Game, set and match to PwC

WimbledonTS would like to offer its warm congratulations to PricewaterhouseCoopers for winning our very special competition.

Unfortunately it’s not the ‘best present given to TS’ award. That still goes to Deloitte for the Christmas champers. No, this is the far more coveted ‘first accountancy firm to put out a press release linking the start of Wimbledon with personal tax’ award.

You may have heard this one before, Accountancy Age has even done a few times, but with Wimbledon starting on Monday, some people like to rent their houses out, or start a little sideline – perhaps strawberries and cream from their front garden – to earn a little extra cash. Many of these people, amazingly, fail to declare the cash to the tax man but the Revenue is apparently onto them.

Well done again to PwC, who pipped KPMG to the post this year. Unfortunately the only prize that comes with this award is kudos.

TS quite fancies some strawberries and champagne now. Ok, we’ll just skip to the champers.
