Whiting to head up CIoT tax policy

PwC tax partner announces early retirement in addition to new institute role

John Whiting has been appointed tax policy director for the Chartered
Institute of Taxation.

In announcing the appointment, Whiting also confirmed plans to take early
retirement from his partnership post within PricewaterhouseCoopers, effective
from June.

Commenting on the appointment, Peter Fanning, CEO of the CIoT, said Whiting
has ‘that rare ability of making tax understandable to the man or woman on the
Clapham Omnibus.’

A former president of the institute, Whiting will lead the development and
presentation of the CIOT’s views on tax policy matters, and will take up his
post in the newly-created role on a part-time basis in July.
