Ian Luder to be presented to capital's people

The new Lord Mayor of London, chartered tax adviser and accountant Ian Luder, will be presented to the people of the capital this weekend.

The city's 681st Lord Mayor's Show will take place on Saturday (8 November). It will include a Worshipful Company of Tax Advisers float, on a vehicle lent by RAF Squadron 101. Its display will feature representations of more than 50 taxes past and present, such as window tax, hat duty, hair powder duty, and surtax (appearing as a knight in armour).

The float will be near the front of the procession, which is scheduled to start at 11am and will cover 1.7 miles of the streets in the Square Mile.

Alderman Luder is a partner at Grant Thornton, where he specialises in the tax affairs of professional partnerships and their partners, professional institutions and charities.

He is a liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Tax Advisers (of which is a founder member) and was elected lord mayor in late September, after completing a year in office as sheriff of the City of London. He will take up his latest role with effect from Friday (7 November).

Mr Luder served on the council of the Chartered Institute of Taxation from 1983 to 1997, and was president in 2004-2005.

More details about the Lord Mayor's Show are available on the event's official website.
