ITR’s World Tax and World Transfer Pricing 2021 for Israel Published

The International Tax Review World Tax’s  2021 guide to the world’s leading tax law and accounting practices, was published last week. This comes closely after the 2020 publication which was in June 2020, thus making the current release an extension and modification of the previous release.

In addition, the individual ranking highlihgts those ranked as Tax Leader or as Highly Regarded, in three categories: women in the field of taxation, litigation of taxation, and indirect taxation.
