Past events

Past event
Felicity Buchan MP and leading experts in tax will discuss whether the UK should make more use of taxes on wealth. Even if the overall tax take doesn’t rise, should more be raised from wealth for distributional reasons? And, if we are to tax wealth more, should this be achieved by reforming current taxes, such as those on property, capital gains and inheritances?
Past event
At this IFS event, experts will discuss new financial pressures and service responsibilities for councils in England and Wales as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, forthcoming reforms to the council funding system and social care reforms.
