The approach of the group towards its dealings with HMRC
Ford’s approach to dealing with HMRC is to maintain an open, professional and transparent relationship in relation to tax planning, compliance, strategy, risks and significant transactions. Ford commits to make full and accurate disclosures in tax returns and in correspondence with HMRC. The Group shall co-operate with HMRC at all times and deal with issues in a timely and collaborative manner.
Ford shall comply with its legal obligations and interpret legislation in a reasonable way that is aligned with the intentions of Parliament. Where genuine differences of opinion occur on the application of tax law, Ford will first seek to resolve these with HMRC through open dialogue and with reference to the relevant legislation and case law.
