Tax charity honoured at tax institute's Savoy lunch

David Brodie, director of Taxaid, which provides tax advice to those in need, has been awarded an honorary fellowship by Chartered Institute of Taxation in recognition of the charity's achievements.

The award was presented to Brodie by CIoT president Robert Jamieson who hosted the institute’s annual president’s luncheon today, which was held at the Savoy in London.

Brodie, a member of the English ICA, set up Taxaid in 1992 to provide help and assistance in tax matters to those who cannot afford professional advice.

Accepting the award, Brodie said it represented an acknowledgement for everyone involved in the work of Taxaid – in particular the many volunteers who gave up their free time to carry out the work of the charity.

He also thanked the CIoT and other organisations for their financial and practical support for Taxaid.

The prestigious lunch was attended by around 100 people, including representatives from the tax practitioner world, the Government, Customs and the Revenue.
