World Tax 2016 has awarded the Deloitte network its best rankings to date, giving a ‘top tier one’ rating to Deloitte member firms in 48 countries including the Deloitte firm in the Gulf Cooperation Council countries. The Deloitte tax practice in the GCC region has therefore maintained its tier one ranking annually since 2010. The International Tax Review World Tax Rankings are based upon input from market and tax professionals around the world.
“We are very pleased that the Deloitte tax practice in the GCC region continues to be recognized by World Tax for excellence in tax and legal services,” said Nauman Ahmed, partner in charge for tax at Deloitte in the Middle East. “These strong results reflect Deloitte’s commitment to making an impact that matters for tax clients locally as well as globally. This is achieved through technical excellence, leading technology, a strong global network, and an overall focus on bringing the right people with the right skills and tools at the right time to address clients’ most important challenges.”
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 many jurisdictions. Firms rated tier one are considered the best teams overall for tax advice in the country concerned. Rankings are based on firms’ breadth and depth of resources and experience, as well as quality of work, and range of specialisms.
