Taxpayers’ need for advice from professionals with expertise in tax disputes is more important than ever as governments and tax authorities are becoming more aggressive in their search for revenue.
And with tax authority litigation resources stretched, the noise about alternative dispute resolution in tax cases is getting louder and louder around the world. So taxpayers now need an array of skills from their controversy advisers, from litigators to mediation specialists.
In an environment where all transactions are facing increased scrutiny, it is crucial that taxpayers have access to practitioners with experience in all stages of controversy, including pre-audit, audit, administrative appeals and litigation.
For the last two years, International Tax Review has produced its guide to the leading tax dispute resolution lawyers and advisers around the world to help multinational companies seeking the best tax controversy advice available. Tax Controversy Leaders editions one and two have received excellent feedback from taxpayers who see it as a useful tool in finding the right dispute advice.
International Tax Review is committed to providing a comprehensive global tax disputes guide, recognising the leading controversy advisers, and will publish a third edition of Tax Controversy Leaders in July 2013. We want your valuable input on selecting the leaders in each jurisdiction and we invite you to take part in the research process.
Inclusion in Tax Controversy Leaders will be based on a minimum number of nominations received from peers and clients, along with evidence of outstanding success in the last year. Firms and individuals cannot pay to be recommended in the guide.
You may nominate tax controversy advisers from your own firm providing you nominate an equal number of advisers from other firms.
When nominating advisers, please consider the following:
· Technical ability;
· Achievement of client objectives;
· Seniority in own organisation;
· Leadership in policy development with government; and
· Profile in representative associations.
