Public Sector Event

Better Budgets: Making Tax Policy Better

Venue: Institute for Government, 2 Carlton Gardens, London SW1Y 5AA

Date: 16 Jan 2017

Synopsis: The Institute for Government, Chartered Institute of Taxation, and the Institute for Fiscal Studies invite you to the launch of a new report, “Better Budgets: Tax Policy Better.”


The Chancellor has already signalled a willingness to reform tax policymaking with the announcement in his Autumn Statement of the return to a single annual fiscal event which we recommended earlier in the year.  Our new report sets out ways to capitalise on and embed that change setting the course for better tax policy. 

Three of the report authors— Bill Dodwell, President of the Chartered Institute of Taxation; Paul Johnson, Director, Institute for Fiscal Studies, and Jill Rutter, Programme Director, Institute for Government— will set out the principal recommendations of the report.
Jane Ellison MP, Financial Secretary to the Treasury, will respond to the report.

There will then be an opportunity for questions and discussion.
The event will be chaired by Julian McCrae, Deputy Director, Institute for Government.
