The new edition of World Tax will feature editorial and rankings of firms in 56 jurisdictions around the world. Firms can download the research questionnaire for their jurisdiction from the list below and complete it to be eligible for inclusion. A returned questionnaire does not mean a firm will definitely be included in the editorial, but it does mean the writers will be aware of the firm and will thorougly research the information provided. Return the questionnaire to Ralph Cunningham or the researcher listed on the document by May 9.
After the questionnaires have been submitted, the writers will follow up with interviews with tax directors and the senior tax leaders of the firms that have made a submission. This will help them come up with a ranking for each jurisdiction, based on the submissions and interviews. This guide gives more information about the process.

Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam

A new feature of World Tax 2013 will be a series of regional overviews of tax developments and issues in four industries:
- Consumer products
- Financial services; and
- Media & entertainment
These will be covered under the headings of corporate tax, indirect tax, tax disputes and transfer pricing and will be based on interviews with influential tax executives and tax advisers. There will be no ranking of leading firms and individuals attached to the articles but it is envisaged that the only the most prominent figures in the tax market will be asked to participate.
