Where We Are Today

In Britain today, 6.7M people are in financial difficulty and 14.4M people live in poverty of which 4.2M are children. The national debt currently stands at 2.975TN, increasing by £5,170 per second. The interest on our national debt is 116BN and we pay a further £69BN to the MOD which combined equates to £6,560 per UK household for interest on money from thin air to partly fund wars of aggression.


Over two million people took to the streets of London in 2003 to protest the impending war with Iraq, a war that cost £8.46 billion and led to the death of 675,000-1M people. Afghanistan cost the taxpayer a further £21.3 billion - a figure which includes VAT!


The reasons given for these acts of aggression were based on lies. The actions carried out were war crimes for which to date nobody has been held accountable. Since WWII Britain has been complicit in the deaths of over 8M people and cost the taxpayer £1.2TN.

How does this affect business?


Under international law the use of armed force is only lawful when a State is under attack by the armed forces of another State and needs to defend itself and repel its attackers. All other forms of war are illegal.

The International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism (1999) which has been ratified into UK Law states that:

‘Any person commits an offence, if that person by any means, directly or indirectly, unlawfully and wilfully, provides or collects funds in the knowledge that they are to be used, in full or in part, in order to carry out any act intended to cause death or serious bodily injury to any other person when the purpose of such act is to intimidate a population…’

If a taxpayer gives money to a tax collector such as a council, HMRC, the DVLA or a business charging VAT knowing that some of it will be passed to the Ministry of Defence to fund wars of aggression, he or she may be found guilty of acting unlawfully. With the current UK government unwilling to reveal ongoing advice from lawyers, and multiple NGOs, lawyers, civil servants, judges, charities and even those working for arms companies – already voicing their concerns and refusing to be complicit – the responsibility of ethical taxation lies solely at the door of the taxpayer.

What Can I Do?


Successive governments have consistently breached international and domestic law in order to further the UK’s ‘interests’ abroad. But if a serviceman is under a duty not to obey a manifestly unlawful order, why should a taxpayer? No taxpayer need be complicit in the funding of illegal wars of aggression and every taxpayer and employer who collects PAYE, NI for HM government and pays VAT has a responsibility to find out just how those taxes are spent and to obtain irrefutable proof they are not being used to fund wars of aggression, crimes against humanity and genocide.


This site provides information on how to withhold taxes from the government at such times when the government is in breach of domestic and international law.


There are multiple international laws, ratified into UK law which clearly state that it is a criminal offence in Britain to give money to a person or organisation if there is a reasonable cause to suspect that it may be used for criminal purposes, such as funding terrorism, wars of aggression or genocide.

Furthermore, the MOD’s own Manual of Military Law (1955) Part I, Chapter VI, Article 24 states:

‘If a person, who is bound to obey a duly constituted superior, receives from the superior an order to do some act or make some omission which is manifestly illegal, he is under a legal duty to refuse to carry out the order and if he does carry it out he will be criminally responsible for what he does in doing so…’

Similarly, the MOD’s Manual of the Law of Armed Conflict states:

‘Orders from a superior in this context include those of a government, a superior - military or civilian - or a national law or regulation. A serviceman is under a duty not to obey a manifestly unlawful order’


We therefore contend that to aid and abet actions which are in clear breach of international and domestic law, where aiding and abetting includes the funding of any wars of aggression which are manifestly illegal, would be a crime in which we are unwilling to be complicit and for which the perpetrator could be found criminally responsible.

Who Are We?


ProbityCo is an independent, voluntary coalition of people working to bring together those who believe conscience should trump statute – especially when the statutes are written by those with conflicting interests.

Chris Coverdale is a former governance consultant and peace campaigner who is actively engaged in informing local and central governments on how to observe and enforce the laws of war.  Chris set up ProbityCo in 2023 to help taxpayers avoid complicity in aiding and abetting war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. By withholding tax, taxpayers can hold HM Government to account until it abides by those international war laws to which it is a signatory. 

Hugh Goggin is a chartered accountant and homoeopath who in 2020 saw the global mandating frenzy to jab the entire population for what it clearly is. When he came across Probity’s Declaration and Deed in March 2023, he immediately actioned it. He is also an active member of the Peace Keepers’ tax rebellion movement.

War between nations was renounced by the signatories of the Kellogg-Briand Treaty. This means that it has become throughout practically the entire world, an illegal thing. Hereafter, when nations engage in armed conflict, either one or both of them must be termed violators of this general treaty law.

- Henry Stimson, US Secretary of State 1932
