Spotlight on the joint CIOT and ATT Tax Adviser Committee
Do you read Tax Adviser magazine? Well, if you are reading this, of course you do. Do you like what is in the magazine? Our recent surveys indicate high levels of satisfaction with the magazine, with the tax technical content considered by most respondents as having the greatest importance. You can find the full survey results at bit.ly/3RUI5so.
Do you read our weekly technical email, which is circulated on a Tuesday afternoon from either CIOT or ATT, headed ‘[your name], here is the latest news from [CIOT/ATT]’? You may have noticed that we changed the format of the email late last year, in response to feedback from the previous survey.
We are currently working on another survey to gather further feedback on Tax Adviser and the weekly technical email, and we will promote the survey when it is launched because we really want to hear your views. But would you like to have a greater influence on the content of these products? If so, read on.
You will have seen from our previous ‘spotlights’ that the CIOT and ATT carries out much of its work through its committees. Our joint CIOT and ATT Tax Adviser Committee oversees the Tax Adviser magazine (and its online equivalent) and the weekly technical email. The committee’s remit covers all aspects of the technical content of these products, seeking to ensure they meet the needs of today’s tax adviser by:
- reflecting the broad interests of CIOT and ATT members;
- providing a variety of content across the different tax regimes;
- containing an appropriate level of non-tax technical content (e.g. professional skills type articles);
- addressing topical issues; and
- providing valuable CPD.
It does this by supporting the Editor Angela Partington and Editor-in-chief Bill Dodwell in relation to the magazine’s content, providing, facilitating and reviewing feedback on previous content, and acting on the feedback received. The committee also looks ahead to future content, seeking to ensure that it will adequately cover upcoming developments and fiscal events.
The committee meets three or four times a year, mainly virtually, and is currently chaired by former ATT President Yvette Nunn.
We would love to hear from you if you would like to get involved with the committee’s work. If so, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
