Stephen is currently our Alumni Network Group Chair with responsibility for the College of Social Sciences and International Studies.

Stephen will discuss a number of areas of interest including:

·           Corporate tax policy – inevitable and sensible or a race to the bottom?
Will the UK win our case?

·           Why are so many companies seeking to leave the US?

·           The PAC – proper HMRC oversight or discouraging investment?

·           Is HMRC doing a good job – or is it “too close to business”?

·           Are multinationals getting away with blue murder – or simply behaving sensibly?

·           Is transfer pricing a mess?

·           What’s BEPS all about – and what will it achieve?

·           What is the answer on taxing the digital economy – is a digital tax appropriate in the modern economy or should we be careful what we wish for?
