Local firm selected to participate in government review

Countrywide Tax & Trust Corporation appears alongside Prime Minister Theresa May in The Parliamentary Review – a series of documents published by Westminster Publications Ltd with the aim of sharing knowledge and raising standards.

Established by former minister The Rt Hon David Curry in 2010, The Parliamentary Review’s release is now a key fixture in the political calendar.

Countrywide Tax & Trust Corporation features alongside the Prime Minister and a small number of outstanding organisations in a document that looks back on the year in the legal sector and Westminster. The main aim of the Review is to showcase best practice as a learning tool for the public and private sector.

Clive Ponder TEP, Director of Countrywide stated: ‘We are honoured to have been selected to appear in the Parliamentary Review as it is such a prestigious publication, in particular in its inaugural year for Law & Justice. It is a true reflection of the hard work and commitment of our staff to be chosen. We have always strived to be an example for best practice across the industry, and we will continue to provide technological advancements through our Countrywide Legacy Software to make this possible for ourselves and others who want to improve productivity and customer service.”

Across all policy areas, The Parliamentary Review is sent to over half a million leading policymakers, stakeholders in industry and other relevant individuals. The articles in the Review act as both a blueprint for success and a template for reform.

The Prime Minister commented that ‘this year’s Parliamentary Review follows a significant year in British politics’ and this is reflected in the articles from leading journalists and best practice representatives alike.

The PM’s former cabinet colleague, Sir Eric Pickles, Chairman of the Review, said “it has never been more important for the government to hear the views of business and the public sector in a constructive forum. It is also a vital time to share best practice and progress.”

The Parliamentary Review’s executive director Daniel Yossman concurred, saying “Countrywide Tax & Trust Corporation and other hardworking organisations from across the country have come together to make the Review possible.

“Sharing knowledge and insight with both peers and government is essential work and I am delighted that this year’s Review will reach every corner of the British economy.

“It’s always a real joy to hear from policy makers who tell me that something they have read in the Review has had an effect on their thinking.

“It is my belief that innovation is contagious, if only it is given the platform to spread. It is the Review’s purpose to provide this platform and I am confident we are fulfilling it.”
