We've Been Shortlisted for a WriteMark Plain English Award!

Posted Thursday, 12 August 2010 by Brena Smith 

Fabulous news this morning: Our website has been shortlisted in the 2010 WriteMark Plain English Awards Best Plain English Website, Private Sector category! Kiwitax has always been about making tax and accounting clear and easy to understand so being shortlisted in this category is a huge honour and a very pleasing confirmation that we're getting it right.

So what's this about? From the WriteMark's Plain English Awards website...

Plain English is a style of writing in which the language, structure, and presentation of a document all work together to help the reader. A document written in plain English is easy to read, understand, and act upon after just one reading.

Plain English allows people to participate in government, commercial, legal, and leisure activities more effectively because they can understand the information presented to them. Plain English also has proven benefits for organisations that use it in their publications — including significant cost savings.

The movement to replace ‘gobbledygook’ in official and business documents with plain English began in Britain in the 1970s. The plain English movement now involves government agencies, public and private sector businesses, corporations, consultants, voluntary organisations, and networking groups throughout the world.

The finalists and winners will be announced at an awards evening at Parliament on 3 September. Wish us luck!
