Launch of a House of Commons Treasury Committee report
Tax After Coronavirus Report Launch
Join us for the launch of the House of Commons Treasury Committee’s Tax after Coronavirus report on Monday 1 March. Committee chair Rt Hon Mel Stride and fellow committee member Dame Angela Eagle will introduce the report and highlight key conclusions and recommendations before being interviewed by CIOT President Peter Rayney.
Attendees will have the opportunity to put their own questions to Mel and Dame Angela via sli.do.
The report is the culmination of a seven month inquiry by the committee into what the tax system will – and should – look like following the reconstruction of the economy after the unprecedented economic fallout of the coronavirus crisis. In the course of the inquiry the committee has taken more than 14 hours of oral evidence from 29 expert witnesses and received 126 written submissions.
The inquiry has explored what the major long-term pressures on the UK tax system are, what more the UK can do to protect its tax base from globalisation and technological change, and whether such pressures should be met with tax reform. The committee has also sought evidence on what overall level of taxation the economy can bear, the role of tax reliefs in rebuilding the economy, and whether there is a role for windfall taxes in the post-coronavirus world.
