AlphaTheta EMEA Limited (“ATE”) is committed to the highest standards of ethics and honesty and we operate a zero-tolerance approach to tax evasion and the facilitation of tax evasion.
Tax evasion occurs when individuals or businesses deliberately omit, conceal or misrepresent information to reduce their tax liabilities. Organisations can be used by associated individuals or businesses to facilitate taxpayer evasion in the UK or overseas.
ATE is committed to preventing the facilitation of tax evasion by associated individuals or businesses anywhere within its operations. We do this through the development of reasonable prevention procedures, carrying out regular due diligence and risk assessments of our activities and creating awareness and a culture of compliance throughout ATE.
