Tax Director of OTS steps down

20 June 2016

John Whiting has made the decision to step down from his position as Tax Director for the Office for Tax Simplification (OTS).

John Whiting recently received an OBE for services to Tax Simplification. As we mentioned at the time of the Queen’s birthday honours, John Whiting has been a regular attendee at many of our National Forums in which he has updated our members, but perhaps more importantly, has sought their views on several different aspects under consideration to ensure the OTS makes fully informed recommendations.

The CIPP applaud the work of the OTS so far, and John Whiting’s contribution and look forward to working with his replacement, when appointed.

The Treasury has started the recruitment process for a permanent Tax Director which closes to applications on 14 July 2016.
