CIOT confirms Glyn Fullelove as president

The Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) has announced its team of officers for 2019-20, with Glyn Fullelove becoming president, Peter Rayney as deputy president and Susan Ball as vice president from 21 May 2019

Susan Ball is the fourth woman to be named as vice president with former presidents including Jenny Ainsworth, Penny Hamilton and most recently Anne Fairpo.

Ball is a partner, head of national employers advisory services, at Crowe covering employment tax and national insurance, reward and expatriate tax. She has been a CIOT Council member since 2017 and is also a member of CIOT’s employment taxes sub-committee and a past joint chair and founder member of the CIOT/ATT Suffolk Branch.

Susan Ball, CIOT vice-president elect, said: ‘It is an honour to take on the role of vice president at such a pivotal time for our profession.

‘It is now more than 100 years since women got the vote and, as a profession, we will also soon reach the 100-year landmark since the accountancy bodies opened up to women.

‘With tax, gender and diversity in the workplace never far from public discussion I am really looking forward to raising the voice of the CIOT’s women members working in all spheres of the industry, over the coming years. We want to empower everyone in the profession regardless of background, ethnicity, sexuality or a disability to achieve their potential and be agents of change.’

Current CIOT deputy president, Glyn Fullelove, will succeed Ray McCann to become president. Fullelove is chairman of the technical committee of the CIOT and a former chairman of the international taxes sub-committee. Until September 2018 he headed the tax function at Informa and has held senior tax and finance roles in commerce for the last 20 years.

Fullelove said: ‘As a country we live in uncertain times, and the UK tax profession will no doubt face many short-term challenges, whatever form Brexit ultimately takes. However, CIOT is in a strong position whatever the future holds. I am looking forward to working with Peter and Susan, the CIOT Council and our staff team at Monck Street to ensure the long-term success of the Institute.’

Peter Rayney will be the Institute’s new Deputy President. Rayney practices as an independent tax consultant, having previously been a tax partner at BDO, and regularly contributes to Accountancy Daily.

Rayney said: ‘I look forward to another challenging and exciting year in my new role as the CIOT’s deputy president. It is a great pleasure working with our enthusiastic and indefatigable team of officers and CIOT management.

‘We see enormous changes in the professional tax landscape and I am immensely proud to help serve our Institute in providing the best services for its members and students. We have also an extremely important role to play in making sure that new tax law and HMRC policy is understandable, works fairly, and avoids unintended adverse consequences.’

The team of officers was formally approved by the CIOT’s Council last month. They will begin their new roles on 21 May 2019 and hold them for a year. Until then Ray McCann remains president.
