Kering Denies Tax Evasion Accusations (Business of Fashion)
Kering has responded to allegations made by two newspaper claiming the luxury group used a loophole to avoid paying taxes on a significant portion of its earnings. France’s Mediapart and Germany’s Der Spiegel alleged that Kering billed a portion of their business carried out in various European countries to a Swiss site to avoid paying taxes to those countries. The newspapers report that while much of Kering’s business is carried out in Paris, Milan and London, the firm reported those activities to the Swiss region of Ticino to benefit from its low tax rate of 8 percent. Mediapart claims that Kering saved 2.5 billion euros since 2002 from this practice. Kering released a statement Friday refuting the allegations, arguing its Swiss businesses were vitally linked to the activities executed outside the country. “The group pays its due taxes in Switzerland, in compliance with the law and the fiscal status of the company. This business operating model is known by French and other competent tax authorities,” Kering said in a statement.

Two Nike Executives Resign Amid Reports of Workplace Mistreatment (The New York Times)
Two top executive have resigned at Nike in response to internal complaints of workplace misbehavior. Jayme Martin, a vice president and general manager of global categories, resigned on Friday — just 24 hours after Nike Inc’s brand President Trevor Edwards handed in his resignation. Though Nike spokesmen have yet to comment to press, an internal memo circulated after Edwards’ departure that points to the reasoning. Nike’s chief executive Mark Parker wrote in the staff memo that the company had received complaints of “conduct inconsistent with Nike’s core values and against our code of conduct.” Parker added: “Over the past few weeks, we’ve become aware of reports of behavior occurring within our organization that do not reflect our core values of inclusivity, respect and empowerment at a time when we are accelerating our transition to the next stage of growth and advancing our culture. This disturbs and saddens me.”
