I have posted my speaker interview for Accountex 2019 – enjoy…
I was honoured and thrilled to become Deputy president of the Chartered Institute of Taxation (‘CIOT’) at this years AGM on 21 May 2019, which was held at One Great George Street, Westminster.
It was an immense pleasure to work with the outgoing CIOT President, Ray McCann (see below)
I look forward to working with new 2019/20 President, Glyn Fullelove and Vice President Susan Ball
We all had a fantastic time at West Ham United’s 2018/19 Player Awards.We were very lucky to have Issa Diop and Arthur Masuaku as guests on our table, who were great company
PRTC was immensely proud to present the ‘Best Individual Performance’ award to Declan Rice fo this fantastic performance against Arsenal at the London Stadium on 12 January 2019.
And Sky’s Jeff Stelling hosted the evening superbly in his own inimitable style..
Once again, we were proud to host a VIP evening at this year’s Proms In The Park.
With over 40,000 revellers singing the wonderful Proms classics in a frenzy of Pomp and Circumstance, it was a sublimel experience. We were also treated to some great performances from a wide range of musical genres. The line-up included Gladys Knight, Matt Goss, Joseph Cajella, Josh Groban, and Lisa Stansfield.
We all had a fantastic night and full marks to the BBC for laying on a wonderful VIP experience. Events like this make you ‘Proud To Be British!’, allthough there were a number of ‘Remainers’ proudly displaying EU flags….
Here are some of our photos from the evening:
We were so pleased to sponsor the most lovely adorable pony – called Rush – who recently joined the Beneath The Wood Sanctuary in Wales. He was brought to the Sanctuary as a sad abandoned pony and we just felt it was right to help with his upkeep and well-being.
We absolutely love the great and kind work done by Sasha at the Sanctuary, which looks after dogs with behavioural problems and other animals needing a safe haven.
You can follow this wonderful Sanctuary on Twitter at @BTWsanctuary and any help you can give them would be most appreciated by Sasha.
Of course, Rush could not resist posing for us -what a poser – well done lad!
I was really thrilled to win the ‘Tax Writer of the Year’ award at this year’s Taxation Awards, which was held at the Hilton On Park Lane in London.
It was a great night as my dear friend – Robert Jamieson – also picked up the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Thank you to everyone involved…
We were both thrilled and honoured to sponsor the club’s Player’s Player of the Season award 2018. This is a very special accolade since it is chosen by the team. This year the award was given to Marko Arnautovic (who took two other awards, thus bringing him a well-deserved ‘hat-trick’ on the night!)
The evening was held-together expertly by compere’s Gabby Logan and ex-Hammer centre-half Alvin Martin.
It was wonderful to see Hammer legend Ken Brown receive this years Lifetime Achievement Award. We will always remember his humbling speech – what a true gentlemen.
We all had a terrific night on our table with great banter and camaraderie amongst our guests, who were
– Alan Janes (Producer – The Buddy Show)
– Barry Jefferd (Chartered accountant and Tax adviser)
– Dave Wright (Publisher – Bloomsbury Professional)
– James Hughes (Recruitment/consultant)
– Joanne Baum (Beauty Therapist)
– Roy Smith (Owner – Roy Smith Building Maintenance)
We were also joined by Marko Arnautovic and Josh Cullen – who were both great fun to talk to.
A big thanks to everyone at the Club for making it a highly memorable evening
Here are some of our photos from the evening…
Tolley’s TAXATION magazine celebrated its 90th Birthday in October 2017. We were proud to make a contribution to the 90th anniversary edition of the magazine, which asked various tax pundits what they would see in the 100th anniversary edition.
We also attended a great TAXATION party at The British Library, where we sampled the tasty 90th birthday cake.
