WELCOME TO THE 2013 BRITISH BRANCH PROGRAMME
The British Branch of IFA has long been known 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 2013 programme we continue to focus on the more practical aspects of the many and varied topics selected for discussion this year. We are pleased to have arranged a number of joint meetings with the Dutch, Irish and Canadian Branches as well as with the Oxford Centre for Business Taxation, the Chartered Institute of Taxation European Branch and HM Revenue and Customs and HM Treasury.
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.
We always welcome suggestions, feedback and ideas for improving our programme and services to members so please do contact me if you are happy to share any thoughts with us.
Tax is more than ever a matter of public interest and the focus of attention in the boardroom so there is much for the tax profession to discsus and we look forward to welcoming you to engage in the debate.
Paul Morton Chairman, British Branch
We will contact you in advance of each meeting to confirm the venue and other arrangements.
Please note that registration is required for all meetings. A charge will be made for the joint meetings, including the joint meeting with the US Branch.
