In-house tax leader: nominations invited

printer Mail


How about putting your corporate clients forward for an award?  This year sees the 20th running of the Taxation Awards with an award ceremony taking place on 14 May at the London Hilton. Your firm may of course have already entered (I’m pleased to say that entries to date are at a record level), but have you considered going a bit further and nominating the head of your client’s in house tax team? We have a separate category for best in-house leader and nominations are still open for a few more days. Full details of how to enter are on the awards website here.

I’ve been asked whether or not the permission of the individual who you are nominating needs to be obtained before you submit the entry. We are quite happy for you so seek his or her approval but that is not essential if you would rather the nomination comes as a surprise. If somebody is shortlisted who hasn’t been approached we will ask them to confirm that they are happy for their name to appear on the shortlist before it is published. There is nothing to stop individual in-house team leaders nominating themselves or members of their team putting their boss forward.

This is only the second year for this category. We had a good response last year but would really like to cement this as the award to which all in-house tax leaders aspire. So why not take a few minutes during your next coffee break to think about who you might put forward.

I’d be happy to answer any questions you might have.
