Taxand wins global recognition by International Tax Review

Taxand wins global recognition by International Tax Review

Taxand, the global network of over 2,000 leading tax advisors from independent member firms in approaching 50 countries, has just won its third award this year. The International Tax Review presented Taxand with the "Best Newcomer Award 2008" at its Asian awards ceremony in Singapore this week. The win means Taxand has won all three awards available in this category worldwide succeeding in Europe, the Americas and Asia.

The International Tax Review introduced its Best Newcomer category this year to recognise best-in-class cross-border advice achieved by entrants to the market within the last five years. Taxand was chosen for each award by a panel from the ITR's editorial team following initial research into the perspectives of tax executives, in-house counsel, tax advisors and private-practice lawyers operating in the regions.

Fr?d?ric Donnedieu de Vabres, chairman of Taxand said: "This is a great accolade for our Asian member firms and a real mark of the progress we have achieved globally. To win three awards only three years since we launched is a true reflection of the impact we have made on our markets. Taxand is actively competing worldwide delivering the independent, high quality tax advisory services that our multinational clients demand. In the coming three years, I can see only further success as we continue our commitment to providing practical advice within the shortest timeframe."

"It's a dream come true and vindication of the quality of the AsianTaxand firms who have joined our network only recently. I anticipate that our Asian members will play an even more important role in the future as our clients' focus shifts to growth markets in Asia," reflected Mukesh Butani, Taxand Asia Coordinator and Board member.

Taxand was shortlisted for an impressive 9 awards in total including Australia, India, Indonesia and Singapore Tax Firm of the Year, national awards for indirect tax performance in India and Indonesia and Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year and Case of the Year in India. As well as Taxand winning the Best Newcomer award across Asia, our Indian member firm, BMR Advisors, won the best Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year award.
