Event description

Description

Few people like paying tax, but it's how we pay for the kind of society we want to build. So what's the relationship between tax law and ethics? How much tax should individuals and corporations pay? How can we ensure that the tax system is fair, efficient, and transparent? What does the Christian tradition say about the Common Good, and what can be expected from individuals and businesses?

This JustShare event is organised together with the Ecumenical Council for Corporate Responsibility, Church Action on Tax Justice, and London Churches Social Action. In the first half we will hear from three people on the Law, Theology, and current Issues. Then, over a more relaxed glass of wine, we will have an open discussion with the three speakers. Come for the first hour, and stay if you can for the second. It will be an informative and challenging evening.

Speakers include:

Fr Simon Cuff - Tutor and Lecturer in Theology, St Mellitus College

David Haslam - retired Methodist Minister, Chair of the recently-launched 'Church Action on Tax Justice'

Anne Fairpo - Temple Tax Chambers, Past President of Chartered Institute of Taxation
