Fancy trying to win yourself some cash and Tolley goodies? 

I spotted on Twitter yesterday that ICAEW's Tax Faculty is running an essay competition in a bid to get some "fresh thinking" on old problems from students and young professionals under 30.

The deadline is midday on Monday 2 March 2015. The essay should be 1,500 to 3,000 words on one of the key issues that we have identified facing those running the UK tax system. 

The prizes, sponsored by Tolley, are: 

  • First prize – £1,000 cash, a set of Tolley Yellow and Orange Handbooks and a complete set of Tolley Annuals 
  • Three runner up prizes of £250 each plus a set of Tolley Yellow and Orange Handbooks 
  • A special £500 cash prize for the best entry from an undergraduate, who will be this year’s Tolley Scholar 

There are six titles, including: 

  • A person’s home may be their castle, but should the family home be taxed and if so how and when? 
  • The distinction between employment and self employment under tax law results in a significant difference in take home pay. Is this sustainable in a modern economy and if not, what is the alternative? 

Let us know if you're going to enter, and which title you're going to write on!
