Enter now for the European Tax Awards 2011
International Tax Review will present its sixth annual European Tax Awards at the Dorchester Hotel in London on May 18 2011.
The awards will go to the firms that demonstrate examples of the most innovative client work in Europe between March 1 2010 and December 31 2010. The winners and runners-up will also be presented in the June issue of the magazine. The hyperlinked entry forms below are your chance to enter your firm for as many awards as you wish.
New categories this year include in-house tax team of the year for direct and indirect tax, tax innovator of the year and tax policy firm of the year.
Awards will be presented to firms in these 26 jurisdictions or regions:
Austria, Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania), Belgium, Central and Eastern Europe (Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Romania, Slovenia and Slovak Republic), Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, UK and Ukraine
To decide the winners, International Tax Review’s team of journalists will undertake detailed research from a variety of sources. Submissions from firms are a vital part of this research. The magazine’s editorial staff will also consult a large number of tax advisers, private-practice lawyers, tax executives and in-house counsel to gain their perspective on the ground-breaking work of the March 1 2010 to December 31 2010 period.
Shortlists will be compiled based on the submissions and research, and the winners will be chosen after a poll of international tax executives. .
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 solution the firm employed 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?)
