ATT picks up prestigious tax award

The Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT) has been honoured for Outstanding Contribution to Taxation in 2022-23 by a Not-for-profit Organisation at the annual Tolley’s Taxation Awards.
The Association picked up the award yesterday (18 May) after topping a public vote ahead of six other organisations. The gong, presented by Andrew Hubbard, editor in chief of Taxation magazine, was accepted by ATT Technical officers Helen Thornley, Emma Rawson and Steven Pinhey, along with recently retired former colleague Will Silsby.


Other guests at the awards ceremony at the Royal Lancaster in London, which was hosted by comedian Miles Jupp, included ATT Technical Steering Group chair Senga Prior, vice chair Jon Stride, ATT president David Bradshaw, former presidents Jeremy Coker and Graham Batty and Katherine Lindley, ATT council member and chair of the Finance Steering Group.


Past and present members of ATT were also represented elsewhere in the awards. Ele Theochari, a member of ATT’s Council, was shortlisted for the Rising Star award, while Will Silsby, who retired in December after over 10 years as an ATT technical officer, made the final eight for Tax Mentor of the Year.


Jane Ashton, ATT chief executive, said:


“I’m over the moon that ATT has won this award, in what was a very strong competition filled with worthy winners.


“It is reward for all the team’s hard work over the last year and we’re so grateful to all those who voted for us.


“Our congratulations also go to all the other winners and nominees, who should all be very proud of their achievements.”
