Our founder, Sukhpal Singh, started it all off in 1978 and this passion and drive is still intrinsic today in everything we do – with our attitude of ‘Whatever It Takes’. Whether this is to find the right person to join our team, to get the job done, to get an order to our customers, achieve a goal or exceed a target – we have 5 core truths that underpin this and that sit at the heart of Euro Car Parts: Putting the customer first, It’s all about the people, Being the best, Never giving up and Strive to do the right thing.

Modern Slavery

Modern Slavery

INTRODUCTION FROM THE BOARD

This statement is made pursuant to Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”) and sets out Euro Car Parts Limited (“ECP”) goal of improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.

OUR SUPPLY CHAINS

ECP is the largest distributor of car parts in the automotive and components industry in the United Kingdom.

Our supply chain includes obtaining car parts from a number of manufacturers throughout Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa. In addition to dealing with a number of manufacturers, we also deal with numerous suppliers to help 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. Therefore, it is imperative 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 that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains in so far as reasonably possible as well as within our business. We have a Modern Slavery policy and an Ethical Trading policy, and we ask our suppliers and employees to also follow such policies.

DUE DILIGENCE PROCESSES FOR SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING

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

  • Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chain
  • Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chain
  • Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chain
  • Protect whistle blower

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 are currently in the process of sending revised terms and our ethical trading policy to our suppliers to make them aware of the standards that we expect from them. It is our aim, over the next year, to extend the remit of the audits that we already conduct on our first tier suppliers in China, which we have identified to be a high risk region.

TRAINING

To promote understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we have provided face-to-face training to key members of our business who deal with our supply chain on a day to day basis. It is our aim to extend this training to all employees who deal with our supply chain so that the can easily identify instances of slavery and human trafficking.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our Group’s slavery and human trafficking statement.

LKQ is a publicly traded (NASDAQ: LKQ) U.S based multinational corporation, headquartered in Chicago, Illanois.

In compliance with the requirements of UK Finance Act 2016 Schedule 19, paragraph 19(2), LKQ Euro Limited is publishing this tax strategy for the current financial years ending on 31 December 2018 and 2019. This tax strategy is reviewed annually.

The tax strategy is approved by the board of LKQ Euro Limited, LKQ UK’s top holding company 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.

The Vice President – Tax of LKQ Corporation, as LKQ’s global chief tax officer, has primary responsibility for strategic management of the tax affairs of LKQ UK, 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 UK Senior Accounting Officer (SAO) has responsibility for the day-to-day management of UK tax matters. The SAO is assisted by a UK group tax manager.

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

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 UK tax returns, and making all required tax payments;
  • Working to identify key tax risks and managing those risks through effective controls;
  • Working with stakeholders in order 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 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. These controls are audited annually by both internal and external auditors. The LKQ group tax department includes a team of professionals with appropriate qualifications and experience to identify and manage risk. Other individuals within the finance function also support the tax department in identifying these risks. The tax department recognises that UK tax laws and practices are complex and dynamic, and therefore invests in tax training for staff. 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 material transaction.

Transactions between affiliates are conducted on an arm’s length basis to ensure the parties to intercompany transactions are appropriately remunerated.

Tax Risk

Whilst LKQ UK does not have rigid levels of acceptable tax risk, LKQ UK’s tolerance for tax risks is continually evaluated and managed to ensure LKQ UK is acting in compliance with the letter and the spirit of the law. 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, including transfer pricing guidelines, 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 departments internal assessments of tax positions and tax risk.

Relationship with HMRC

LKQ UK communicates with HMRC promptly, openly and with transparency, and seeks to work collaboratively with HMRC in order 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.
