From changes to salary sacrifice, the latest on making tax digital and insight into where a career in tax can take you, the first edition of CA Tax contains an array of helpful articles. We hope you don’t find it too, ahem, taxing.

Developed for the ICAS Tax Community, CA Tax is a digital magazine designed to alert you to important tax issues and inform you of the ICAS tax team’s activities, such as their input into policy-making and course information.

Our first issue features essential reading for all those dealing with employment tax as Justine Riccomini highlights the changes to salary sacrifice which are coming into force on 6 April.

We catch up with ICAS member Nicki Eastlake Bent, International Tax Manager at Specsavers, who tells us that Brexit isn’t the only challenge that international business has to contend with.

The confirmation that the UK corporation tax rate will reduce to 19% from April 2017 and to 17% in 2020 prompts Fiona Winter to review corporation tax computation.

Our news round-up will be a regular feature in each edition. This edition’s includes some handy tips for ITP students about to sit their exams (Good luck!) and the latest on making tax digital (MTD).

MTD isn’t far from most practitioner’s minds at the moment. As it moves into a new phase from April 2017 our resident MTD guru, Philip McNeil asks: are you ready for the transformation?

Finally, many of you will be familiar with Donald Drysdale’s commentary. We are pleased to feature not one, but two articles from Donald in this edition ­and delighted to announce that he has been shortlisted for Tax Commentator of the Year in the Taxation Awards 2017.
