Zurich, 27 May 2016

The International Tax Review (ITR) has named Deloitte ʺTax Firm of the Yearʺ for the fourth year in a row. Deloitte was also chosen as "Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year", clearly marking the impact of the firm’s tax and legal advisory services in Switzerland.

“Being recognised by the renowned International Tax Review as the leading tax firm in Switzerland for the fourth time in a row represents a tremendous achievement for our firm,” said Jackie Hess, Managing Partner, Tax & Legal, at Deloitte in Switzerland. “It clearly stands testimony to our success story in the Swiss market: For the last four years, Deloitte has been the fastest growing tax practice in Switzerland. We have significantly increased our market share, eminence and expertise in all tax fields.”

The Swiss practice offers clients a broad range of fully integrated tax and legal services, combining insights and innovation with industry knowledge to help companies solve their complex tax issues. The Swiss firm’s close to 300-strong tax and legal team works closely with the practices in other member firms across the globe. They help their clients simplify tax management while providing both local and global visibility to make informed strategic decisions. This is a particularly important factor for multinational companies based in Switzerland, as numerous challenges arise from their business activities in varying tax jurisdictions.

Jackie Hess added, “Deloitte is leading its clients through the ongoing global tax reset, in other words, the tax transformation currently taking place in Switzerland and abroad. We take these awards as an inspiration and encouragement to continue creating added value for our clients – through our holistic, interdisciplinary approach and our comprehensive local and international expertise in the field of tax and legal advisory and beyond.”

ITR has named Deloitte in Switzerland “Tax Firm of the Year” for the last four years and “Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year” in 2012, 2014, 2015 and again in 2016. The awards were presented at a ceremony that took place in London on May 26.
