Tax dodging by big business has become big news, but it's not just the UK that's losing out. Developing countries lose 3 times more to tax havens than they receive in aid each year.

There's over $20 trillion stashed in offshore tax havens… How does big business manage to avoid taxes and how do they get away with it? If you’re curious about the answers to these questions, this walking tour is for you.

From Piccadilly to Bond Street, we’ll be touring a selection of the 98 FTSE 100 companies routinely using tax havens, exploring the history of tax justice campaigning in the UK and taking a look at widening global inequality. Although tax dodging is a huge problem, the campaign has already made great progress and we’ll be taking a look at what more can be done.

You don't need any specialist knowledge for this tour. So whether you’re a well versed tax sleuth or just interested in stopping big business dodge their taxes, this tour is for you. Book your space from just £2.50.

ActionAid has launched a regular walking tour of Mayfair which explains the different ways in which the UK has been involved in tax dodging or helping to provide services that can be used by tax dodgers. Tax dodging is entirely legal – but deprives some of the poorest countries of hundreds of millions of pounds of lost revenue every year.
