Taxpayers at ITR’s virtual Women in Tax forums held in the Americas and Europe say career progression requires the support of good mentors, a corporate sponsorship programme, building a good network and, most of all, taking advantage of every opportunity that comes your way.

The events, held in the Americas on September 16 and in Europe on September 17-18, saw more than 600 women come together to discuss career progression, discrimination and dealing with racism, managing an in-house tax department and all the most important tax developments affecting multinational enterprises.

Across the three days, in-house tax directors and advisors discussed the EU Directive on Administrative Cooperation (DAC6) and the risk of getting compliance wrong, the pitfalls of certain US tax rules, the advantages of tax technology and how to deal with the unexpected tax implications of COVID-19.

Here, Alice Jones and Danish Mehboob report on the some of the conversations.
