Bill Dodwell becomes tax director of UK Office of Tax Simplification

Bill Dodwell will succeed Paul Morton as the tax director of the UK Office of Tax Simplification (OTS).

Dodwell joined the OTS in July 2018 as a senior policy adviser after retiring from Deloitte. He will continue to provide expert advice, guidance and direction as part of his new role at the OTS.

Alongside his new position, he will also continue his role as editor-in-chief of the Chartered Institute of Taxation’s (CIOT’s) Tax Adviser magazine and remain as a member of the GAAR Advisory Panel.

The OTS was established in 2010 to provide advice to the Chancellor on simplifying the UK tax system and was made a permanent, independent office of HM Treasury in July 2015. It was put on a statutory footing in the Finance Act 2016.
