The local competition

This is the opportunity to take your career further, faster.

Do you want to see the business world in global terms? Do you want to learn to work with people from around the world and learn how business is done in different cultures? All of this while learning new skills that are expected of tomorrow's leaders?

This is what the Young Tax Professional of the Year competition is all about

The first phase of the competition takes place in your local country where you study.

During the first round we will challenge your technical abilities and wider commercial strengths — do well here against some of the best minds in your country and you will become a country finalist. As a country finalist, you will represent your country at the Young Tax Professional of the Year international final.

    The international final

    The Young Tax Professional of the Year 2019 competition will take place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, in November. During the four-day international final, the successful country finalists will work closely with people from other cultures and backgrounds.

    Participants will be challenged with case studies and interviews before experienced judges. The finalists will be invited to a prestigious awards ceremony where — after a final review of performance throughout the competition — the three winners of the Young Tax Professional of the Year will be announced.

    Inclusive Leadership Award

    The Inclusive Leadership Award is one of four awards presented by EY as part of the Young Tax Professional of the Year program. The award recognizes those who understand the value of difference as a driver of performance, embrace a collaborative leadership style; and find ways to support difference.
