Deloitte Malta wins Best National Tax Firm
Deloitte Malta has been awarded Best National Tax Firm 2009/2010 during the International Tax Review's 5th Annual European Tax Awards held in London. Deloitte Malta was conferred the award in recognition of the quality and innovation of its tax advisory, transaction related, and tax compliance work in both the areas of Income Tax and VAT. Conrad Cassar Torregiani, one of Deloitte Malta's tax partners, received the award on behalf of the firm.
With seven full-time tax partners and over 60 professional members of staff, Deloitte Malta is the largest tax practice on the island with a strong focus on international tax services. Andrew Manduca, senior partner at Deloitte Malta and leader of the tax service line, said: "Being considered for these awards is further proof that Malta is now recognised as a growing financial services centre of repute within the EU and, naturally, we at Deloitte are delighted to have won the award this year as a testimony to the quality of our work, the commitment of our professional staff and the overall satisfaction of our clients".
In addition to Malta, seven other Deloitte member firms in Europe won awards including Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Turkey together with a pan-European award for the use of technology.
"These awards recognise the strength of the Deloitte organisation and reinforce our position in the European marketplace," said Dan Lange, DTT global managing partner tax. Deloitte member firms offer clients a broad range of fully integrated tax services. Their approach combines insight and innovation from multiple disciplines with business and industry knowledge to help companies excel globally.
International Tax Review has been running the European Awards programme since 2006. The award programme recognises national tax and transfer pricing awards, covering 25 jurisdictions and 24 jurisdictions respectively. There are also 14 pan-European awards.
Judging for these awards are based purely on transactions for the 12-month period taking into account size (capability), innovation and complexity. The ITR team also consults with a large number of tax advisers, private-practice lawyers, tax executives and in-house counsel to gain their perspective on the ground-breaking work during this period.
