CIOT/IFS Debate: Pensions and Savings: What role for the tax system?

What should the role of the tax system be in relation to pensions and other saving?

Every Budget seems to bring further changes to the tax regime for putting money into a pension or savings account. Does the Government have a long-term plan? Is the system working or is more fundamental reform necessary?

Join us for a panel discussion considering these questions, including speakers:

Yvonne Braun, Director, Long Term Savings Policy, ABI

David Thomas, Deputy Director, Pensions and Savings, HM Treasury

Paul Johnson, Director, Institute for Fiscal Studies

Charles McCready, Director, Tax Incentivised Savings Association

The debate will be chaired by Paul Lewis, Financial Journalist and Presenter, Moneybox, BBC Radio 4


The debate will conclude by 20:00 and will be followed by a drinks reception.


This is the seventh in a series of lectures and debates being organised by the CIOT and the IFS to promote debate among policy-makers, opinion-formers and the wider tax and economics communities on the future of the UK and international tax systems.
