CIOT and ATT Essex Branch

26 Apr 2021

Welcome to the Essex Branch of the Chartered Institute of Taxation and Association of Taxation Technicians.

Welcome from your Branch Chair, Gina Mills

We organise a lecture programme that runs between September – June each year, where we have access to some of the best tax lecturers on the circuit.  

The lectures are aimed at both seasoned tax professionals, newly qualified tax professionals, students and general practitioners, in fact any one that wants to come.  There should be something for everyone, particularly in an ever changing and fast moving tax environment.  We pride ourselves on providing a friendly welcome at the lectures, which provide an invaluable opportunity for attendees to network, meet new people,  catch up with former colleagues,  share ideas and suggestions in a relaxed, friendly environment.  The lectures are also an excellent source of great value CPD to members and students alike.  

The committee works very hard to ensure that the lecture programme meets the needs of all attendees as far as possible.  

If you have any comments, suggestions or feedback, please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the committee members.

Caroline Barnes

I am currently responsible for booking the venues for our meetings and conferences. I served as Treasurer for a number of years before that. I joined the Committee to become more involved in the Essex branch where I have been a member for many years. I enjoy the networking opportunities and the variety of topics covered at our local meetings. I run my own general practice, specialising in personal tax and small OMBs. I work with many interesting and sometimes challenging clients, but still enjoy working in tax after nearly 40 years.
