12.1. The approach of Essilor group to risk management and governance arrangements in relation to UK taxation

For its operations in the UK as well as worldwide, Essilor endeavors to comply with all applicable laws and regulations and expects its directors, officers, and employees to conduct business in accordance with the letter, spirit, and intent of all relevant laws and to refrain from any illegal, dishonest, or unethical conduct.

This includes acting in collaboration with local administration and establishing a proper harmonization of the tax practices followed by all the entities of the Group. Our guidelines’ goal is to include responsible tax risk management in the Group’s business framework, as an essential element of our economic and social contribution to society.

12.2. The attitude of the group towards tax planning (so far as affecting UK taxation)

Essilor considers that paying the due and fair amount of taxes as calculated with reference to existing laws and transfer pricing principles is an important element of its strategy and a way to nurture its social and economic contribution to society. Essilor commits to pay all its required taxes in the countries where it operates. The Group is also committed to refrain from engaging in aggressive tax planning strategies.

12.3. The level of risk in relation to UK taxation that the group is prepared to accept

The level of risk in relation to UK taxation results from the change of tax laws which occur every year. This statement is not only valid for the UK but also for all other jurisdictions where Essilor operates. To limit the risk of infringement or inadequate application of tax laws, Essilor maintains proper and effective internal control systems, tax processes and qualified personnel to allow our tax/finance teams to ensure compliance with the principles contained in these guidelines.

12.4. The approach of the group towards its dealing with HMRC

Essilor is committed to keeping a reciprocal and cooperative relationship with the tax authorities in the countries where it operates. The Group’s tax policy is based on the principles of respect of the law and transparency. This commitment is valid for dealings with HMRC.



This policy supports our commitment to limiting the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking occurring within our own business or infiltrating our supply chains or any other business relationship. At the Group level, Essilor is a signatory to the UN Global Compact's 10 Principles in the areas of core values relating to Human Rights, labour, the Environment and anti-corruption.
