World Tax and World Transfer Pricing 2014 questionnaires are available now

The research has now started for the new edition of World Tax and the first edition of World Transfer Pricing, International Tax Review's directories of leading tax and transfer pricing firms around the world.

This year, International Tax Review and TPWeek are launching World Transfer Pricing, the guide to the world’s leading transfer pricing firms, which will rank the top transfer pricing firms by jurisdiction and profile their top partners alongside examples of their transactions over the past year.

World Transfer Pricing will allow taxpayers to see what firms are offering which transfer pricing services and will allow smaller boutique transfer pricing firms to rise above larger tax firms if their transfer pricing services are exemplary in a particular jurisdiction.

While World Tax 2014 will be the 20th edition of the guide to the leading tax advisory firms, including law firms, around the world, World Transfer Pricing will be first of an annual publication highlighting the top transfer pricing advisory firms, law firms and economists.

This guide provides more information about how World Transfer Pricing will be researched and how the results will be produced. And this one tells you more about the World Tax process.

World Tax and World Transfer Pricing will feature editorial and rankings of firms in 56 jurisdictions around the world. Firms can download the research questionnaire for their jurisdiction from the list below and complete it to be eligible for inclusion. Though the return of a questionnaire does not mean a firm will definitely be included in the editorial, but it means the writers will be aware of the firm and will thoroughly, and independently, research the information provided.

Return the questionnaire to Salman Shaheen by May 24.

After the questionnaires have been submitted, the writers will follow up with interviews with tax directors and the senior tax leaders of the firms that have made a submission. This will help them come up with a ranking for each jurisdiction, based on the submissions and interviews.

These are the countries that will be covered:

Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam.

Austria, Baltic States, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine and UK.

Read World Tax 2013.

Like last year, World Tax 2014 will include a series of regional overviews of tax developments and issues in four industries:

  • Energy and natural resources;
  • Consumer products
  • Financial services; and
  • Media & entertainment

These will be covered under the headings of corporate tax, indirect tax and tax disputes and will be based on interviews with influential tax executives and tax advisers. There will be no ranking of leading firms and individuals attached to the articles but it is envisaged that the only the most prominent figures in the tax market will be asked to participate.
