Ipswich Quakers – in association with Towns against Tax Dodging

A Talk and Discussion on Tax Avoidance with Richard Murphy

In the UK we spend 98 billion annually on education but lose over 100 billion in tax avoidance and evasion at the same time.

Avoidance of tax is legal. But is it moral? Are HMRC out of control, and should we have an Office for Tax Responsibility. Are our local High Street shops paying their fair share. Should you pay your window cleaner in cash. Should Ipswich become a Town against Tax Dodging. Should you ask your hairdresser for a receipt when you tip her?!

You are invited to join us on Wednesday 15th April at 7.30pm at the Quaker Meeting House in Fonnereau Road, Ipswich, when we will be discussing these questions and more – after a talk by Richard Murphy.

Richard is a chartered accountant, economist, founding member of the Tax Justice Network and an authority on the growing evil of tax avoidance. Often heard on radio and seen on television he’s been described as a campaigner “with Duracell batteries”. (He’s also an ex Northgate School pupil so a ‘local boy’).

Come and participate in the debate, ask a few questions or just listen to what Richard has to say.
