Permanent chair and tax director for Office of Tax Simplification being advertised

THE TREASURY has issued adverts for a permanent chair and tax director of the Office of Tax Simplification.

The current incumbents, chair Michael Jack (pictured left) and tax director John Whiting (pictured right), have been in their temporary roles for one year; they are both understood to be applying for the permanent positions.

The positions will be voluntary, the adverts will state, although the tax director will receive an honorarium of £12,000 a year “in recognition of their contribution to government policymaking”.

The exechequer secretary to the Treasury wrote to the OTS officers last month calling on them to look into the administration of the small business taxation system. He also asked for suggestions from the office for possible other areas of work, which the OTS is expected to announce in the next fortnight.
