C3is Inc. (“C3is”) is committed to high standards of corporate governance, transparency and responsibility. This document outlines C3is’ global approach to taxation. C3is’ global tax strategy applies to all of its controlled entities. This tax strategy and its underlying principles guide the decisions C3is makes relating to corporate tax matters.
Governance of tax matters is overseen by the Board of Directors. Where appropriate, tax risks are escalated to the Board for review and tax decisions are presented to the Board for endorsement. Our tax governance framework ensures that controls are in place to monitor and enforce tax governance rules and procedures at all levels of our organization.
C3is is committed to observing all applicable laws, rules and regulations in meeting its tax compliance and reporting responsibilities in all jurisdictions where it operates, and to ensure compliance with all relevant legal disclosure requirements. C3is applies diligent professional care and judgment, including ensuring that all decisions are taken at an appropriate level and are supported by consistent processes and guidelines and thorough documentation.
C3is undertakes tax planning that aligns with its commercial business activities and reputation as a responsible corporate citizen. C3is strives to ensure that any structure or transactions are done to support the business strategy, and, as such, all decisions will have a sound commercial rationale, will be compliant with tax laws and regulations, and will be considered in light of any impact such planning could have on C3is’ external reputation. C3is seeks appropriate clarification from external advisors and/or governmental authorities, wherever appropriate.
We are committed to a collaborative and transparent approach to tax compliance and tax planning, including in our relationships with tax authorities. We publish a list of all of our principal subsidiaries in our annual Form 20-F filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
