Provide COVID19 financial assistance only to companies paying UK corporation tax

Petition Details

COVID19 is a terrible thing to happen to the world, but it also gives us a chance to work together and shine a spotlight on corporate greed.

We rarely get a chance to hold big corporations to account & many of the nations biggest tax avoiders will ask the UK government for financial help

Additional Information

For many years, successive governments have been trying to counter corporate tax avoidance by unscrupulous companies that move their profits offshore.

Despite government attempts, the biggest avoiders continue to avoid.

The government has recently announced measures to prop up businesses that will be most affected by COVID19, but should companies that pay no tax in the UK get propped up?

It is vital that the employees of those companies are protected, but not the companies themselves.
