Unilever Australia Tax Report
The tax we pay is an important part of our wider economic and social impact.
Our great range of products, including more than 400 brands globally, are used by 2.5 billion people a day, giving us a unique place in the lives of people all over the world. Whatever the brand, wherever it is bought, we’re working to ensure that it plays a part in helping fulfil our purpose as a business – To Make Sustainable Living Commonplace.
The tax we pay is an important part of our wider economic and social impact and plays a key role in the development of the countries we operate in. We regard it as a critical element of our commitment to grow in a sustainable, responsible and socially inclusive way.
Unilever Australia is a signatory to the Board of Taxation's Voluntary Tax Transparency code. We are proud to be part of this initiative and the role it plays in building confidence in the integrity of the Australian business tax system. Unilever Australia is also a supporter of the Business Council of Australia’s Supplier Payment Code. We believe the code will help improve the viability of small business and enhance the ability of business to create jobs.
In this report, we are pleased to provide an overview of Unilever’s global tax policy, risk and governance which we fully endorse and comply with in Australia.
