Between November 2017 and January 2018, companies, law firms, tax advisers, accountants and other tax service providers from the jurisdictions mentioned above can submit three examples of their best work for consideration for the national tax, transfer pricing, and litigation and disputes awards.

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?)
  • Complexity (Did the matter address tax issues that were out of the ordinary and what ingenuity did the firm show to solve them?)
  • Impact  (What impact did the advice have on the taxpayer? For example, did it help them take over their biggest rival? Issue equity and debt in a particular market for the first time? Win an unprecedented judgement in court?
