Britain’s biggest bank has indicated that it may keep its headquarters in the UK for the sake of customer credibility, after a senior official said a number of low tax jurisdictions had approached the group.

Chris Spooner, the group’s head of financial planning and tax, told a London conference that there had been “nothing tempting yet”, but the group had moved its headquarters before and was “not scared to do so again,” Accountancy Age reported last Thursday.
