Introduction

Methodology

Inclusion in the Women in Tax leaders guide 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.

International taxation is in a period of extreme change. With recommendations from the OECD's Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Project changing laws in countries around the world and multiple jurisdictions seeking to modernise their indirect tax systems, tax advisory, and the individuals who work in it, are in massive demand. This is why female advisers need a platform to demonstrate their contribution to the advisory field.

A Tax Talent report in 2015 showed that in the Big 4 firms, women account for 53% of staff entering senior levels, but this decreases to just 21% at partner level. The trend isn't limited to public accounting firms either, with results showing that in-house head of tax roles are held by men 77% of the time.

Our intention with this guide is to shine the light on the women who are taking strides in their fields. We want to show the progress that is being made, but also that it needs to continue for women in what is perceived as a male-dominated industry.

This guide is only in its second year, but the interest in it has already grown in terms of firms and clients keen to nominate the female advisers who are making an impact in their specialised jurisdictions and industries. The women listed are clearly leaders in tax.
