TakingStock – Chas gets a cut above the rest.

You have to be careful when you’re an accountant, especially when you’re a tax expert, that you don’t over look taxable benefits that you should have declared.

Chas Roy-Chowdhury, head of taxation over ACCA, may be a little nervous over his latest hair-raising media exploits.

Invited to be interviewed by the BBC about tax cuts Chas ended up with a hair cut.

The journos whisked him off to a branch of Toni and Guy where the tax guru was forced into a wash, trim and blow dry while fathoming the complexities of taxation on camera.

But should he declare this freebie to the taxman? Chas is definitely looking better and colleagues may argue this is a benefit to everyone over at Lincoln’s Inn.

Of course the interesting thing is whether anyone saw the newly coiffed Chas on the tv.

So early was it on Sunday morning that everyone else would have been dealing with their own bad hair day.
