The first seven judges confirmed include Margaret Hodge, chairwoman of the Public Accounts Committee and outspoken critic of tax avoidance. Also confirmed is Christopher Hill, group CFO of FTSE 250-listed financial spread-betting business IG. John Whiting, tax director at the Office for Tax Simplification will also take part in the judging.

Jane Howard – partner, Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co
Andy Howell – partner, Taylor Wessing
Mark Lee – chairman, Tax Advice Network
Elspeth Orcharton – tax director, ICAS

More than 20 judges will be picked to go through the entries. New categories include Top 50 Team Awards, which recognise excellence by service line, including corporate finance, tax, pensions, and wealth management, and are open to firms within the Accountancy Age Top 50 league table. Individual awards include both ‘Young Practitioner’ and ‘Practitioner of the Year’ categories.

Shortlists will be revealed in late summer/early autumn.
