The conference is free to attend. UK Corporation Tax: Past, Present and Future 50th Anniversary of the UK Corporation Tax 10th Anniversary of the Centre for Business Taxation Friday 26 June 2015 Said Business School, Oxford 9.00am – 6.00pm 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the UK corporation tax. This presents an opportunity to step back from current concerns to assess the longer term development of the tax – its past, present and future. Looking back over the past 50 years of the tax we will take stock of the main landmarks in its development. To what extent has the tax changed and how? What lessons can we learn from our experience so far? How has the intellectual debate about taxing corporate profit developed over this period and how has it had an impact on the design of the UK tax? These questions set the scene for considering the current state of the UK corporation tax, and its future. Looking to the longer term, what are its strengths and weaknesses, and what reforms are needed? Is unilateral reform possible, or does the UK need to cooperate with other EU countries, or indeed more widely? The Oxford University Centre for Business Taxation’s annual summer conference, held on 26th June, will discuss these issues. Leading speakers from government, business, academia and the media will address different aspects of the UK corporation tax, discussing its development and future. 2015 also marks the 10th anniversary of the Oxford University Centre for Business Taxation. The final session of the conference will introduce the Centre’s contribution to existing knowledge about corporation tax, and a panel will discuss the open questions identified over the course of the conference, thus setting a future research agenda for the Centre. The conference will be followed by a drinks reception with canapés to mark the 10th anniversary of the Centre. Speakers at the conference will include: Peter Harris, Professor of Tax Law, Cambridge University: An historical perspective of UK corporation tax Michael Devereux, Director of the Centre for Business Taxation: 50 years of developing economic thinking about taxing profits Judith Freedman CBE, Pinsent Masons Professor of Taxation Law, Oxford University: Corporation Tax for small business Philip Baker QC, Field Court Tax Chambers: International aspects of corporation tax Malcolm Gammie CBE QC, One Essex Court: UK corporation tax and the EU Edward Troup, Second Permanent Secretary and Tax Assurance Commissioner, HMRC: Tax reforms and Political constraints (to be confirmed) Vanessa Houlder, Financial Times: The public perception of taxing corporate profit A panel on the future of corporation tax and corporation tax research will include: Reuven Avi-Yonah, Irwin I.
