ITR Asia-Pacific Tax Awards 2021: Shortlist announced

The shortlist for the ITR Asia-Pacific Tax Awards 2021 has been announced

The ITR Asia-Pacific Tax Awards recognises outstanding achievement by tax professionals, teams and firms across the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region over a 12-month period.

As well as 16 jurisdictional awards, there are regional, individual and in-house categories to showcase the best performers of 2020.

Regrettably, this year ITR is unable to host a live ceremony, however ITR will be recognising the talents and work accomplished by tax professionals via a virtual awards ceremony on August 26th.

ITR’s senior business development manager Raquel Ipo will contact firms and individuals in due course.

If you have any questions about the shortlist or research, please contact our awards researcher John Harrison.

Our thoughts are with our readers and everyone that has been affected by the global pandemic.

Register to attend the virtual awards ceremony today!
