Corporate tax expert Pete Miller has received national recognition from the Chartered Institute of Taxation, (CIOT) the leading professional body for tax in the UK.
The co-owner of tax consultancy The Miller Partnership in New Walk, Leicester, he is to receive the CIOT’s Award of Certificate of Merit for his contribution to education and conference lecturing.
Pete lectures nationally to accountants and lawyers all over the country, and locally as guest lecturer at De Montfort University. He is passionate about education and sits on the Institute’s Education Committee and on a number of technical sub-committees.
Professionally he is also instrumental in helping reshape UK taxation policy though CIOT’s consultations with HM Revenue & Customs.
Most notably Pete was among tax advisers who succeeded in getting changes to Entrepreneurs’ Relief introduced in 2015 revised and backdated so that its anti-avoidance measures were targeted more accurately and fairly.
The Award of Certificate of Merit was introduced by the CIOT’s council in 2010 for both members and non-members who have played a significant role in the workings of the institute.
Pete said: “It was a wonderful surprise to learn that I am to receive this award.
“It’s a great honour – especially as this recognition has come from my fellow tax professionals.
“I am a great supporter of the CIOT and the role the institute plays in educating and informing people about how the UK tax system works.”
Pete will be presented with the award at an evening reception at the Darwin Centre of the Natural History Museum in London on Tuesday October 11.
