Legal Alert – Taxand Honoured with 5 Awards at The ITR European Tax Awards 2014

Taxand, the world’s largest organisation of tax advisors to multinational businesses, has been awarded “European Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year” by the International Tax Review (ITR) magazine, at its tenth annual European Tax Awards in London on 21 May 2014.

Following a record-breaking 31 nominations, Taxand has also been honoured with 2 national and 2 regional deal-based awards demonstrating increasing cross-service line industry recognition. For the fourth year running, Taxand South Africa received “National Tax Firm of the Year” and scooped “Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year” award for the third consecutive year. Taxand Finland and Taxand Russia were awarded “European Media & Entertainment Deal of the Year” and “European Energy Tax Deal of the Year” for their client work, respectively.

The awards are determined following a combination of in-depth research by the ITR’s editorial team and consultation with tax executives, tax advisors and lawyers to gain their perspective on the ground-breaking work. Submissions from firms were also a vital part of the research.

Frederic Donnedieu de Vabres, Chairman of Taxand commented: “To be nominated for a record-breaking 31 awards truly demonstrates Taxand’s cross-service line commitment to delivering quality tax advice and client service.” Antoine Glaize, Taxand global TP & business restructuring service line co-leader: “To win the ‘European Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year’ award is testament to the hard work and expertise that the Taxand team consistently deliver to clients.

Transfer pricing has become an increasingly complex aspect of global taxation for MNCs and it was identified as the most challenging aspect of global taxation by respondents in the Taxand Global Survey 2014. With BEPS bringing more uncertainty in the immediate future of the international tax framework, Taxand has proven itself again, to be to be a highly nowledgeable and trustworthy authority helping MNCs to be forward facing and proactive.”
