Anthony Thomas' inaugural speech to stress importance of building trust with HMRC

THE INCOMING president of the Chartered Institute of Taxation has said that he will prioritise building trust with HM Revenue & Customs.

Anthony Thomas (pictured) will address the institute today when he succeeds Vincent Oratore as president.

In his address, Thomas will say: “A fair tax system requires respect on both sides. HMRC is at risk of damaging the trust that has been built up over centuries between tax payers and tax collectors.”

Speaking before the meeting, he said: “I recognise that maintaining a proper professional and working relationship with HMRC centred on mutual trust; respect will not be easy but my goal is to try to improve the position for all concerned.”

Thomas will be succeeded as deputy president by Patrick Stevens.
