UK Chamber of Shipping
30 Park Street

The UK Chamber of Shipping will be hosting an evening event on the tax treatment of UK shipping businesses.  The centrepiece will be a talk by Victor Baker, of HMRC’s tonnage tax policy unit, looking at how the UK Corporation Tax regime has evolved to reflect the special circumstances of the shipping industry – from the development of capital allowances in the 19th Century to support investment in steamships, through to the introduction of Tonnage Tax in 2000 and the consequent revival of the UK merchant fleet.  The talk will be followed by a drinks reception, providing an opportunity for everyone interested in the UK’s tax regime for shipping to network with one another and explore what the future may hold.
