Modern Slavery

Modern Slavery

Introduction from the Board

This statement is made pursuant to Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”) on behalf of LKQ Group (UK) Limited, Digraph Transport Supplies Limited and LKQ (Distribution Ireland) Limited (together “LKQ UK & ROI”).

The above companies are affiliates of LKQ Corporation and part of the overall governance and compliance framework of the wider LKQ Group.

Our supply chains

LKQ UK & ROI is the largest distributor in the UK in the automotive and components sector and also operates across Ireland.

Our supply chain extends to parts manufacturers in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa. In addition to dealing with manufacturers we deal with other suppliers to support the operational and commercial aspects of our business.

Due to the complexity of our supply chain, there are often many different levels of suppliers between a distributor and the source of raw materials obtained by the manufacturers that we engage with.  We therefore require that our suppliers and manufacturers adhere to the same ethical trading principals that we adhere to.

Our policies on slavery and human trafficking

Our objective is to ensure as far as reasonably practicable that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in our own business.  We have a Code of Ethics (,  and global supplier code of conduct (, and we request our suppliers and require our employees to follow such policies. In particular, we ask our suppliers to either sign up to our Supplier Code of Conduct or confirm they have policies and procedures setting out an equivalent framework which they comply with.

Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking

As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we seek to:

  • Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains.
  • Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.
  • Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains.
  • Protect people who speak up about these issues.

Supplier adherence to our values

We have a zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking.  To encourage all those in our supply chain to comply with our policies, we have involved our Legal, Procurement, HR and Audit departments to assist the business in ensuring, as far as reasonably possible, that our supply chain adheres to the Modern Slavery Act.

We regularly review and update our standard terms and conditions, and provide training on our terms and conditions to our employees who work with our suppliers. We have sent revised terms and our Supplier Code of Conduct to our suppliers to make them aware of the standards that we expect from them.

We continue to audit suppliers in China, which we have identified to be a high-risk region. This forms an integral part of our supplier introduction process and is followed up by targeted audits.

In addition, monitoring and assessment of our suppliers is being carried out by the European Procurement Team of our parent company, LKQ Europe GmbH. to improve efficiency and to reduce risks not only in ethical, social and environmental terms, but also with regards to compliance, finance, quality, privacy and security.  This applies to all suppliers of European-based trading companies within the LKQ Group (including LKQ UK & ROI).


The process consists of two phases: the first is aimed at defining a prioritisation and identifying major risks based on ESG, compliance and financial-health risk scoring, and the second consists of a full supplier assessment.


We defined a 3-year plan, with the goal of completing the first level risk analysis on 100% of the supplier base by 2025: all suppliers will progressively be assessed using a third party platform, where risk level is related to the industry sector, the size of the company and the country where the company operates, and to the relevance of the supplier for LKQ Europe. Compliance and financial-health checks are then performed on a subset of our suppliers, selected according to our Risk Framework.


Based on the results of this first risk-level analysis, strategic or risk-relevant suppliers are requested to complete a risk and sustainability assessment registering on the third party platform (an external system for monitoring the sustainability performance of suppliers). The third party platform’s methodology covers 21 criteria across the four main topics: Environment, Labor & Human Rights (including Modern Slavery), Ethics and Sustainable Procurement Practices, and allows companies to monitor sustainability performance of their suppliers, manage supply chain risks and propose improvement plans to the suppliers themselves.


The assessment process is then completed asking suppliers additional information through a second questionnaire, to cover remaining risk areas included within our risk framework.


We are continually refreshing our compliance training activity with internal staff and carry out an annual attestation of adherence to our Code of Ethics.

UK Tax Strategy

This Tax Strategy describes the management of all UK entities within the LKQ Corporation group of companies (references to “LKQ UK” include all such UK entities). LKQ is a publicly traded (NASDAQ: LKQ) U.S. based multinational corporation, headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.

In accordance with the requirements of UK Finance Act 2016 Schedule 19, paragraph 19, Euro Car Parts Limited presents the LKQ UK’s Tax Strategy for the year ending on 31 December 2023. This tax strategy is reviewed annually.

The tax strategy is approved by the boards of Euro Car Parts Limited, LKQ UK’s principal group and holding companies, and it sets out LKQ UK’s approach to UK taxation. References to “UK tax” and “UK taxation” are to the taxes and duties in the UK, including, inter alia, corporate income taxes, indirect taxes, and employment related taxes.

Approach to risk management and governance arrangements in relation to UK taxation

The Vice President – Tax of LKQ Corporation, as LKQ’s global chief tax officer, has primary responsibility for oversight of the tax affairs of all LKQ companies. The UK tax team is part of a global tax team of professionally qualified and experienced employees.  LKQ’s global tax department is part of the finance function and reports to the LKQ Corporation Chief Financial Officer.  Additional oversight is provided by the Audit Committee of LKQ Corporation’s Board of Directors. The implementation of the UK tax strategy is the responsibility of the UK Chief Financial Officer, supported by the UK Head of Tax.

LKQ UK’s practice is to ensure compliance with UK tax laws and regulations and practices.  The overall UK tax strategy includes the following:

     • Meeting all legal requirements, filing all required tax returns, and making all required tax payments.

     • Working to identify key tax risks and managing those risks through effective controls.

     • Working with stakeholders to utilize appropriate tax incentives and reliefs that are available and legally allowable, and consistent with LKQ UK’s business objectives; and

     • Considering tax implications of business operations, including acquisitions and other investments.

LKQ is committed to uphold ethical standards in all its corporate and business activities.  LKQ’s internal Code of Ethics, published on LKQ Corporation’s website, underpins LKQ UK’s approach to UK taxation.

LKQ maintains internal policies and procedures to support its tax controls and ensure compliance with the U.S. Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the UK’s Senior Accounting Officer certification requirements.  The LKQ group tax department includes a team of professionals with appropriate qualifications and experience to identify and manage tax risk.  Other individuals within the finance function also support the tax department in identifying these risks.  The tax department recognizes that UK tax laws and practices are complex and dynamic. Advice may be sought from external professional advisors, where appropriate, to ensure that new tax laws and practices are fully understood, in relation to areas of uncertainty or with regards to a material transaction.

Attitude towards tax planning as far as it affects UK taxation

LKQ UK is committed to complying with UK tax laws, regulations and practices when meeting the commercial needs of the business. LKQ UK may utilize tax incentives or reliefs where available, legally permissible, and consistent with the business commercial objectives and operations.  Any tax incentives or reliefs are utilized in accordance with the letter and the spirit of the law and will consider any impact that such actions will have on our external reputation.

Level of risk in relation to UK taxation that the group is prepared to accept

LKQ UK’s tax strategy aligns with its business strategy and operations, and tax risks are managed in the context of substantive business transactions.  LKQ UK continuously monitors its UK operations to ensure compliance with relevant tax laws and to identify and address material tax risks.  Risks are regularly reviewed for changes in business and legislation.  LKQ UK maintains relationships with external tax professionals and seeks their advice as needed to confirm the tax department’s internal assessments of tax positions and tax risk.

Approach to dealings with HMRC

LKQ UK is committed to maintaining a transparent and constructive relationship with HMRC and seeks to work collaboratively with HMRC to explain the business, obtain certainty on tax matters and resolve disputes.  Where issues of differing tax interpretations may arise, LKQ UK will engage in proactive discussions with HMRC to bring matters to conclusion.  Where LKQ UK is unable to reach agreement with HMRC on a disputed matter, and provided its position is supported by professional advisors, LKQ UK may seek to resolve the issue through alternative methods of dispute resolution.  If inadvertent errors in tax submissions are discovered, LKQ UK’s policy is to notify HMRC as soon as reasonably practicable after such errors have been identified.


LKQ Code of Ethics

Our goal is to be the leading value-added global distributor of vehicle parts and accessories offering our customers the most comprehensive and cost-effective parts solutions while building strong partnerships with our employees and communities in which we operate.

Our code will help you find and understand the principles, standards and LKQ policies that apply in your work with LKQ. Please take time to learn the code and to understand your personal responsibilities. Finally, in addition to acting ethically yourself, if you see or hear something that does not seem right to you, please speak up. This helps us to investigate and take action before something more serious happens.

Thank you for supporting our commitment to doing business the right way.
