Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Picture tax maestros Mike Warburton or John Whiting rushing into a phone booth, spinning around and around very fast, only to emerge resplendent in cape and underpants on the outside of their trousers.
Quite a thought, eh?
Well Christian Aid’s policymakers (and marketing gurus) can certainly envisage such a sight after launching its “alternative tax award” for Tax Superhero of the Year.
It’s been launched to highlight “the tremendous potential accountants have to change the world for the better by helping developing countries collect more of the billions of dollars in tax they are owed”.
It has already awarded the Big Four and the IASB with the joint prize of having the Greatest Potential for Tax Reform.
While some advisers might consider HMRC’s Dave Hartnett the arch-villain, it will be interesting to see whether Christian Aid has a totally different take in things.
