When everyone contributes their fair share of tax, we all benefit.

Roads are built, children can go to school, and medical care is available to everyone who needs it. But some rich multinationals are turning their backs on our communities by dodging tax. And the consequences are harshest for the world's poorest people.

Just like in Australia, governments in developing countries need tax revenue to pay for essential public services like healthcare, education and clean water for everyone. But when multinationals don’t pay their fair share of tax, they make it much harder for developing countries to build stronger and healthier communities.

Globally, tax dodging multinationals are stealing $172 billion from developing countries every year. Australian-based multinationals are responsible for $2.3 billion of this staggering figure.

When multinationals contribute their fair share of tax, people living in poverty have a better chance to build a better future – for themselves and their families. The Australian Government has the power to make multinationals pay tax and help prevent extreme inequality from spiralling out of control. 

It would be small change for rich multinationals. But it would make a big difference for people in the world’s poorest places. 

UPDATE:

The Labor Party has committed to make large multinationals’ tax affairs public for every country they operate in. The announcement requiring public reporting on all Australian-based companies with a turnover above $1 billion would make Australia a world leader in tackling the tax dodging by multinationals.

Join us in calling on the Government to follow Labor’s lead and commit to making tax transparent at home and abroad.


This campaign is part of a global movement of over 300,000 people calling on their government to Make Tax Fair.
