18 September - ICAS Insights: In conversation with Mel Stride MP, Alison Thewliss MP and Lucy O'Carroll
Join us for a conversation with the Chair of the House of Commons Treasury Committee, Mel Stride MP, Committee Member Alison Thewliss MP, and Director of Taxation in the Scottish Government, Lucy O’Carroll, to discuss the Committee’s open inquiry ‘tax after coronavirus’.
The reconstruction of the economy after the unprecedented fallout of the coronavirus crisis is an opportunity for the Committee to examine the tax system. The Committee is looking at what the major long-term pressures on the UK tax system are, what more the UK can do to protect its tax base from globalisation and technological change, and whether such pressures should be met with tax reform. The Committee is also seeking evidence on what overall level of taxation the economy can bear, the role of tax reliefs in rebuilding the economy, and whether there is a role for windfall taxes in the post-coronavirus world.
