INCREASE IN ACITA SUBSCRIPTION FOR 2018
ACITA is proposing to hold 3 National meetings during 2018 due to the changing amount of information available regarding BREXIT.
The dates are: AGM/National on 21st March 2018
Tuesday 10th July 2018
Wednesday 10th October or Thursday 18th October 2018 (to be confirmed)
As we are currently holding the meetings at The IET, Savoy Place, London, which we are sure you will agree is an extremely pleasant and professional venue and suits our meetings well, we find it necessary to increase the annual fee in order to support our on-going commitment to our members and remain at this venue.
We hope you like the new meeting format, which has seen the introduction of a panel discussion in addition to the selection of vibrant and informative speakers.
During 2017 we attracted the following speakers: Stella Jarvis, HMRC; Paul Bedford Head of Customs Policy; David Henig, DIT; Gary Horlick Attorney at Law, USA; Yves Melin Partner at Steptoe & Johnson LLP in Brussels; and Jeremy White, Barrister at Pump Court Tax Chambers.
The 2018 speakers who have provisionally confirmed are just as impressive and currently listed on the website.
Therefore the annual fee (due 1st January) will be £395.00 (+VAT) with the joining fee remaining at £100.00 (+VAT) for new members and guests at the National meetings increasing to £100.00 (+VAT). The membership fee entitles includes 2 people from a member company to attend each of the Nationals.
The Committee feel that the increases still reflect very good value for money comparable to other organisations and similar events and trust that you will agree and continue your membership and hopefully encourage other business acquaintances to join ACITA at this very exciting time.
