European Tax Awards 2018: Winners announced

Awards_large

Europe’s leading tax firms dominated this year’s European Tax Awards through innovation and outstanding tax controversy management.

The awards, which have been held by TP Week’s sister publication the International Tax Review since 2005, were presented at a dinner at the Savoy Hotel on May 17. 

The top accolades of the night were awarded to Deloitte as the best European Tax Firm of Year, and to EY as the leading European Transfer Pricing of the Year.

For the resolution of a significant tax dispute in Europe, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer was awarded as the European Tax Disputes Firm of the Year.

In another case, a court victory for a client resulted in Baker McKenzie winning the European Court of Justice Firm of the Year award.

For the second time in a row, WTS Global won the Indirect Tax Firm of the Year award.

A great team spirit and ahead-of-the-curve technology application and innovation won the European In-House Team of the Year for Direct Tax award for German online platform Zalando.

With the M&A and private equity market heating up over the past few years, the deal awards category has also become more competitive than ever.

Please read on for a full list of this year’s nominees and winners. A methodology can be found at the end of the article.

Congratulations to all of this year's winners!

Methodology Between December 2017 and February 2018, International Tax Review asked law firms, tax advisers, accountants and other tax service providers to submit three examples of their best work for consideration for the national tax and transfer pricing awards. The regional awards and other categories, such as the best newcomer, were judged from these submissions.

Firms were able to make separate submissions for the deal awards covering banking, capital markets, consumer products, energy, financial services, joint ventures, media and entertainment, M&A, private equity, restructuring, telecommunications and technology, and for tax compliance and reporting, tax policy, tax innovation and tax technology.

Taxpayers could also make submissions for best in-house team of the year in direct tax and transfer pricing.

International Tax Review’s editorial staff researched these submissions with private practitioners and in-house tax managers to compile shortlists and choose winners for each of the country and regional awards.

The awards were 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 offerings in a particular market for the first time? Win an unprecedented judgment in court?

These awards represent the opinions of the magazine on the leading tax advisers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa based on their work in 2017.
