In March 2014 I, Maria Elisa Turullols, brought HMRC to a First Tier Tax Tribunal (FTT), won and established legal precedent in this country in relation to the taxation of interim relief. I managed to achieve this despite not being a lawyer or a certified tax advisor.

It all started when I was an internal auditor and my employment was terminated by email with effect from the following day. As part of my every-day role and responsibility, I had raised protected disclosures to my employer at the time following the agreed internal...

Breakfast with Angeline

they are going to send all the money to one of the PA’s personal bank account, for her to take the money in cash from her bank account and bring it to the office to put it in the red envelopes.
We are giving one employee an additional full bonus, and then we expect that this person will take all that money in cash to do what? I do not think this is something so small, it sounds so dodgy that it can be perceived as something illegal, even if this money is fully used on the red envelopes, Caesar’s wife principle should apply.an email should be sent by the CEO, informing all employees, that they will get a red envelope the following day.
With all this, we have evidence of the payment approved by the CEO, the money been retrieved from the company bank by a person with legal powers to do so in presence of HR and another email informing the employees about the red envelope
The lesson from this real example is that, even a good gesture can be completely undermined and bring a company into trouble, if the way of doing it looks suspicious and dodgy. Since the recent bribery and corruption scandals (e.g.: GSK China, FIFA, etc) companies should pay more attention to cash payments. Doing the right thing in the right way it may take some effort. In this real experience this involved drafting official emails, the Finance Director appointment with the company bank, etc. This effort should be compared to the effort deployed explaining cash payments without much evidence on top of any reputational impact (regardless of whether the cash payment was for valid reasons or not).
how it would look like if it was to appear in a global newspaper and you had to provide an explanation to the media. I am still trying to find ways to explain the sizeable payment to the PA’s personal bank account for her to retrieve the money in cash….
