Companies and firms have one week left to enter for the European Tax Awards 2017.

Entry information is available in the links below and all submissions should be sent to anjana.haines@euromoneyplc.com.

The closing date for submissions is Monday February 6 2017. The awards will be presented during a dinner at the Savoy in London on Thursday May 18 2017 in these categories:

In addition to the awards for the best tax and transfer pricing firms in 27 jurisdictions or regions, including South Africa, the ceremony in 2017 will again feature the presentation of separate awards to company tax departments, who can enter to be named the direct tax or indirect tax in-house team of the year. To win they must compose a 500-word description of their objectives for the 2016 calendar year and how they were achieved, highlighting areas where the work done by the team made a significant impact on the overall goals of the company.

Deals

There is a separate submission form for the 11 deals of the year awards:

  • Banking;
  • Capital markets;
  • Consumer products;
  • Energy;
  • Financial services;
  • Joint ventures;
  • Media and entertainment;
  • M&A;
  • Private equity;
  • Restructuring; and
  • Telecommunications and technology.
Any firm that worked on any of the tax aspects of the winning deals will receive an award.

Methodology

Between December 2016 and February 2017, law firms, tax advisers, accountants and other tax service providers from the following jurisdictions can submit three examples of their best work for consideration for the national tax and transfer pricing awards:

Austria; Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania); Belgium; Central and Eastern Europe (Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Romania, Slovak Republic and Slovenia); Cyprus (no TP award); Denmark; Finland; France; Germany; Greece; Hungary; Ireland; Italy; Luxembourg; Malta (no TP award); Netherlands; Norway; Poland; Portugal; Russia; South Africa; Spain; Sweden; Switzerland; Turkey; UK and Ukraine.

The awards for European Tax Firm of the Year, European Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year, US Tax Firm of the Year in Europe and Best Newcomer (international tax practices of <5 years) will be judged from these submissions.

There are separate submission forms for the European regional awards covering tax disputes, indirect tax, tax compliance and reporting, innovation and tax technology.

The awards will be judged according to:

  • Size (Not conclusive, though it does indicate what a tax team is capable of taking on);
  • Innovation (Did the advice the firm gave show something more than the straightforward answer that is commonly used? Did the matter address tax issues that were out of the ordinary and what ingenuity did the firm show to solve them?); and
  • Impact (What effect did the matter have on the client's business? Was it transformative? What has the conclusion of the matter enabled the client to achieve?)
If you wish to attend the awards dinner in London on May 18, please get in touch with Andrew Tappin.
