Deloitte named "Tax Firm of the Year" in Switzerland for the second time
The auditing and consulting firm was also chosen as "Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year"
ZURICH, 22 May 2014 - For the second year in a row, the International Tax Review (ITR) awarded Deloitte in Switzerland the title of "Tax Firm of the Year". The additional award of "Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year" is further impressive proof of Deloitte's ambitious strategy in Switzerland bearing fruit.
“We are incredibly proud of these two awards”, said Reto Savoia, Managing Partner, Tax at Deloitte in Switzerland. “The fact that the renowned International Tax Review has selected us for the second time in a row as "Tax Firm of the Year" and, after 2012, has again named us "Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year", is a huge success. Tax advisory services have tremendous strategic significance at Deloitte here in Switzerland and are the reason we have been continuously developing this area for many years. Our team - quite rightly - enjoys an excellent reputation in the Swiss market.”
Tax services with a unique business model
The global network of Deloitte experts advises clients in Switzerland through its comprehensive range of integrated tax services. Here, the real plus point is the unique British-Swiss business model: Local tax clients have access to some 12,600 employees in the UK and Switzerland. Such an integrated approach ensures that demanding tax issues can be dealt with holistically. This is a particularly important factor for multinational companies as numerous challenges arise as a result of their business activities in regions with varying tax laws.
At the award ceremony in London last night, Reto Savoia accepted both awards on behalf of Deloitte: “We see this as a confirmation of our effort to create real added value for our clients and to offer them an excellent service. For us, these awards represent a motivation to keep on pursuing very ambitious objectives. We intend to continue to fully convince our clients of our internationality, interdisciplinary character and comprehensive expertise in the field of tax advisory services.”
