About

MTJN was set up after the Methodist Conference in 2012, in order to encourage the Methodist Church to become an internationally recognised advocate for tax justice.

MTJN has a global vision of a fairer world economy where:
• Democratically elected governments set the tax system, not transnational corporations.
• Individuals and companies alike pay their taxes.
• Automatic information exchange and beneficial ownership create complete transparency, so governments can see where they’re losing out.
• Country-by-country reporting allows governments to know who is paying tax and where, how much they’re paying and whether that reflects their scale of operations.
• Tax havens cease to exist as a result of the above.
• The Methodist Church takes on tax justice as a fundamental mission objective worldwide.

Our network includes ministers, lay staff, international partners and representatives of partner organisations including Christian Aid and the Tax Justice Network – but most importantly, it includes passionate individuals who want to make a difference. By working within the Methodist Connexion to educate, communicate and inspire, supporting tax justice campaigns and forming partnerships overseas, we hope to see the Methodist Church become a vigorous voice for change.
