Event description

Description

What role does tax play in safeguarding the most financially vulnerable in society?

Tolley and LexisNexis invites you to a one-day hackathon to explore how fintech and tax technology can be used to support those that are least likely to have access to professional support.

We recognise that trying to navigate one of the most complex tax systems in the world without professional help leads to overpaying tax, under-utilising benefits and cases where individuals are targeted for fraud.

When and where is it?

Join us on 19 March 2020 at Lexis House in our full-day hackathon where you’ll work in teams to come up with creative solutions to tricky problems.

Who can take part?

This hackathon is an open event. We believe solving complex social issues requires individuals with diverse backgrounds, skills and experiences. On the day we hope to bring together those with skills in software engineering, design, product and tax expertise but we also want great communicators who can pitch in front of audiences, craft compelling marketing messages, facilitate workshops and so much more.

You can take part in this hackathon whether you have technical or non-technical skills. So, if you’re not a software developer, that’s ok. There will be activities you can help with including contributing ideas, challenging groupthink, facilitating mini workshops and much more.

Do I need to bring anything?

Bring your own device and we'll take care of the rest including WiFi, access to cloud services and food and drinks throughout the day.
