The COVID-19 pandemic has required unprecedented government support programmes. These have come at a significant cost which has seen government borrowing rise much higher than was forecast a year ago.
As we move out of the crisis and into recovery, how should tax policy change to encourage growth while trying to raise much needed extra revenue to bring the public sector debt back into balance?
Join this panel discussion on the future of tax policy post-COVID. Guest speaker will be Dame Meg Hillier MP, Chair of the Public Accounts Committee, who will give an opening statement on the work of the Public Accounts Committee.
Meg will be joined by a panel of experts who will be offering their thoughts and views on future tax policy and we will then welcome comments and questions from participants.
