YORKSHIRE HMRC-handling and tax dispute specialist Independent Tax has enjoyed a successful start to 2018 gaining recognition at a regional, national and international level.

Lawyer International, a specialist magazine for the legal sector, chose Independent Tax as the recipient of its ‘Best Code 9 Team’ accolade in the 2018 Legal 100 guide, cementing the company’s position as a leader in its field on a global scale.

This was followed by the news that Independent Tax has been shortlisted for the Tax Team of the Year title in the 2018 Yorkshire Accountancy Awards and in the Best Tax Investigation Team category at the 2018 Tolley’s Taxation Awards, an industry award scheme. Both awards ceremonies take place this month.

Gary Brothers, the managing partner of Independent Tax, which is based at Brackenholme near Selby, said: “It has been an incredible start to the year for us.

“The fact that we’ve been recognised as leaders in our field at a regional, national and international level shows just how far the company has come in the five years since it was launched.

“We were thrilled to be nominated for the Legal 100 award by a law firm that we’ve worked with – we then topped the voting process to be named the best firm for this area work.

“The Legal 100 is the definitive guide to the firms and individuals considered to be the most competent within their respective areas of work and is published internationally, which means that we’re at the very forefront of handling Code 9 cases globally.

“Both the Yorkshire Accountancy Awards and Tolley’s Taxation Awards are held in high esteem. We’re very much looking forward to attending the awards ceremonies.”
