Inheritance tax: what lessons can we learn from the Irish CAT system for our most disliked of taxes?

Room 415 Muirhead Tower
Tuesday 4 July 2017 (12:30-14:00)

Please get in touch with Helen Harris – – if you would like to attend this session.

CHASM Associate Sally Antrobus (University of Plymouth) will speak to us about her current work exploring development possibilities for the UK’s Inheritance tax system. She will explore philosophical arguments for its continued existence and also present preliminary findings from her work looking at the potential to improve the redistributional role of this tax using alterative threshold systems as found in Ireland (and elsewhere in Europe).
