Two award nominations in one day for Centurion VAT Specialists


April 1st 2015 saw us celebrating after being shortlisted for two awards in one day! We did check it was no April Fool’s Day Trick. Pictured above is our team holding the Taxation award for the UK’s Best VAT Team which we won in 2013 so we thought we’d better dust it off as a Good Luck Charm for 2015!

Centurion VAT Specialists has been named as a finalist in the national 2015 Taxation Awards as well as in the Institute of Directors Wales, Director of the Year Awards.

Centurion has made it to the final three in the Indirect Tax Team category at the Taxation Awards, they line up alongside Grant Thornton UK and The VAT Consultancy for the highly-coveted prize. The winning entry will be announced on the night of Thursday 21 May at The London Hilton at Park Lane.

The Taxation Awards, having been introduced in 2001, have quickly become seen as a benchmark of excellence within the industry.

And there was more good news for us as Director Liz Maher discovered that she had been shortlisted in the Director in Small Business category of the Institute of Directors awards. The awards ceremony is held on the Friday 15 May at the SWALEC Stadium in Cardiff.

We truly believe this recognition is testament to Centurion’s growing reputation within the industry, and highlights the dedication of the company’s employees and the quality of the service we deliver to our clients across the UK and beyond.

Liz Maher, Director of Centurion VAT Specialists, said: “Being nominated for two awards is a fantastic achievement for everyone at Centurion, highlighting our high standards of service and the outstanding dedication of our team. We’re especially excited to have been recognised in the Taxation Awards again, having won our category in 2013.”
