Taxing Times: Is there anything wrong with tax avoidance?


27th September 2011, 05:45PM
The ACC, Concourse Fringe Room 9

Demos, Christian Aid and Action Aid are proud to present this panel event at the Labour Party Conference that will examine the effects of corporate tax avoidance on the UK and overseas. We are delighted to be joined by:

Angela Eagle MP, Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury

Graham Dale, Head of Public Affairs, ICAEW

Richard Murphy, Director, Tax Research UK

Joseph Stead, Senior Economic Justice Adviser, Christian Aid

Vanessa Houlder, Journalist, Financial Times (Chair)

Given the UK's role in the G20 and the position of London as a centre of finance, the UK is able to lead the world in addressing the issue of corporate tax avoidance. This event will provide an opportunity to examine how to achieve policy coherence between Government departments to better tackle corporate tax avoidance, whilst also considering the ethics of tax avoidance for multinational corporations.
