The countdown has started, with less than a week to go until the winner of EY’s Young Tax Professional of the Year Award 2013 is announced at the 67th International Fiscal Association (IFA) Congress, in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Stephan Kuhn, EMEIA Tax Leader at EY, comments: “28 young finalists have been selected from more than thousand students from all over the world and challenged both on their technical tax abilities and wider commercial strengths. This year’s entrants represented more than 200 universities, and we are extremely pleased that so many tertiary institutions in so many countries are supportive of this initiative.”
The successful finalists will have the opportunity to work closely with a diverse range of tax professionals who will be assisting in preparing the candidates to meet with the final judging panel. The finalists will be challenged over a four-day period with international taxation case studies. They will face interviews before expert judges, who will be looking for evidence of creative and analytical strengths, as well as practical skills, inclusive leadership behavior and personality. The judging panel will then confirm the three winners of the EY Young Tax Professional of the Year Award 2013.
The panel includes leading members of governments and tax administrations, distinguished professors, tax directors of some of the world’s largest multinational companies and partners from EY’s Tax practice.
The three finalists for the Young Tax Professional of the Year Award 2013 will be announced at a prestigious ceremony to be held on the evening of 28 August, at a joint IFA and
EY gala dinner at Moltke’s Palace. They will be presented with prizes that provide an opportunity for personal experience, as well as connection with, and understanding of, the various tax markets:
- First prize: a 30-day “round-the-world” business trip built around 10-day working visits to key EY Area Tax Centers in London, Washington DC and Hong Kong
- Second prize: a 10-day visit to one of EY’s Area Tax Centers
- Third prize: an invitation to participate in an EY international client conference, at which the winner will have the opportunity to meet our leaders and key clients
