James Cowper Kreston’s tax team were last night (18 May) the proud recipients of the prestigious Tolley’s Taxation Awards 2017 ‘Best International Tax Team of the Year’.
The Tolley’s Taxation Awards, hosted annually by Taxation Magazine, the authoritative voice for the UK’s tax profession, are recognised nationally as the mark of excellence within the sector.
Having been a finalist at the awards in 2016, the James Cowper Kreston team went one better this year winning the award against strong opposition. Judges of the awards were particularly impressed with the expertise within the team and range of services they are able to offer to their international clients, the calibre of which is not usually available from a mid-tier firm. The investment made by the firm to recruit tax specialists with the language skills to be able to communicate with international clients in their home languages was also applauded.
Commenting on the team’s success, Sharon Bedford, Head of Business Tax at James Cowper Kreston, said: “We were thrilled to be shortlisted, but now we’re delighted to have been recognised, against some of the best teams in the sector, to win such a distinguished award. It’s a wonderful achievement that reflects the investments we’ve made to provide first-rate services for all our clients.”
Robert Holland, James Cowper Kreston’s Managing Partner, added: “This is a magnificent achievement for our tax team. Winning this award justifies the time and effort that each team member has made to consistently deliver a premium service to our clients, which has been proven to be one of the best available in the UK. Well done to everyone!”
