The Tax division represents member firms and helps them to analyse and communicate the impact of proposed legislation, and has regular and constructive dialogue with legislators and policymakers in Brussels, London and across the EU in pursuit of tax regimes that deliver fair, orderly and efficient markets across the region.

The work of the Tax division is organised in two Committees: the Tax Committee covers direct tax issues; and the VAT Committee oversees all VAT-related and indirect tax issues. The committees comprise the UK and Regional heads of tax/VAT at member firms.

The Tax division also chairs, and provides the secretariat to, the EUSD City Group, which focuses on the European Savings Tax Directive.
