Based on four regional surveys, the magazine polled tax directors and executives from corporations around the world with 39% of respondents choosing Deloitte as having the best brand in tax.

The global survey of tax services is the combined data from International Tax Review’s four regional surveys conducted over the past three years. 790 responses were received from heads of tax, chief financial officers, and tax executives for the 2006 global survey.
The survey poll asked respondents how much they spend on tax services, what services they outsource and how satisfied they are with the services they receive. The surveys also asked them what their biggest challenge is and how tax services could improve. The 2006 results include the firms that respondents thought had the best brand in tax services.
