The election is over and a new government has been appointed. But what does it mean for tax?

The Labour manifesto set out a handful of tax raising measures that would raise a small amount of extra revenue, committed to replacing the business rates system and promised a roadmap for corporation tax. But there will, surely, be more action than this on tax in the coming parliament.

Across the next five years, what should Labour look to achieve on tax policy? Should they reform the design of the tax system and, if so, where should they start?  Should improvements to HMRC customer service and other aspects of tax administration be a priority?  Should the government be looking to raise more revenue to spend on public services? If so, how can this be done while sticking to the pledge to 'not increase taxes on working people'?

Join us and an expert panel on the eve of the new parliamentary session to discuss these important questions.

Our Panel:

  • Alice Jeffries, Head of Tax Policy at the Confederation of British Industry
  • Helen Miller, Deputy Director at the Institute for Fiscal Studies
  • Polly Toynbee, Journalist and Writer
