London, 1 October, 2009 – LexisNexis today announced that they have signed an exclusive contract with Rebecca Benneyworth, one of the country’s leading tax lecturers, to supply her services exclusively from 2010.

This announcement is a major boost to LexisNexis’ tax CPD programmes.  Rebecca Benneyworth is a highly respected lecturer and author who contributes to a wide range of journals including Taxation Magazine.  She is also consultant editor to Tolley’s Taxwise. Tolley CPD seminars run in 17 locations across the UK and provide ten three-hour seminars on general and specialist tax and accountancy subjects.  From 2010 Tolley will be the only national programme to contain a line up of the country’s top speakers including Rebecca Benneyworth, Chris Jones, Robert Jamieson and Tim Good.

Chris Jones, Director of Tax and Accountancy, LexisNexis, said: “We are delighted to team up with Rebecca Benneyworth for our extensive tax CPD training programme.  Rebecca’s input has so far proved invaluable, based on the overwhelming feedback from delegates.  It is clear that tax professionals appreciate the practical approach Rebecca takes to the subject matter, providing information not just on what has changed but also on how that affects the advice that must be given to clients”.

Rebecca Benneyworth said: "I have worked with Chris Jones and the team at Tolley for many years and like me they all share a passion for high quality practical CPD training. I am delighted to be joining such a strong team where I can use my own skills and experience to further enhance the services offered to the tax profession.  The national Tolley CPD Seminars programme is by far the strongest offering in the market as it captures the talents of the UK's most eminent and entertaining speakers. I am proud to have been part of the success story so far and by joining them on an exclusive basis from 2010 I look forward to further shaping and developing the face of CPD training. This is a very exciting opportunity."
