Commerce & Industry Group

Welcome to the Commerce and Industry Branch of the Chartered Institute of Taxation and Association of Taxation Technicians. 

Welcome from the Branch Chair,  Robert De La Rue 

Welcome to the Commerce & Industry Group for the CIOT and ATT. This group was established for the benefit of tax professionals working within in-house teams as well as for the benefit of all professionals with an interest in the practical application of tax regulations within businesses.

We focus on the practical challenges of managing the ever-increasing compliance requirements for Business and how to implement new changes in regulations, as well as exploring how tax professionals can use or develop their skills to support the wider goals of their organisation. 

We hold a number of evening sessions each year in London which are free to attend and an annual full-day conference which often attracts leading industry speakers and delegates.  All of our events offer excellent networking opportunities and allow attendees to ask questions and share experiences with their peers. 

The group is also a great platform for in-house professionals who would like to present for the first time or get involved with the CIOT or ATT by volunteering with the committee in a supportive environment.  We look forward to seeing you at our events.
