Welcome to the Manchester Branch of the Chartered Institute of Taxation and Association of Taxation Technicians
Welcome from your Branch Chair, Paul Davies
I am very pleased to act as chairman of the Manchester District branch and to chair meetings of the local branch committee.
One of the objectives of the CIOT and ATT is to advance the continuing education of professionals concerned in the practice of taxation as a profession. The local branches each make a significant contribution to this objective by arranging a series of technical seminars for practitioners; each branch has considerable freedom to make its own arrangements in this regard, as it thinks best for its local members.
We are always open to ideas, so if members want to propose topics for next year’s series of seminars, or have any other suggestions about the seminars, they should please get in touch.
Tax can be a dry subject so in the interest of balance the committee normally arranges at least one social event each year at which members can socialise, network, and exchange views in an informal setting.
All of these activities entail a significant amount of work and I am very fortunate to be supported by a number of individuals on the Manchester committee, some of whom have been giving their time for this purpose for a good number of years. I would like to extend particular thanks to our outgoing chair, Lindsey Holmes, for her work until now, which has ensured the affairs of the local committee were in such good order prior to my appointment.
