Tax Accounting Leaders Guide 2016 – nominations now open

Who are the leading tax accounting and compliance advisers around the world? Make your nominations now.

At a time when corporate tax affairs are being scrutinised from all angles – including the public and mainstream media, aside from tax authorities around the world – external advice on all-things-tax-accounting is about documentation and planning, identifying and monitoring risk and tax function performance.

As the convergence of tax and finance departments continues, driven by a need to react to the trends outlined above, International Tax Review wants to highlight those that excel in this field so that taxpayers have access to the best tax accounting and compliance advisers wherever they are operating in the world. That is why we are launching the first edition of ITR’s Tax Accounting Leaders Guide.

The work of these advisers does not stop at ensuring appropriate and business-driven structures are in place, but in ensuring that this message is accurately presented to the authorities and other stakeholders. For the most part, taxpayers are keen to be fully compliant, and do not mind paying ‘higher’ rates if they have certainty and stability from a tax exposure perspective. But in the post-BEPS age of transparency, knowing what to report, when to report it and in what fashion (taking into account the technical knowledge of those likely to see such information, including a largely ill-informed general public) is a skillset that taxpayers increasingly view as essential.

Maintaining proper documentation to highlight taxpayer compliance, meeting filing deadlines and planning for changes to the way tax information is being reported are all part-and-parcel of the tax accounting leader’s job.

Know someone who ticks all the boxes? Then help us to recognise their expertise in this area of tax advisory services by completing the survey for the inaugural Tax Accounting Leaders Guide.


Inclusion in Tax Accounting Leaders will be based on a minimum number of nominations received from peers and clients, along with evidence of outstanding success in the past year. Firms and individuals cannot pay to be recommended in this guide.

When nominating advisers for ITR leaders guides, please consider the following:

·         Technical ability;

·         Achievement of client objectives;

·         Seniority in own organisation;

·         Leadership in policy development with government; and

·         Profile in representative associations.

To take part in the research process and ensure your firm is considered for the guide, please complete this survey. A maximum of five advisers can be nominated per form submission. To nominate further advisers please submit a new form. Please make sure you complete the form in one sitting as you will not be able to save your form and return to it later.

You may nominate tax accounting advisers from your own firm providing you also nominate the same number of advisers from other firms.

Deadline for completed surveys: March 7 2016
