September 2015

This month we reveal the second accountancy rich list. This year's list commends the entrepreneurs: those who have created growth and value in industries as diverse as aviation, football, car sales, finance and leisure. Elsewhere, we analyse the anatomy of a merger. Simon Gallagher and Jon Randall tell Julia Irvine how they are steering century-old Moore Stephens through its tie-up with Chantrey Vellacott. Maragaret Hodge and Phillip Booth go head-to-head over tax avoidance in our monthly debate and we take a deeper look at the calls for a review of HMRC. In the technical section Liz Loxton looks at the questions raised by the FRC's report on the standard of reporting from smaller listed and AIM-quoted companies. Finally, we help you relax with a review of the best spas - whether you're looking to escape a needy client or simply want a well-deserved rest.
