The awards recognise the contribution the business, professional and voluntary communities make to helping HMRC run the UK’s tax system.
Julie Hughff, tax partner at KPMG in the UK, has been awarded one of Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs’ (HMRC) first ever tax transparency awards.
In its announcement, HMRC said Julie Hughff was given the award for “persuading clients of the benefits of good relationships between business and tax administrations, the early clarification of key business issues and her open-minded approach to the resolution of technical issues. Julie is also recognised for the significant contribution she made to the 2006 Review of Links with Business.”
Alastair McLeish, head of tax and pensions at KPMG in the UK, said: “We are immensely proud of Julie. Being an inaugural winner of these new awards from HMRC is a great honour and is testament to the vast amount of work she has done in this field.”
Julie Hughff commented: “I am delighted to receive this award from HMRC and I look forward to continuing to work towards improving relationships between businesses and tax administrations as I believe this is vital in improving the competitiveness of the UK tax system”
