APPG on Taxation meeting focusing on tax and the implications of Brexit on 14th November 2018

The next APPG Taxation meeting focusing on tax and the implications of Brexit will take place at 12.45pm on Wednesday 14th November.

Founded in 2006, the APPG aims to create a 'safe space' for parliamentarians and interested stakeholders to meet, discuss and develop innovative proposals to reform, simplify and make the UK's taxation system fairer. You can find a link to our website with further information here.

The meeting will consider how the UK’s taxation system could be impacted by Brexit, as we prepare to leave the European Union.  Indirect taxes, such as VAT and customs duties - as well as certain direct taxes - could be significantly impacted by Brexit, which creates an unprecedented opportunity for the Government to reform and gain more flexibility on the structure of these taxes in the UK.

We are delighted to have an expert panel to lead the discussion, consisting of:

  • Richard Wild, Head of CIOT Tax Technical Team

  • Rory Meakin, Research Fellow at TaxPayers Alliance

  • Tom Clougherty, Head of Tax, Centre for Policy Studies

  • Barry Hearn, Chairman of Matchroom Sports and former Chartered Accountant
