Of the 38 Taxand jurisdictions polled, 30 were included in the top two tiers of the results and this year saw the number of Taxand countries in Tier 1 of the survey increase from 9 to 14. Taxanders in Indonesia, France, Luxembourg, Canada and Ireland, join those in Venezuela, Peru, India, Malaysia, Cyprus, Greece, Portugal, Russia and Spain - all of whom retain their status from 2009 - in Tier 1 of the results.

The poll, which sets out to find the world's leading tax planning practices, this year has greater significance than ever before, as multinationals seek trustworthy advice in order to operate efficiently in a landscape of increased government scrutiny and enforced transparency.

Frederic Donnedieu de Vabres, Chairman of Taxand commented: "This year, in the face of a tough economic environment for clients, Taxand has continued to build on its reputation as a world-class tax advisory organisation and the one true, global alternative to the Big 4. Our increased recognition in this year's poll signifies marked progress in our united ambition to be multinationals' first choice for quality, integrated, tax advice, worldwide.

The push by G20 leaders and the increased reach and authority of the OECD over the past two years, has limited 'aggressive' tax planning and the tax advice industry must be quick to change and adapt. Those advisors that fail or are too slow to change and deal with this increased global complexity leave their clients potentially exposed. Taxand is fully equipped to deal with change and we are delighted to see this poll recognising our capability, globally."
