Deloitte named “Tax Firm of the Year”
International Tax Review (ITR) has named Deloitte in Switzerland the Swiss tax firm of the year. This is a milestone for the ambitious Deloitte tax practice in Switzerland.
“This is a great honour for us”, said Reto Savoia, Deloitte partner and leader of the Swiss tax practice. “The fact that International Tax Review has chosen Deloitte in Switzerland as the Swiss “Tax Firm of the Year” for the first time confirms the success of our strategy. We are one of the most successful and fastest growing audit and consulting firms in Switzerland. Deloitte grew in 2012 by about 13 percent in Switzerland.”
Deloitte has been continuously expanding its tax practice in Switzerland since 2006 – with ambitious targets. According to Reto Savoia, the tax advisory practice expects to grow its market share significantly within the coming years.
