Taxand Takes Home Six Awards at the ITR Europe Awards 2012
15 May 2012
Taxand, the world's largest global organisation of independent tax advisors to multinational businesses, has been voted 'European Private Equity Tax Team of the Year' by the International Tax Review (ITR) magazine, at its eighth annual European Tax Awards in London on 16th May.

Taxand was also recognised with five national awards. For the second year running, Cyprus and Portugal both received 'National Tax Firm of the Year' awards, while Finland, France and South Africa achieved 'Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year' awards. Taxand was nominated for 28 awards in total.

The awards are determined following in-depth research by ITR's editorial team. Submissions from firms were also a vital part of the research. The ITR also consulted a large number of tax executives, tax advisors and lawyers to gain their perspective on the ground-breaking work.

Frederic Donnedieu de Vabres, Chairman of Taxand commented: "It is testament to the quality of the teams in Taxand that year on year we continue to be recognised at the ITR Awards. Receiving 28 nominations and winning six awards this year, including the best team for Private Equity across Europe, is a great achievement for Taxanders who, over the last 12 months, have been involved in some particularly complicated, multi-jurisdictional projects. The tax legislation affecting multinationals across Europe is evolving rapidly, throwing up a number of issues, across a variety of sectors. Taxand is well positioned to provide independent authoritative advice and these awards prove we're delivering an excellent service to our clients."

Ian Fleming, Taxand Global TransactionTax Service line leader said: "This year, Taxand has been involved in a significant number of large and mid-sized private equity acquisitions and carve-outs across Europe. We have provided strategic advice on complex structuring issues in the ever changing tax environment in Europe and supported funds with their investments in emerging markets. It is great that the team's efforts across Europe have been valued by our clients and recognised by our industry."
