Paying Up: Is tax a question of ethics?"

JustShare and Christian Aid Panel Debate

Recent years of tax avoidance scandals have left a wake of confusion, presenting challenging questions which continue to divide the public. A lack of trust in companies to behave responsibly has also created a clamour for better transparency of finances and changes to laws. Some also claim a genuine engagement with ethics seems to be the only way out. But do ethics belong in tax, or is following the law good enough?

Join us for this timely debate as our panel of experts in economics, tax laws and ethics discuss the dividing lines between tax as a legal obligation and tax as part of our relationship with society.

The discussion will be chaired by Katharine Teague, Christian Aid’s Senior Adviser on the Private Sector and the panel of speakers includes:

•Richard D. North, veteran writer and broadcaster, and fellow of the Institute of Economics and the Social Affairs Unit
•Heather Self, Partner (non-lawyer) at Pinsent Masons
•John Christensen, Director, Tax Justice Network

Free, all welcome. Fairtrade refreshments to follow.
