Publishing House

We are a new media company offering a full range of services. We produce high quality, niche publications within the finance and tech sectors and still firmly believe that print is king. This is recognised within the number of award-winning and well-known magazines and websites we produce across a variety of sectors and why in 2013 we saw the opportunity in Tech City launching the first magazine to represent the area – Tech City News. We also recognised a gap in the personal finance sector and launched Every Investor.

Of course the success of the publishing division of TPG wouldn’t be possible without the expertise of the journalists behind the products and this is second to none. Award-winning in their own right, the TPG editors and journalists are renowned for being the best in their sectors.

In addition to the publications below, our customer publishing division, Inspire Publishing, has experience in putting together products for a wide variety of clients and organisations, from large scale products and websites for government through to trade association magazines, customer titles and even monetising websites and organising events for our partners.

Ramesh Sharma: CEO's thought of the week. Taxman’s ‘accomplices’ paid £400k

Can you believe HMRC paid out £400k to individuals last year who reported friends and family whom they suspected of tax dodging!

This is the highest amount paid to date as part of a rewards scheme setup a few of years ago. What I would be interested in knowing is how many calls did HMRC receive?

What are the criteria that HMRC require before they start a full blown investigation after getting a tip off?

How many people that didn’t like the fact that the neighbour just parked a brand new car in the driveway, or had that large extension built called HMRC?

How many friends (that you thought were friends) reported each other just because they were not doing as well?

Interesting enough the majority of the calls came from, in no particular order, ex-wives and husbands or former work colleagues.

What I’m trying to say is that paying out cash for information feels like a society that is spying on each other, is this what we want? I personally am not comfortable with this sort of arrangement.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like the idea that someone is getting away with not paying their fair share of tax – but to get everyone to spy on each other must raise some serious questions.

When you consider that the scheme pays between £50- £1000 depending on the size of the haul that HMRC is able to recover, then it’s not a huge amount of people that have actually been caught.

Not surprisingly HMRC don’t publicise this little earner… I wonder if it’s paid tax free.
