New Linked In Tax Network - Tax Technology People

Tuesday, 19 August 2008

By Simon Godley

This is a brief announcement that I have set up a new Group on Linked In, specifically for people who work in the area of tax technology. This is a rather experimental project at the moment, and it will be interesting to see if generates a critical mass of people in the sector. It is primarily for tax technology / tax software execs based in the UK, although it is open to non-UK members. I discovered that there were already a couple of tax technology Groups on Linked In generated in the US, but as with the broader tax market, the Atlantic does seem to split the tax technology world into two distinct people populations.

I have had my profile on Linked In for c.2 years now, but don't feel that I have really maximised its networking potential and functionality, hence this initiative.

The purpose of the 'Tax Technology People' Group, is mostly for networking in the sector. I guess it enables tax technology specialists to see who else is in their market (if they are interested), and possibly even to generate contact / debate between people with a common career interest. I am slightly sceptical about the latter purpose, but we will see.

Only people who have their profile on Linked In can join the group, otherwise Linked In as an enterprise wouldn't benefit. So if you are on Linked In, and you work in the field of tax technology / software, please join. If you are not on Linked In, have a look at setting up an account, I think it's a good business networking site with a good level of privacy options built in.

And of course, I would welcome any thoughts or feedback on the Tax Technology People group.
