Taking Stock - Revenue breaks all ties with formality.
The challenges of modern finance are hard whether you work in the private or public sector but when it comes to sartorial elegance that's where the real hang-ups develop.
As parts of the new entente cordiale between tax advisers and the Inland Revenue, Solomon Hare, Bristol’s stalwart of the mid-tier, exchanged four members of staff with the local Revenue office so they could get a clearer, less biased idea of each other’s job.
And was it a difficult transformation for the Revenue guys? An insider at Solomon’s tells TS: ‘The number one problem was their surprise at having to wear a tie.’
No ties at the Revenue? Standards are surely slipping.
