chief Executive Officer of ViaVan Technologies B.V. (the “ViaVan Group”) is ultimately responsible for ViaVan UK’s overall tax risks, while the day-to-day management of tax risks is a collaborative effort involving individuals from legal, finance and tax functions within the ViaVan Group.  

There may be instances where we face uncertainty as to the interpretation and application of certain tax laws.  In these cases, we seek appropriate external tax advice with respect to the interpretation of the tax law and regulations.

Attitude towards tax planning

ViaVan UK complies with all tax rules and regulations and where appropriate engages in tax planning that is aligned with its commercial business activities.  ViaVan UK carries out related party transactions following the arm’s length standard and aligns with ViaVan UK’s commercial business activities in the UK.  As part of our overall Finance and Tax responsibilities, we work with our business and operations teams to ensure the appropriate tax analysis and considerations are undertaken for relevant business decisions.   Additionally, any tax planning undertaken in the UK is done so with specific regard to the potential impact on ViaVan UK’s reputation and broader goals and, where appropriate, external tax advice is taken.

Level of tax risk that we are prepared to accept

ViaVan UK takes a responsible approach to managing its tax affairs and strives to be compliant with all UK tax laws and regulations.  Our tax positions in the UK reflect the business activities undertaken in the UK.  We are not prescriptive in terms of the levels of acceptable risk, however, we comply with legal requirements in a manner that ensures we pay the required amount of tax.  

Approach to dealing with HMRC

ViaVan UK is committed to acting with integrity and transparency with all tax authorities, including HMRC.  ViaVan UK seeks to have a professional and constructive relationship with HMRC.  We file timely and accurate tax returns, and we respond openly and promptly to any questions that may be raised by HMRC in relation to the tax returns.  In situations in which a disagreement may arise, we look to work collaboratively with HMRC to resolve issues where possible.
