A string of ‘thank-you’ emails and cards showed that our guests really had a great night at the 2013 Taxation Awards. It was the best one yet!
The familiar Voice of the Balls (aka Alan Dedicoat) took us through the proceedings with his well-honed articulation. Comedian Tim Vine also acted as joint compere and presented the awards. He had our table in stiches, firing off his witty one-liners with effortless rapidity… “So I was getting into my car, and this bloke says to me “Can you give me a lift?” I said, “Sure, you look great, the world’s your oyster, go for it”.
The boy with the tape on his mouth also gave us a very clever and novel act as a break between the two halves of the awards ceremony.
Our table lapped it all up together with the tasty four-course dinner. As hosts we took great pleasure in seeing all the guests getting on so well with each other – no surprise really since they were all such lovely warm people!
We were proud to sponsor ‘Best tax practice in a regional firm’ and Patricia presented the award to ‘Bishop Fleming’, which mainly operates in the south west of England.
Our firm again made the shortlist for the ‘Best Tax Consultancy Team’ but alas we had to be content again to be a ‘runner up’. With three consecutive short listings, we are beginning to feel like a fiscal version of Kate Winslett!
