Tax historian Professor Peter Allen will be talking to the Cambridge Tax Discussion Group about death taxes. From the Romans to Magna Carta, through the Middle Ages to the current day, Peter will show how death taxes have a far longer and varied history than most people perceive. Peter will discuss not only the developing nature of death taxes themselves, but also the societal contexts in which they were levied, with particular reference to the taxes’ conflicts with inheritances and landed estates. Peter is Associate Professor of Accounting & Taxation at the University of Nottingham. A Chartered Tax Adviser and qualified accountant, Peter has been an adviser at HM Treasury’s Office of Tax Simplification and Tax Policy Research Manager at the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales (ICAEW).
