Tax Problem Question Competition
The 2020 competition attracted 79 entries and the standard was generally very high. As a reminder, the question can be found here.
We have awarded the following prizes:
Winner (£750 and a mini-pupillage if desired): Charles Jenkinson
Second place (£200): Constantine Fraser
Joint third place (£150 each): Ruilin Fang and Carola Binney
Commended: Michael Shin, Bhaskar Harish Sai, Harry Bithell, Samuel Glover and Hwai Zher Kee
Details of the 2021 competition will be posted here in the autumn of this year.
As before, it will not be necessary to have any knowledge of the subject area and entrants will only be required to read limited materials. Answers will be limited to 750-1,000 words.
Entrants must be studying at a UK university/college or have completed their studies at a UK university/college within the past three years (applicants do not necessarily need to have been studying law) but must not have commenced a training contract or pupillage. Each entry should be the work of a single author (so no joint entries are allowed). For the avoidance of doubts, those who entered the 2020 competition are allowed (and encouraged) to enter the 2021 competition.
Answers should be sent to Pupils@pumptax.com in Microsoft Word or PDF format. The covering email should state the entrant’s full name, present (or most recent) university/college and contact details. All submissions will be acknowledged.
