“This recognition is a true testament to our ongoing commitment to the Middle East region and globally to provide the highest quality services in tax and other services, with an unwavering client-centric focus,” said Omar Fahoum, CEO of Deloitte, Middle East.

“Deloitte is very proud to have achieved tier one ratings in more countries than ever before in World Tax 2017 with GCC countries maintaining tier one rankings,” said Nauman Ahmed, partner and Tax leader, Deloitte, Middle East. “Today’s rapidly shifting global tax environment creates unprecedented change and uncertainty for multinational companies.

These tier one ratings highlight the breadth and quality of Deloitte’s global tax practices, and the impact they make by providing technology-enhanced, globally integrated services.”

International Tax Review’s World Tax tier ratings are based on the World Tax editorial team’s research, as well as input from the market and tax professionals around the world. According to its editors, World Tax is designed to provide a full picture of the market for tax advice by assigning tier ratings to firms in multiple jurisdictions. Firms rated tier one are considered the best teams overall for tax advice in the country concerned. Tier one rated firms also boast a variety of different clients. Rankings are based on firms’ breadth and depth of resources and experience, as well as quality of work, and a range of specialisms.
