Do you live in Scotland? A call for volunteers for a focus group!

Published on 11 December 2019

A team of researchers is carrying out research into public awareness about Scottish income tax and requests volunteers to take part in a focus group.*

This follows the publication of a paper by the Scottish Taxes Policy Forum in October 2018 and the two polls commissioned by the Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) in 2018 and 2019.

The team is arranging a focus group for eight people to discuss their awareness about the changes to income tax in Scotland. You do not need any special knowledge of income tax in order to take part.

The focus group will take place on 30 January 2020, at a venue in central Glasgow. It is expected that the discussion will last two hours.

Attendees will be provided with refreshments and a token of appreciation for their participation, which is intended to go towards local travel costs.

If you would be interested in attending the focus group, please contact jwalker [at] litrg.org.uk or jriccomini [at] icas.com for more information.

* The research team consists of Joanne Walker (LITRG); Justine Riccomini (ICAS); Anouk Berthier; Rachel Findlay (Napier University)

The focus group is being carried out with support from the Chartered Institute of Taxation and the Low Incomes Tax reform Group, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland and the Fraser of Allander Institute
