The CIOT is very proud of Anne Redston and LITRG successes at the Taxation Awards The Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) is very proud that Council member Anne Redston won ‘Tax Personality of the Year’ and CIOT’s Low Incomes Tax Reform Group (LITRG) won ‘Best Tax Website’ at the LexisNexis Taxation Awards.
The comedian and impressionist Rory Bremner hosted the awards ceremony. When announcing the ‘Tax Personality of the Year’, Bremner said it had been awarded to Anne Redston because of her role as an adviser to Geoff and Diana Jones of Arctic Systems and her article about the case, Small Business in the Eye of the Storm.
The CIOT President, Peter Kempster, comments: “Anne’s contribution to the debate on the taxation of small businesses has been expert and insightful. The CIOT is delighted that one of our Council members has received this well-deserved accolade.”
The LITRG exists to give a voice to those people on low incomes who battle against the tax/benefits laws and systems that support them. LITRG is chaired by John Andrews.
On winning the award, John Andrews said: “I am very pleased that the tireless work of Sue Jones, our Webmaster, has been recognised. It is no easy task to keep on top of a large website when changes to tax law and practice happen so frequently.”
The Taxation Awards were held at The London Hilton on Park Lane on Tuesday 24 May.
