Top UK accountancy and business advisory firm Johnston Carmichael has won a prestigious tax industry award. The firm's Private Client Tax team took home the award for ‘Best Private Client Tax Practice’ at the Tolley’s Tax Awards 2024. These coveted awards recognise excellence within the tax profession across the UK.

Led by Partner and Head of Private Client Tax Alexandra Docherty, the practice was praised by judges at the event, held at the Hilton London Metropole on 16 May, for how it puts clients “at the heart” of all its work.

The award win comes as the team enjoys an impressive year, growing to a headcount of 61, making it one of the largest private client tax practices in the UK.

The private client team’s turnover also grew year-on-year by 11.5% in the firm’s last financial year, ending 31 May 2023.

Alex commented, “Thrilled to have won the accolade of ‘Best Private Client Tax Practice’ with the team. The judges commented that they recognised from our submission that we put the client at the heart of everything we do,  which is testament to the dedication and care provided by the team, who always try and go above and beyond for their clients.”

The firm’s Head of Tax Susie Walker, who has worked in a number of senior roles in the industry for over three decades, was also nominated for a Lifetime Achievement award at the event.

Tolley’s Taxation Awards encompasses a range of categories covering the whole of the tax profession including professional practices of all sizes, specialist firms, and those working in-house or in the public sector.
