Taxes and prevention of money laundering

Taxes and prevention of money laundering

Evonik complies with all tax and anti-money laundering regulations worldwide.

Evonik is aware of its corporate responsibility to meet its tax obligations. In its worldwide operations, Evonik and its employees therefore observe the applicable national tax law at all times. In view of the diversity of local tax laws Evonik has issued internal regulations to standardize cross-border issues. These are mandatory where local tax laws are less stringent. In all other cases, employees must observe local tax laws at all times.

In addition, Evonik complies with all laws on preventing money laundering and the financing of terrorism. Money laundering involves obfuscating illegal sources of funds by introducing such funds into legal business and financial systems.

Payments to or by Evonik in cash are forbidden, except where the sums involved are negligible. All payments must comply with tax laws as well as anti-money laundering and anti-corruption regulations.
