Professional audiences

What’s on offer?

A 30-40 minute online talk will be given by Isaac Delestre, Research Economist at IFS. Afterwards, there will be 20 minutes for you to ask your questions on the topic to Isaac in a Q&A session.

What’s it about?

Recent decades have witnessed falling corporation tax rates across the developed world. In the UK, the main rate of corporation tax has fallen from over 50% in the 1970s to just 19% today. In this lecture IFS research economist Isaac Delestre explores the global trends that have driven these changes: asking, who ultimately bears the burden of corporation taxes in a globalised world and why some multinational companies seem to pay so little.

Who’s leading the event?

Isaac Delestre, IFS Research Economist, will give the presentation. The event will be chaired by Heidi Karjalainen, IFS Research Economist.
