HMRC executive chair knighted for services to taxpayers and the tax system

Former HMRC executive chair and permanent secretary Ed Troup has received a knighthood in the 2018 honours list

Edward Troup,  HMRC outgoing executive chair and permanent secretary, has been knighted in the New Year’s honours list.

Troup received the knighthood for his public service to taxpayers and the tax system.

He stepped down from this role after five years at HMRC. During this time, he worked as tax assurance commissioner, head of former business group central tax and strategy, and head of profession. In 2016, he took over as chair of HMRC’s board.

Alongside the HMRC chief executive Jon Thompson, Troup worked through one of the most challenging periods at HMRC with the planning of Making Tax Digital and a period of massive organisational change.

Prior to joining HMRC in 2012, his endeavours included advising Gordon Brown on corporate tax policy. He was previously a partner at Simmons & Simmons.

Jim Harra, previously HMRC’s tax assurance commissioner and director general customer for strategy and tax design, will succeed Troup as HMRC’s executive chair and permanent secretary

Troup is just one of many people in and connected to the accountancy profession to be awarded OBEs.

Sarah Churchman, PwC’s head of diversity, inclusion, and employee wellbeing, has been awarded an OBE. It recognises her work in establishing the Big Four firm’s diversity and inclusion team 15 years ago and leading its efforts to drive more diversity throughout the firm.

Since then, PwC has continued working towards this goal, signing the Women in Finance Charter in 2016 and promoting gender diversity progress in the face of Brexit uncertainty.
