WTS wins two awards at the European Tax Awards

München, London, 19/05/2017 – WTS won the "German Tax Firm of the Year 2017" award at this year's European Tax Awards ceremony held in London on Thursday, 18th May. The international tax network, WTS Global was also able to hold its own in a strong field, winning the “European Indirect Tax Firm of the Year 2017" award.

The European Tax Awards are presented annually by the prestigious international trade journal, International Tax Review (ITR). The awards honour leading national and international tax consulting firms from 27 countries for their outstanding achievements. Submitted projects are evaluated on the basis of innovation, complexity and team size.
"WTS has grown rapidly in Germany since the company was set up in 2000. During 2016 alone, we generated a group turnover of more than EUR 100 million. We are, therefore, all the more pleased to win these ITR Awards, which underline this very positive development," commented Fritz Esterer, CEO and Chairman of the Board of WTS Global.
One of our growth drivers in the past few years has been the business partnering model, which WTS uses to partially or fully represent corporate tax departments. However, consulting services in the fields of VAT, transfer pricing and internal tax control systems (Tax ICS) have also been key components of this success. WTS has also developed significantly at an international level.
"Like WTS Germany, WTS Global has also won an award this year. This shows that we are on the right path with our international growth strategy. Over the past few years, we have strengthened our international network with high-profile partners in the world's most important markets and established international service lines. This allows us to provide our clients in more than 100 countries with the best possible service in terms of their cross-border issues," adds Esterer
