Tax Risk Management & Governance.

CNR’s business is large and covers many different locations. Given the scale of the business and complexity of the tax obligations, due diligence is required in the management of risks in relation to the interpretation of complex tax laws and nature of our compliance arrangements. CNR has an appropriately qualified and competent tax department who monitor, evaluate and actively manage these risks to ensure the company understands the likelihood of occurrence and the potential impact of each risk. CNR is committed to being a responsible corporate citizen, and complies with all applicable tax legislation and practice in the UK, to ensure it files all necessary tax returns on time and pays the correct amount of tax due at the correct time. The company has developed and adheres to policies and procedures to manage its tax compliance burden by matching roles and responsibilities that reflect the team’s experience and competency.


Tax Planning

The tax department supports the commercial needs of the business by ensuring CNR’s affairs are conducted in the most tax efficient manner to maximise shareholder value while remaining compliant with all relevant laws.

Relationship with HMRC

CNR engages with HMRC with honesty, integrity, respect and fairness and in the spirit of co-operative compliance. Where the company may disagree with a ruling or a decision by HMRC it will initially seek to resolve the matter through active and transparent discussions, but if CNR is unable to agree the point at dispute it is prepared to defend its position.

Senior Management Ownership

This tax strategy is aligned with the company’s Mission Statement and Code of Integrity, Business Ethics and Conduct and is approved by and owned by the board of CNR.
