TORUS and TaxationWeb announce partnership
TORUS, the International Lawyers, Accountants and Taxation Consultants Association and TaxationWeb, the UK's largest independent tax portal, today announced an agreement to work together on advancing the levels of knowledge and understanding of international tax law.
The agreement will see TORUS (www.torus.org) support TaxationWeb's International Tax section (www.taxationweb.co.uk/international), with their members providing topical news and articles. The agreement is expected to enhance awareness of TORUS and its objectives, and increase the number of international tax advisers, lawyers, accountants and business consultants joining their organisation.
Announcing the working agreement earlier today, Mark McLaughlin, General Editor of TaxationWeb, said: "We are delighted to welcome TORUS to TaxationWeb. Their members will significantly enhance the international tax section of our website, which is becoming increasingly popular among visitors. We expect that this activity will bring TORUS to the attention of a greater numbers of consultants than ever before."
Brian Broadbridge, President of TORUS, added: "TaxationWeb is a constantly improving platform for tax information which meets highest professional standards. With the expertise of TORUS legal, accounting and taxation consultants in various European countries we will be able to contribute significantly to TaxationWeb's International Tax section."
Torus is an international association of independent firms of accountants, lawyers, tax advisors and specialist consultants, with members throughout Europe. It aims to ensure that its members have access to professional advice through the co-operation and expertise of fellow members or colleagues throughout Europe.
The Association has been formed to facilitate its members and their clients with direct personal access to information and guidance from local professional advisers, both domestically and internationally. Such unbridled access to professional advice had previously only been available to larger firms and organisations.
Torus members are able to Aprovide their clients - individuals as well as businesses - with a depth of professional advice only possible as a result of the combined experience of its members. Torus members meet regularly, attending workshops and regional events, where they can network with colleagues and exchange ideas, approaches and technical information from different jurisdictions. This close personal contact leads to obvious benefits for members and their clients.
Meetings are held throughout Europe and future meetings are planned for Amsterdam, Barcelona, Frankfurt and London.
Membership is available to individuals and small- to medium-sized firms. For details on membership please contact David Lambert at Hague Lambert, 15 Byrom Street, Manchester M3 4PF ; telephone (0044) (0)161 834 6066 ; email
