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.
We were very pleased to assist as tax advisors to CN on the sale of its two radio stations – The Bay and Lakeland Radio.
An extract from Radio News says
“The Bay covers North Lancashire and South Cumbria and reaches 85,000 listeners every week from its broadcast centre in Lancaster. Kendal-based Lakeland Radio transmits across the South Lakes with 16,000 weekly listeners.
Ashley Tabor OBE, founder & executive president of Global, said: “I’m pleased to announce our acquisition of The Bay and Lakeland Radio. This deal will give us coverage in new areas of the UK and means we can take our radio brands to more listeners.”
Robin Burgess OBE, chairman of CN Group, said: “We believe that both The Bay and Lakeland radio stations’ future growth and success is best placed in a focused radio operation. We are delighted Global has seen the success, and future potential, the staff and management team have built thus far. Through Global’s scale and expertise, we believe both stations have a bright future and we wish them the very best for the future.”
The deal is expected to complete at the end of November 2017.”
I was honoured to be featured in Tax Journal’s ‘One Minute Feature’ in the 29 September 2017 edition.
A copy of the feature is shown below:
We are proud to be able to announce that after some months assisting with the tax structuring advice of this deal and advising the two seller shareholders, Paul Walden and Derek Nicol, the sale of 60% of Flying Music Group to Kilimanjaro Live went though on 19 July 2017

We were very honoured and excited to sponsor the ‘Best Individual Performance Of The Season’ award at the 2016/17 West Ham United Player Awards evening.
It was great to see the winner this year was James Collins (aka ‘Ginger Pele) for his defiant defensive display against Swansea City which gave ‘us’ a much needed three points and a clean sheet.
It was a fantastic night and our hosts, Tony Cottee and Bianca Westwood, proved an entertaining partnership. We loved the expanse and setting of the Intercontinental Hotel at the O2.
Our guests loved mingling with the players and they enjoyed their ‘photo shoot’ with the first team squad.
Definitely a night to remember…
