printer Mail

Office of Tax Simplification (OTS) tax director, Paul Morton, has announced he will be stepping down from the role for personal reasons. He will remain in post until a successor is appointed.

The OTS chair, Angela Knight CBE, has also confirmed her intention to step down, once a new tax director and chair are in place. Citing pressure of other commitments, Angela Knight said she would hand over the role ‘in the knowledge that the OTS has been revitalised, its role strengthened and its impact increasing’.

The roles of OTS chair and tax director are both statutory appointments, to be made by the chancellor of the exchequer in accordance with Finance Act 2016 Sch 25.
