Members of the judging panel included recent British Accountancy Awards Outstanding Contribution winner Paul Aplin, Tax Aid's Rosina Pullman and Taxation's Mike Truman. HMRC's panel members were Jim Harra, Ruth Owen and Jennie Granger.
The recipients were:
- Public Protection Division of Blackpool Council - for its support of the Blackpool Holiday Industry taskforce launched in July 2013;
- Karen Thomson, Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals and member of HMRC's Administrative Burdens Advisory Board - for helping to ensure that the impact of Real Time Information (RTI) on employers and their payroll processes was minimal;
- Philip Paur, Deloitte - for his contribution to the development and delivery of HMRC's policy and operational delivery on expatriate taxes;
- Brian Palmer, AAT - for his dedication to transparency, including being instrumental in driving HMRC's decision to publish information about post and contact centre performance.
The awards were presented by David Gauke, who is quoted by Accountancyage:
"There is some excellent work going on between HMRC and the tax community. By listening to and working with tax professionals HMRC can make the tax system in the UK as simple and transparent as possible."A fair way to go though methinks!
Tax does have to be taxing.
