The Guardian: City diary
Thursday May 27, 2004
Disappointment at Tuesday night's LexisNexis UK Tax Awards, where Shell was pipped to the best in-house tax team gong by BT. The oil giant (not quite as giant as we thought a few months back) denies it was asked to consider standing in if no one pitched up from BT, but declined as it has a problem with reserves. And bad news too for KPMG's Transfer Pricing Team which failed to win best international tax team. Still, as host Clive Anderson pointed out, they sound a top team for Sir Alex and Jason Ferguson.
