Lagerberg to sit on Treasury's corporate tax reform body

Grant Thornton tax chief joins Treasury's Forum of Tax Professionals

The government has made Francesca Lagerberg, Grant Thornton’s head of tax, a
member of the Forum of Tax Professionals, the body set up by the Treasury for
consultation on corporate tax issues.

Also on the forum are E&Y’s Chris Sanger, global director of tax and
chairman of the ICAEW’s Tax Faculty, Vincent Oratore, chairman of the Chartered
Institute of Taxation and E&Y partner, Jane McCormick, head of corporate tax
at KPMG and Stephen Herring, senior tax partner at BDO.

Lagerberg said in a statement: “For too long businesses in the UK have
suffered from knee jerk reactions made on tax policy and I would hope that this
forum will allow for the voice of business to be heard by policy makers so as to
improve UK competitiveness.”

News of Lagerberg’s appointment came on the same day that it was announced
that John Whiting, tax policy director at the CIoT, will jointly head the new
Office of Tax Simplification.
