Welcome to the 2019 Barclays Country Snapshot.
Transparency remains high on our agenda and tax continues to be an important issue for our stakeholders. This is our seventh annual report containing an overview of our tax contribution country by country as well as our broader approach to tax including our UK tax strategy.
Barclays continues to make substantial tax payments across the jurisdictions in which we operate. In 2019, PwC conducted their most recent Total Tax Contribution survey of The One Hundred Group (100 Group) which represents members of the FTSE 100 along with several large UK private companies. This survey ranked Barclays as the fourth largest UK taxpayer, in terms of taxes paid. We have been ranked as one of the top four largest UK taxpayers in each of the last six years.
Published alongside the County Snapshot is a list of the main entities that Barclays operates around the world and which together contribute over 90% of the Group’s turnover. The link to this document is below.
