The competition program was launched on 12 March. In the first round of the competition students from across Russia endeavored to solve tax cases. They sent their answers to the jury by e-mail. We then invited the participants who proposed the best solutions to take part in the Russian final held at EY’s office in Moscow.

The finalists were asked to solve practical problems and then a jury of international tax experts, including tax leaders from industry as well as EY tax professionals and partners, selected three winners. They were announced at a gala event on 2 July.

We are very pleased to announce the winners in the Russian finals of the International Young Tax Professional of the Year Competition:

  • First prize: Anastasia Gorobchenko (Kursk, South-West State University, 2012 graduate)
  • Second prize: Oleg Lavrov (Moscow, Higher School of Economics, fourth year student)
  • Third prize: Anton Pavlenko (Krasnoyarsk, Siberian State Aerospace University, fourth year student)

The prize for the best teamwork went to Team No. 3: Anastasia Konovalova, Ksenia Topolskaya, Oleg Lavrov and Anastasia Gorobchenko.

Peter Reinhardt, CIS Tax & Law Leader, comments, “I am immensely encouraged by the talent we have seen from all corners of Russia as part of this year’s competition. The passion and interest for tax which was on display bodes well for the future of this very important profession. I am proud of all our Russian finalists and am confident that in Anastasia we have an outstanding representative for the international final.”

Many thanks to all the finalists for their interesting solutions, good teamwork and the great atmosphere they produced at the event!

We congratulate all the prizewinners and wish Anastasia Gorobchenko every success at the international finals to be held in October 2012 in Boston, USA.

In Boston, USA, successful country finalists will work closely with people from other cultures and backgrounds. A panel of judges will confirm the three finalists taking part in the Young Tax Professional of the Year Award.
