Fraud notice

We are asking suppliers and partners to be alert to fraudulent activities such as invoice or “purchase order” fraud.

Criminals can use the names of engineering consultancies to secure goods from unsuspecting companies who believe they are dealing with reputable organisations.

Tax strategy


We recognise that paying taxes arising from our activities is an important part of how our business contributes to the societies in which we operate.

Tax management

The Director has overall responsibility for all tax matters.

The approach to managing tax is to be integral to the wider business whilst ensuring we remain compliant with all relevant laws in the countries in which we operate.

There are two key areas in which the strategy is delivered:

1. Tax compliance

In delivering Permanent Rail Engineering’s tax compliance requirements, we aim to pay all the tax we are legally obliged to pay, when it becomes payable. We disclose to tax authorities, in a timely manner, any inadvertent errors or omissions in tax returns or underpayments.

2. Tax planning

The attitude to tax planning is guided by Permanent Rail Engineering’s core values, which result in avoiding aggressive interpretation of tax laws. Where relevant, Permanent Rail Engineering utilises legitimate tax incentives offered by governments.

Use of external advisors

Permanent Rail Engineering uses external advisers to provide tax technical expertise and additional resource based on an assessment of risk and requirements.

Relationship with tax authorities

The Director manages the relationships with tax authorities where Permanent Rail Engineering has a presence. Permanent Rail Engineering is committed to being open, transparent and proactive in our dealings with the authorities.

We seek to resolve issues with tax authorities in an open, collaborative and professional manner.
