Are you interested in tax advisory and tackling challenging tasks? Are you looking to apply theoretical knowledge in practice? If so, EY's Young Tax Professional of the Year is the next step for you!
EY's Young Tax Professional of the Year is an international tax contest which allows successful students interested in tax to test and demonstrate their technical and professional tax skills. Students from all over the world are urged to attend, ensuring participation from students from a variety of countries. The competition runs in two stages, the first stage on a national level and the second on an international level.
The first stage of the competition takes place in Helsinki, Finland on the 19th of May 2014. During the first round we challenge your technical abilities and wider commercial strengths. You will compete in teams solving a critical tax case and present your findings to a jury of renowned tax professionals. If you do well against some of the best minds in Finland and become a country finalist you will have the chance to represent Finland at the YTPY international final in the Netherlands in December 2014. Please note that the competition is held in English.
The second stage of the competition takes place in the Netherlands 30.11.-4.12.2014. During the four-day international final, the successful country finalists work closely with people from other cultures and backgrounds. Participants are challenged with case studies and interviews before expert judges. The judges' panel chooses three individuals for the Young Tax Professional of the Year Award and the finalists are invited to an awards ceremony where — after a final review of performance throughout the competition — the winners are announced.
