Senior figures in the tax world sighed when they heard that the pre-Budget report was to be delivered on the 5 December. The Chartered Institute of Tax is having a grand 75th anniversary reception that night, making it a very busy 24 hours for some of the profession’s most prominent tax people.

‘The pre-Budget report will be a perfect topic for conversation,’ our man at the CIOT adds, putting a brave face on it.
