Taxation Awards 2023: we won Best Employer in Tax!

We’re thrilled to be the winners of Best Employer in Tax at the Taxation Awards 2023!

We were also proud to be shortlisted in two other Taxation Awards categories: Best Single Office Tax Practice and Best VAT/Indirect Tax Team.

  • Best Employer in Tax celebrated our people’s experiences and achievements at BKL. Our entry was commended as the best across all categories!
  • Best Single Office Tax Practice recognised our team’s expertise and client services across tax consultancy, personal tax, trusts and VAT.
  • Best VAT/Indirect Tax Team demonstrated our excellence in VAT, a highly specialist and complex area.

It gives us great pride to know that fellow tax professionals recognised our strength in three separate categories, as a result of what we’ve achieved as individuals and together.

We’re so pleased that our dedication, both in our day-to-day work and in collaborating on the award submissions, led to us becoming finalists among so many other leading firms.

These shortlistings followed our success at the 2022 Taxation Awards, when Tax Consultancy Manager Sam Inkersole won the Taxation’s Rising Star award. He was also featured in the latest Accountancy Age 35 Under 35. Sam has continued to progress at BKL, and we’re proud that he became a Senior Manager in April 2023. You can hear Sam’s career story in this video.

To ensure we were paying it forward to other winners, we sponsored the Tolley’s Award for Outstanding Contribution to Taxation in 2022-23 by an Individual. Well done to Dan Neidle, the worthy winner of this award.

Congratulations to our team and to our fellow winners and finalists across the tax industry. It was pleasure to celebrate with you at the Taxation Awards night on 18 May.
