VAT expert to head up CIoT

The Chartered Institute of Taxation has appointed a barrister and VAT expert as its new president to replace John Whiting.

Penny Hamilton is the first barrister to be appointed to the post, and only the second woman in the history of the CIoT. She is the author of numerous books on VAT, tax and environmental tax.

She spent 11 years as a barrister at the office of the Solicitor for Customs & Excise, before joining Deloitte, Haskins and Sells where she made partner in 1989.

She is set to use her experience at Customs to foster better relationships between taxpayers and the government office and raise the CIoT qualification amongst the legal profession.

Other roles have been at PricewaterhouseCoopers and at Pump Court Tax Chambers.
