Women in Tax – Europe forum 2021


Tax directors at ITR’s Women in Tax conference in June 2021 discussed digital and environmental taxes, global transfer pricing (TP) developments, career progression, and tax technology.

More than 240 tax practitioners from across Europe tuned in to hear the panellists discuss everything from increasing tax transparency measures to the best way to implement tax technology projects for long-term success. TP compliance was also on the agenda as tax authorities gear up for audits following the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tax directors also discussed career progression and offered advice for other women in tax who are looking to advance their careers or support their team to do so. One workshop focused on the importance of leadership in tax teams, while a second covered the importance of demanding opportunities to ensure that no members of the team are overlooked.

Here Leanna Reeves, Alice JonesDanish Mehboob, and Anugraha Sundaravelu report on the discussions.
