Deloitte Tax Championship Feedback
What the judges, teachers and students say
Judges and reviewers
Cases used in the competition are developed from real life business situations, so students need to have a high level of practical skill, analytical ability and problem-solving techniques. If students can demonstrate these abilities and skills during the competition, it bodes well for the development of career education at universities.

We always look for feedbacks fromstudents and teachers and see how we can further develop our Championship. This year, for instance, we have included the PhD category for the essay writing competition. With the addition of the PhD group to the Essay Competition this year, we are seeing entries with more profound knowledge of theories and in-depth analysis, supplemented by their vivid presentations during the competition.
- Mr. Joe Fu, Judging Panel Chairman for Essay Competition and Tax Partner, Deloitte China (2010)
Deloitte Tax Championship has already become a valuable 'intellectual property' in the tax profession. It inspires students to learn and improve their tax knowledge and skills, boost the professional spirit and cultivate professional conducts. Over the past decade, the competition has been recognized by various levels of governments and tax authorities as an example of innovative approach to promote the tax profession and increase social understanding of tax. It has also been increasingly focused on the actual problems we come across in real business practice and it is significant for the development of both teachers and students. I look forward to Deloitte's continuous success in developing the Tax Championship to become a leading influencer platform of excellence in this area.

We are most delighted to find out that our students have improved their problem-solving skills and integrated ability through their participation in the competition. We thank Deloitte for organising the Tax Championship which not only gives students an opportunity to apply their classroom knowledge to business practice, but also enhances the status of tax knowledge and the application of tax laws and regulations in the society.
- Professor Ai Hua and Mr. Wu Fan of Zhongnan University of Economics and Law (2010)
Deloitte Tax Championship is a large-scale and high quality competition with fair and stringent standards. The competition is an interactive platform for the exchange of tax knowledge, topical regulatory issues and practical applications. The competition not only has helped strengthen our tax knowledge, but also allowed students and teachers to meet with their counterparts, government officials, business executives and tax professionals for academic exchange. During the competition, we came to understand the meaning of "knowledge integration and innovation".
- Professor Zhang Haiyan, Tsinghua University (2012)
We hope to express our heartfelt gratitude to Deloitte for hosting the tax championship competition for the past eleven years. The competition not only provides immense support to tax education, but also creates a tax knowledge platform for students. The Deloitte Tax Championship is also designed in a way to test the analytical skills and team cooperation of students, while helping students to combine finance and tax knowledge to resolve problems in the simulated business cases. Students should feel inspired by the international and forward looking nature of the questions in the competition.

Shanghai University of Economic and Finance has been in the Deloitte Tax Championship since the latter’s inception. We can say that our university has been growing together with this competition. We show our support to the Deloitte Tax Championship, which has comprehensive benefits to participants – not only helping students to improve their professional knowledge and capabilities, and analytical skills, but cultivate the spirit of team work and cooperation. In addition, the competition has provided a platform of learning opportunity for participants to practice their class room knowledge with business case studies. It supports the growth journey of teachers and students every time they participate in the competition.
- Ms. Fang Hui, Shanghai University of Finance & Economics (2015)
I enrolled in the postgraduate's program after taking part in the competition. The experience gained from the competition affected our studies and research. The challenge of solving the issues in the case study aroused my interest in tax planning and international taxation, and I wanted to further explore these fields.
- Yao Jie, Central University of Finance and Economics (2006)
I met many students from the Chinese Mainland, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan at the competition. We exchanged views and learnt about different cultures and knowledge from each other.
- Amas Lee, The University of Hong Kong (2008)
Not until I participated in the Deloitte Tax Championship this year did I discover that taxation is different from my previous understanding. For instance, a single transaction can be handled with multiple tax planning options, which can lead to variety of results. It is a job full of challenges and bringing high professional value. Thanks to the Deloitte Tax Championship, I now understand taxation better.
- Huang Xinyi, Renmin University of China (2016)
Each year the Deloitte Tax Championship is very demanding. The contest goes beyond the scope of our curriculum and gives us an opportunity to understand the most recent international trends in taxation, which is always a huge surprise and an even bigger gain for all contestants.
