Stevens takes tax policy role at CIOT
Patrick Stevens, a past president of the Chartered Institute of Taxation in the UK, has become the organisation’s new tax policy director, in succession to John Whiting, who retired on April 1 to become a non-executive director of HM Revenue & Customs.
Stevens will retire as a partner of EY to take up his new role which will mean he will be the lead spokesperson on tax policy for the largest professional body for tax professionals in the UK. He stepped down as president of CIOT at the end of his one-year term in May.
At EY his clients included entrepreneurial companies and their shareholders, professional partnerships, retail investment funds and private clients.
