Modern Slavery and Trafficking Statement


Introduction

This statement sets out the steps Specialist Leisure Group has taken to prevent acts of modern slavery and human trafficking from occurring in its business and supply chain. This statement relates to actions and activities during the financial year 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2017.
The organisation recognises that it has a responsibility to take a robust approach to slavery and human trafficking. We are absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in our corporate activities, and to ensuring that our supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking. 

Organisation 

Specialist Leisure Group (comprising of Shearings Hotels ltd, National Holidays ltd, and Shearings ltd)  is a British hotel and leisure travel company specialising in escorted tours, short breaks, events and river cruises throughout the UK, Europe and worldwide. The Group has a diverse portfolio of owned and managed UK hotels and a collection of sector leading travel brands that offer holidays by coach, rail, river and air. 
Our business depends on a reliable network of suppliers for services and products such as venues, hotels, transport, food and retail, in the UK and internationally. 
To minimise the risk of slavery and human trafficking we:
• Contract large chains of hoteliers or accommodation services who are sourced via destination management companies, agents and inbound tour operators based in these destinations.
• Send risk assessment questionnaires to 3rd party operators reviewing health and safety. These have been adapted to include questions of slavery and human trafficking. 
• Source services and parts overseas through reputable dealers.
• Undertake an interview and assessment process where practicable before contracts are entered into.
• Enter into food contracts through key suppliers; including requests to see their policies and statements regarding modern slavery and human trafficking.

Due diligence

We undertake due diligence when considering taking on new suppliers, and regularly review our existing suppliers. We are committed to ensuring that our suppliers adhere to the highest standards of ethics. Suppliers are required to demonstrate that they provide safe working conditions where necessary, treat workers with dignity and respect, and act ethically and within the law in their use of labour.


Our policies

The Whistleblowing Policy encourages all its workers, customers and other business partners to report any concerns related to the direct activities, or the supply chains of, the organisation. This includes any circumstances that may give rise to an enhanced risk of slavery or human trafficking. The organisation's whistleblowing procedure is designed to make it easy for workers to make disclosures, without fear of retaliation. 
Our Employee Code of Conduct makes clear to employees the actions and behaviour expected of them when representing the organisation. We strive to maintain the highest standards of employee conduct and ethical behaviour when operating abroad and managing its supply chain.
We use only specified, reputable employment agencies to source labour and always verify the practices of any new agency we are using before accepting workers from that agency. All agencies are vetted by the Group’s HR department.
Serious violations of the organisation's Supplier Code of Conduct will lead to the termination of the business relationship.

Training and performance indicators 

The organisation has reviewed its key performance indicators (KPIs) in light of the introduction of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. As a result we require those involved in the supply chain to complete training to ensure understanding of the basic principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business. We are also evaluating all existing suppliers.
This statement has been approved by the organisation's executive committee and is for the year to 31 December 2019, pursuant to section 54 (1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

Tax Strategy

Shearings Leisure Group Limited (“SLG”) is a British hotel and leisure travel company specialising in escorted tours, short breaks, events and river cruises throughout the UK, Europe and worldwide. The Group has a diverse portfolio of owned and managed UK hotels and a collection of sector leading travel brands that offer holidays by coach, rail, river and air.

This Tax Strategy is published by SLG in respect of all UK entities within the Group.  The strategy has been approved by the board of directors, and will be subject to periodic review, and amended where appropriate.

GOVERNANCE & RISK MANAGEMENT

To ensure compliance with relevant tax laws and to minimise errors within our tax reporting, SLG has implemented procedures in relation to taxation, which are managed by appropriately trained individuals within our Finance and Human Resources teams, under the control of the CFO, who has ultimate responsibility for the management of the SLG tax strategy.

Given the nature of our business, tax risks will inherently arise during the delivery of our commercial activities.  Where there is uncertainty on the correct approach to be taken, we engage with professional advisors to mitigate these risks. Where material tax uncertainties arise, these are raised and discussed at Board level.

OUR APPROACH TO TAX

SLG’s approach to tax is to adopt a low risk strategy which is based on being compliant with our tax reporting requirements and paying the right amount of tax in accordance with the relevant laws and regulations, taking advantage of government offered reliefs and allowances. We will not enter into transactions that are not based on our commercial objectives.

ENGAGEMENT WITH HMRC

SLG seeks to maintain an open and honest relationship with tax authorities, meeting with HMRC on a regular basis to discuss tax.

Where there is uncertainty on taxation matters, SLG engage with professional advisors for advice on the correct approach for tax, and where appropriate, engage with HMRC to gain certainty on the approach taken on a real time basis.

This tax strategy has been published in accordance with Schedule 19 of the Finance Act 2016.
24th December 2018.
