On Monday 9 June a blue plaque will be unveiled in the City of London in Pancras Lane where the Institute of Taxation was founded in 1930, later to become The Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT). The plaque will be unveiled by Alderman and Sheriff, Ian Luder. The blue plaque cannot be on the original building as that was bombed during World War 11 but it will be located in the same place. The process to have the commemorative plaque at Pancras Lane began in 2005, the 75th anniversary of the Institute. The City of London Corporation considers each application carefully before authorising the installation of a Plaque.
Nick Goulding, CIOT President, says: “It is partly in recognition of the CIOT’s contribution to the advancement of education of the general public in taxation that it was considered important that the place where the Institute began should be marked in this way. As President, I shall be very proud on behalf of all our members to take part in the unveiling.”
Alderman and Sheriff Ian Luder is a past President of the CIOT. The unveiling takes place during Tax Advice Week.
