Americas Tax Awards 2013 – time to enter is now

fotoflexer-photoessexhouseexterior.jpg

The research has begun for the Americas Tax Awards 2013.

The Essex House Hotel in New York city on September 26 is the venue once again for International Tax Review’s eighth annual Americas Tax Awards, the week after the Global Transfer Pricing Forum in the same city.

All the information, including entry forms, you need to participate is included on this page. The number of awards has decreased from previous years, mainly because the national tax disputes awards have been absorbed into the awards for national tax firm of the year.

The innovation this year is the inclusion of deal awards, where the top transactions of the year in 10 industries or practice areas, such as financial services, consumer products, restructuring or capital markets, will be identified. If any firm worked on any tax aspect of the winning transaction, it will win an award. This is a recognition that, more often than not, the successful completion of a transaction involved tax work from many firms, not just one.

Transactional information submitted in the research questionnaire for the World Tax and World Transfer Pricing 2014 directories will be considered for the purposes of the awards. However, the focus of the directories and the awards do not correspond exactly, so firms should look at the list of awards and consider whether they need to submit additional information, such as for the tax policy, innovation or newcomer awards. If a firm has not completed a research questionnaire for the directories, they should complete the entry forms to make sure their work is considered for the awards.

The awards focus only on quality of work over a 12 month period, ignoring the size and, in some categories, breadth of a practice. The directories look at the profile of a firm, including size, strength in depth and breadth, quality of clients and work done, and reputation of its tax and transfer pricing practice.

The awards also include, as usual, four awards for in-house teams – for direct and indirect tax in North and Latin America. Companies’ tax departments can compete for these awards by sending a synopsis of up to 500 words about why they should win.

The closing date for entries is Tuesday July 9. Please contact Ralph Cunningham if you have any questions. And if you wish to attend the awards, please get in touch with Megan Poundall.

All the entry forms for the awards can be found here.
