Tax and the City

The CIOT went transatlantic on 12 May with the inaugural meeting of the North America Branch (or Chapter). A networking reception, generously sponsored by Thomson Reuters, and held at their impressive offices at 3 Times Square (off 44th and Broadway) was well attended by representatives from the US financial and business communities as well as CTAs working in New York City and surrounds.

With the event space being situated on the 30th floor, guests had a superior view of the New Year's Eve Ball while we enjoyed drinks and canap├ęs and listened to speeches by Vincent Oratore, Brian Peccarelli, President of the Tax & Accounting business at Thomson Reuters and Robert Moncrieff, North America Branch Chairman-Elect and partner at Ernst & Young in New York.

The next event for the Branch will be a technical meeting in September. All meetings will be open to anyone with a professional interest in tax and if you would like to receive news and alerts, don't forget to sign up in your site profile.

My own knowledge of international tax was greatly advanced by my visit (I learnt that NYC sales tax is 8.875%!) and we wish the 36th Branch of the CIOT every success.
