Deloitte named "Tax Firm of the Year" in Switzerland for fifth year in a row

Zurich, 19 May 2017

2017 marks the fifth consecutive year that the industry-leading tax publication International Tax Review (ITR) has named Deloitte ʺTax Firm of the Yearʺ in Switzerland. Deloitte was also chosen as "Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year" for the fifth time in the last six years. Winning these awards for many years highlights the continuous success story of the firm’s tax and legal advisory services in the Swiss market.

“Being recognised by the International Tax Review as the tax practice with the greatest strength and depth in Switzerland is a fantastic achievement – even more so that it’s the fifth year in a row that Deloitte has won the coveted Tax Firm of the Year award,” said Jackie Hess, Managing Partner Tax & Legal at Deloitte in Switzerland. “It clearly stands testimony to our success story in the Swiss market: Deloitte continues to be the fastest growing tax practice in Switzerland, and we have significantly increased our market share, eminence and expertise in all tax fields in the past years.”

Deloitte is the leading professional services firm globally, and boasts the largest advisory capabilities and the fastest growth amongst the Big 4 in the Swiss market (see our 2016 Annual Review for more information). The Swiss practice offers clients a broad range of integrated tax and legal services, combining insights and innovation with industry knowledge to advise companies in their complex tax issues. Deloitte’s 300+ strong tax and legal team in Switzerland works closely with other member firms across the globe, providing both local and global insights to clients to help simplify their tax management. This is a particularly important factor for multinational companies based in Switzerland, as numerous challenges and opportunities arise from their business activities in multiple tax jurisdictions.

Jackie Hess added, “Deloitte is leading its clients through the ongoing global tax reset, the fundamental tax transformation that is currently taking place both in Switzerland and globally. I’m excited about the manifold and innovative ways we are positively impacting our clients in Switzerland, providing true added value to them. We regard our role as that of a thought and innovation leader in an ever-changing market environment. The latest recognition by the International Tax Review confirms our success in this regard. All this also enables us to attract and retain the very best talent. Deloitte will continue to build upon its reputation as the most innovative, nimblest and best integrated tax and legal practice in Switzerland.”

ITR has named Deloitte in Switzerland “Tax Firm of the Year” for the last five years and “Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year” five times in the last six years. The awards were presented at a ceremony in London on May 18. The ITR European Tax Awards have been granted for more than ten years. The main criteria used to evaluate companies are: size, innovation and the ability to handle complex tax matters.
