Our Approach to Tax Risk Management and Governance

Identification, mitigation and management of risks are central to our strategy. Tax risks arise due to the complexity of tax legislation and potential differences in interpretation. We have processes in place to ensure the integrity of our tax filings and tax compliance obligations in the UK and worldwide. Our tax processes are subject to the same level of internal controls, review and external audit as the rest of the business.

We continuously identify and manage risks and opportunities that could affect the achievement of our business plans and strategic objectives, our shareholder value and our reputation. Risk management and its governance thereunder is embedded in our internal controls, which are set by Management.

Our Attitude to Tax Planning and Tax Risk

We are committed to compliance with our tax obligations. We engage in tax planning that supports our business activities and that has commercial substance. We aim to ensure that our tax positions in any tax planning activity are consistent with the underlying economic consequences and relevant tax law. We seek professional advice from independent external tax advisors on matters that are technically complex.

Our policies and governance framework operate to ensure compliance with tax laws and regulations both in the UK and worldwide, and to ensure that we identify and mitigate tax risks.

Our tax affairs are managed by our Tax Officer and members of the global tax department with assistance from the entire finance organization.

The UK Boards of Directors also have oversight of the tax strategy in relation to their legal entities.

Our Approach to Dealing with HMRC

We seek to have a transparent, professional and cooperative relationship with HMRC based upon mutual trust and compliance. We strive to have regular meetings with HMRC and communicate significant developments and changes in our business. We seek to discuss any tax issues that may arise at an early stage. We aim to respond to information requests in a timely manner and that relevant information is provided to HMRC. Any inadvertent errors in submissions made to HMRC are fully disclosed as soon as reasonably practicable after they are identified.

SS&C regards its publication of this tax strategy as complying with the duty under paragraph 16(2) Schedule 19 Finance Act 2016 to publish a tax strategy.
