ICAS/CIOT webinar: Building a better tax system

April 15, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm IST


Event summary

Our experts from ICAS and CIOT will be joined by a leading polling expert on awareness and understanding of devolved taxes in Scotland for a panel discussion on our priorities for the devolved tax system in the 2021-26 Scottish Parliament. Our speakers will take you through the steps we have proposed to help build a better Scottish tax system and strengthen decision making. You will also get an insight into the engagement that our organisations undertake with politicians, and how this supports the educational and public interest objectives of our institutes and our Members to improve public understanding.

Tax processes need to be as robust as possible to support tax policy, and the speakers will discuss the joint ICAS CIOT manifesto in the run up to the Scottish Parliament elections in May, along with wider developments in UK tax policy – and their significance to Scotland – as we emerge from the pandemic.
