We all had a thoroughly great time at the Tolleys Tax Awards 2012 at London’s Hilton Park Lane Hotel. The event, now probably the biggest event in the ‘Tax Calendar’, was attended by over 700 guests – a full house.
We had our own table of 11 for our friends and clients. We had been nominated for the ‘Best Single Office Tax Practice Award’, which was a great achievement in our second full year of practising. Alas, we were unlucky on the night but maybe next year!
Many of our guests have already emailed to say how much they enjoyed themselves. The food was tasty (an achievement given the number of diners). Our entertainer and raconteur, the comedian and actor – Marcus Brigstocke, was a great choice and very funny. Marcus also presented the various tax awards to recognise excellence in the tax profession and it was great to see many of our friends take well-deserved awards, including Anthony Thomas – (President of the Chartered Institute Of Taxation) who received “The Tax Personality Of The Year Award”.
Some of our gathering then made their way to the post-awards casino entertainment (with ‘paper money’), fairground attractions, and the live jazz band. Two of our guests, Paul Walden and Derek Nicol from The Flying Music Group, had a great run on the black jack table and Paul also excelled on the large scalectrix circuit!
We hope to be back next year…
