FiscalReps, leading independent tax compliance specialists, are proud to announce that Client Specialist Alessia Mecozzi has been awarded the Little prize from ICAEW (The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales) in recognition of achieving first place globally in the Business Planning Taxation paper in June 2016.

The Little prize was established by ICAEW to perpetuate the memory of Leo T Little, editor of Accountancy for over 20 years. Over 1,300 students sat the Business Planning Taxation paper in June.  All of this year’s prizes will be presented by the President of ICAEW at the International ACA Prize Giving Ceremony at Chartered Accountants’ Hall in April 2017.

Chief Executive of FiscalReps, Mike Stalley FCA, commented:  “As an investor in education and training for our staff we are all extremely proud of Alessia’s achievement and congratulate her on achieving the highest mark globally of 94%.  We pride ourselves on recruiting and developing talented individuals and creating a work environment where education is encouraged and results are celebrated and rewarded. Having a strong, talented and motivated team is paramount to our success and underpins our aim of strengthening our global footprint’.

Dawn Patel, FCA, Training & CPD Manager at ICAEW said:  "We are very proud of all our students and I would like to personally congratulate Alessia on her achievements and wish her the best of luck with her remaining exams. The future certainly looks bright with such a promising stream of future chartered accountants coming through.”
