The total turnover includes the amount derived from the provision of goods and services falling within the ordinary activities of that organisation and its subsidiary undertakings, after deducting trade discounts, value added tax and other taxes.
The Modern Slavery Act 2015 (Commencement No. 3 and Transitional Provision) Regulations 2015. which bring section 54 of the MSA into force on 29 October 2015. There is a transitional provision which provides that the requirement only applies in respect of financial years ending on or after 31 March 2016.
