Business giants gearing up for CIoT summit

Some of the UK’s most influential corporate accountants are gearing up for a
high-profile summit meeting hosted by the CIoT.

In the wake of an election in which tax was a key plank of party manifestos,
industry figures from the UK’s biggest companies will be discussing how the tax
framework can be a key contributor to business success at the CIoT Commerce
& Industry Group’s annual conference on 16 September.

Group tax chiefs giving their views will include Barclays’ Ian
Menzies-Conacher, Helen Jones, senior VP of global tax at GlaxoSmithKline, Paul
Morton from Reed Elsevier, Rio Tinto’s Chris Lenon and Jeff Connell, Shell’s
group tax reporting manager.

“The importance of tax to business can be readily understood from the UK
Government’s recent responses to the representations on tax policy made by
business in recent years,” the CIoT said.

“It must be the business tax practitioner’s aim to ensure that the business
or businesses they work for optimise their tax positions and effectively manage
their relationship with revenue authorities.”
