The Fair Tax Conference 2018, sponsored by SSE, will be the marquee opening event of the UK’s first ever Fair Tax Fortnight – which will celebrate those companies and organisations that are proud to pay their fair share of corporation tax and the positive contribution this makes to society.

The Conference will feature leaders from business, academia, politics and campaigning – who will explore key topics such as responsible tax planning, how to tackle tax avoidance and the case for Corporation Tax. There will also be a range of engaging workshops that will provide access to cutting-edge practitioners and thought-leaders.

Increasingly, responsible tax payers are differentiating themselves from the avoiders and evaders, and leaded the next big development in corporate responsibility – so book now to stay ahead of the curve.

Doors open at 9.30am, with our opening plenary commencing at 10am. Food and drink are included in the ticket price.

Display stalls can be booked direct with the Fair Tax Mark. Call 0161 769 0427, or email info@fairtaxmark.net.

Ethical Consumer are the accredited media partner for the Conference. The Conference is supported by the Friends Provident Foundation, who are a major supporter of Fair Tax Fortnight 2018.
