Calling tax directors...

printer Mail


The Tax Journal Breakfast Club comprises a series of invitation-only events, exclusively for Tax Directors / Heads of Group Tax in business (i.e. those with overall responsibility for the tax affairs of an organisation).

How it works: The club meets four times per year, for breakfast, at a venue in central London. At each event, Tax Directors will hear from - and, crucially, be able to question - a leading figure in tax, typically a senior tax policy official, who will be discuss issues of immediate relevance to the corporate tax community. 40-50 Tax Directors attend each meeting, making this a good opportunity to network with your peers from other organisations. All discussions take place under Chatham House rules.

There is no charge to attend, but places are invitation-only and subject to availability.
