Tax Strategy

The Tax Strategy is annually approved by the Helaba Board of Managing Directors and published. The Tax Strategy is embedded in the Business Strategy as well as in the Overall Risk Strategy of Helaba. It thus constitutes a binding guideline for the enterprises belonging to the Helaba Group, which are bound to observe the Business Strategy. The regular review of the Tax Strategy for necessary updates as well as the further development of the document follows the same procedure used for the Business Strategy.

The Tax Strategy document serves as the basis for tax-related presentations/disclosures of Helaba in the relationship with third parties, for instance the "Code of Conduct" for the branch office in the UK.

The measure for safeguarding the strategic tax objectives are based on an efficient governance and organisation of the tax function in the Bank, clear rules and regulations governing tasks and responsibilities and a highly efficient internal control system for taxes.
