Deloitte Africa was named Africa Tax Firm of the Year at the 2021 International Tax Review (ITR) Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) Tax Awards ceremony, held virtually on Thursday, 9 September 2021.
According to ITR, the practice is awarded this accolade for demonstrating exceptional performance and impact in advising clients on direct and indirect tax matters in its jurisdiction, as part of cross-border matters or as domestic deals, cases or projects.
As part of the EMEA region, Deloitte Africa also won the Tax Technology Provider of the Year (for implementing and integrating new technology-based processes, systems or tools to improve the efficiency of tax teams), and the Tax Compliance and Reporting Firm of the Year award (for displaying exceptional strength in tax compliance and reporting matters).
“We are thrilled and humbled that our amazing team has been recognised in this way,” Delia Ndlovu, Managing Director for Deloitte Africa Tax & Legal said of the accolades. “It is a tribute to their hard work and the tenacity that they have shown over a very difficult year, considering the pandemic and economic fallout we have faced. It is also a recognition of the investment we have made in our tax technology solution space over the last few years and further reaffirms the strategic view we have taken of tax compliance across Africa. Most of all it is a tribute to our clients, who trust us with the work and allow us to continue to make an impact that matters, together.”
The ITR EMEA Tax Awards are now in their 17th year celebrating the leading tax and transfer pricing firms as well as practitioners from across the EMEA region. The awards submissions are judged on innovation, level of impact, complexity of matter, and scale of projects completed over a twelve-month period.
