Over 30 different firms and individuals won recognition for their unique achievements at this year’s European Tax Awards 2017 held at The Savoy, London.

Deloitte showed the greatest strength and depth in its international tax practice throughout Europe to win the European Tax Firm of the Year and Transfer Pricing awards on May 18. The firm also won a number of national awards for its innovative work and tailored advice to clients.

Vieira de Almeida & Associados won the European Court of Justice Firm of the Year, while Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer was named the European Tax Disputes Firm of the Year.

WTS Global won European Indirect Tax Firm of the Year.

This year's Editor's Choice award was won by the European Commission's Margrethe Vestager, for her phenomenal efforts to get multinationals paying their fair share of tax.

The awards were presented at a dinner at the Savoy Hotel on May 18. They consisted of national trophies for the best tax and transfer pricing firms in 27 jurisdictions; regional categories, such as for tax policy and compliance & reporting; and deal awards focusing on the leading matters in a number of industry sectors and practice areas such as M&A, capital markets, media & entertainment and technology & telecommunications.

The European Tax Awards have taken place annually since 2005 and seek to recognise the leading international tax professionals from around Europe and South Africa.

To win, firms composed 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.

Methodology

Between December 2016 and February 2017, law firms, tax advisers, accountants and other tax service providers from the following jurisdictions submitted 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) were judged from these submissions.

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

The awards were 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?
