CIPP comment

We appreciate these topics may not be of relevance to everyone. Talking Points cover a diverse range of subjects but if there is something that you would like to hear about and have the opportunity to ask questions, then please email policy with ‘Talking Points’ in the title and let us know; we shall pass on your interest to HMRC.
