Avoidance and Professional Conduct in Relation to Tax

Tax investigations expert John Cassidy explains what is changing, both in the UK and the international arena, and what agents need to know.

On 1 November 2016 the seven professional bodies published an updated code of conduct in relation to tax. This includes the profession’s response to the government challenge of March 2015 to tighten our professional standards around the creation and promotion of tax avoidance schemes. The new code takes effect from 1 March 2017.

ICAEW deputy president Nick Parker, ICAEW Head of Tax Frank Haskew and ICAEW Case Manager, Investigations Sophie Falcon guide you through the background to the challenge, the changes to the code of practice and what members need to watch out for.
