How to lose popularity in the tax world

Adrian Walker could find himself alongside HMRC enforcer Dave Hartnett as one of the most unpopular men in accountancy, after talking at length about cheeky tax schemes that have been set up for the rich and famous on the Beeb’s Money Programme last night.

The Jefferson Wells tax director stuck up for the Rev in its fight against other accounting firms that have the temerity to use ‘artificial’ tax deals for their clients, something that the Beeb said JW didn’t do.

‘Adrian Walker’s an accountant whose firm is dead against artificial avoidance tricks’, the presenter opined. ‘But he knows all about how they worked.’

Well bully for him. A few noses may well be out of joint among the Big Four this morning, TS thinks.
