Chris Campbell gives more details about the Tolley’s Taxation Awards and how you can vote for the ICAS Tax team.
What are the Tolley’s Taxation Awards 2023?
ICAS is delighted to have been shortlisted for the Tolley's Taxation Awards 2023. The Tolley’s Taxation Awards are very highly regarded within the tax profession and there are award categories covering a broad spectrum of the profession: professional practices (both large and small), specialist firms, and those working in-house or in the public sector. There are also awards for individuals and organisations who make a significant contribution to the profession.
The ICAS Tax Team has been shortlisted for the Tolley's Award for Outstanding Contribution to Taxation in 2022-23 by a Not-for-profit Organisation. We are really thrilled to be shortlisted for this category and it is a great recognition for the work that we carry out on behalf of our members each day.
This category is subject to a public vote of members of the tax profession and we would encourage of members, students and wider stakeholders to vote for the ICAS Tax team. The voting closes on 24 April and the winner will be announced at an event at the Royal Lancaster London on Thursday 18 May 2023.
Why have we been shortlisted for the award?
Our small Tax Team works on behalf our members, contributing to policy and influence across the UK. With diverse skills and experience, our team supports our members and works effectively with UK tax authorities and other tax stakeholders, particularly across the devolved nations.
As well as working with HM Revenue and Customs via various forums, we have a close relationship with the Scottish Government and have provided insight in developing Scottish tax policy since taxes were devolved. More recently, we are now being consulted by the Welsh Revenue Authority and other stakeholders in Wales, as the Welsh Government seeks to expand its devolved taxes remit.
In addition, ICAS has produced several thought leadership papers which have gained attention with the media, the public and across Government, including The role of Tax in getting to Net Zero and the ICAS Guide to Scottish Taxes.
ICAS tax webinars often attract 300-500 attendees with feedback emphasising that they take complicated issues and make them simple. ICAS also promotes its expert tax content to members, students, firms, non-members, regulators, standard setters and external stakeholders through its website, social media channels, magazine and email newsletters.
