After six months of research and contacting thousands of firms around the world, International Tax Review is pleased to present World Tax 2018, which can be viewed at http://www.itrworldtax.com.

World Tax is the guide to the leading tax advisory practices, including law and accountancy firms, around the world. The annual World Tax directory is a key resource in assisting tax professionals locate specialist advice. Each edition rates the tax expertise offered in more than 50 jurisdictions globally, giving tax executives the most comprehensive information about the market for tax advice.

World Tax is unique among directories as it classifies professional services, law firms and other tax advice providers together, rather than looking at them separately, because they undoubtedly compete for work.

As you peruse the guide, you will find that we have added extra ranking tables, detailing firms’ prowess in indirect tax, transactional tax and tax disputes. These tables have been rolled out for Latin American jurisdictions this year, and if they are a success we hope to cover more jurisdictions in the future.

Further information on our ranking methodology can be found here.

World Transfer Pricing

In addition, ITR’s sister publication, TP Week, has released World Transfer Pricing 2018. The directory is similar in many ways to World Tax, and ranks firms for their expertise in dealing with transfer pricing matters.

As always, we value your feedback and I will be happy to respond to queries. Please note that I do receive a high volume at this time of the year.
You may contact me by email at joseph.stanley-smith@euromoneyplc.com

We hope that you find World Tax 2018 informative and are able to put our research to good use in your decision-making at work.
