Deloitte named "Tax Firm of the Year" in Switzerland for the third time in a row
Also chosen as "Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year"
Zurich, 26 May 2015
For the third year in a row, the International Tax Review (ITR) awarded Deloitte in Switzerland the title of "Tax Firm of the Year". The auditing and consulting firm also received the award of "Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year" for the third time in four years, clearly marking the success of the firm’s ambitious strategy in Switzerland.
“We are delighted and incredibly proud of these two awards, especially as this is the third time that we are receiving them”, said Reto Savoia, Managing Partner Tax at Deloitte in Switzerland. “Being recognised by the renowned International Tax Review as "Tax Firm of the Year" in 2013, 2014 and now 2015 and as "Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year" in 2012, 2014 and now 2015, is a huge success for us. It indeed shows that despite a stagnant market, Deloitte in Switzerland has successfully managed to develop its tax advisory services, significantly increasing its reputation and footprint in the country.”
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. The firm’s real plus point is the unique British-Swiss business model: local tax clients have access to over 14,000 employees in the UK and Switzerland. Such an integrated approach ensures that complex 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.
Deloitte received the two prestigious awards at the ceremony on 21 May in London. Reto Savoia further commented: “We see this as a confirmation of our effort to create real added value for our clients and to offer them an excellent service. We intend to continue to fully convince the market of our internationality, interdisciplinary character and comprehensive expertise in the field of tax advisory services and beyond.”
