How will the South African EY Tax nominee be selected?
The Young Tax Professional of the Year for South Africa will be selected through a two stage process. In the first stage an online test paper based on local tax knowledge, consisting of 20 multiple choice questions and 2 narrative questions will be completed.
In the second stage, candidates will be shortlisted based on the marks achieved for the online test paper as well as a review of their Curriculum Vitae and Academic Record. All shortlisted candidates will then be invited to a one day event where they will be given 45 minutes to prepare and present a case study to a panel comprising of Tax Lecturers, Tax Officials and Ernst & Young Tax Directors.
