WELCOME TO THE 2014 BRITISH BRANCH PROGRAMME
The British Branch of IFA continues to be highly respected for the outstanding technical content of its meetings and for the deep knowledge and experience of its members drawn from all parts of the tax community. In the 2014 programme we continue to focus on the more practical aspects of the many and varied topics selected for discussion this year. Once again, we are delighted to be holding joint meetings with the Chartered Institute of Taxation European Branch and HM Revenue and Customs and HM Treasury. We are particularly grateful for the strong support from leaders in HM Treasury and HMRC which ensures that our programme is both well informed and appropriately balanced.
We would like to continue to attract younger members; the relaxed and congenial post-meeting drinks provide a wonderful opportunity to exchange views, meet tax professionals from other parts of the tax community and, from other counties and to make new professional friends. Please share details of the programme with your colleagues, particularly those who at an earlier stage of their career. We would both be delighted to speak personally to any prospective new member.
We always welcome suggestions, feedback and ideas for improving our programme and services to members so please do contact us if you are happy to share any thoughts.
Tax continues to be a matter of great public interest and one of the top issues in the boardroom so there is much for the tax profession to discuss and we look forward to welcoming you to engage in the debate.
