Is Npower the new Starbucks?

At the same time as hiking our energy bills, Npower are now using accounting tricks to dodge paying their fair share of tax in the UK. Yesterday it was revealed that they haven't paid a single penny in corporation tax for the last three years! But now this is out in the open. Just look what a PR disaster it was for Starbucks when their tax affairs were exposed last year. Tax dodging scandals can ruin a company's reputation. And that can cost them their customers.

Npower rely on their customer loyalty. They must already realise that their tax scams are damaging their reputation. So let’s make them feel the strength of public opposition by signing a petition warning them that the public does not support tax dodgers!

A petition can help turn this tax dodge into a full-on PR crisis for Npower. It'll help spread the word and raise awareness of what they're up to. And it'll encourage the media to keep reporting on this scam. That's exactly what Npower's PR team don't want to happen! After Starbucks' tax scams came out, customers crossed the street to buy coffee from another cafe. Npower will already know that they’re at risk from customers switching gas and electricity providers.

The news of yet another huge company like Npower dodging tax stinks, and not just because it comes at a time when our gas and electricity bills are going through the roof. By dodging tax, Npower are actively contributing to the UK’s deficit - and to the stinging impact of government cuts. Let’s force Npower to stop using accounting tricks to dodge their fair share of tax . Sign the petition to Npower now:
