Opinions from over 200 executives from all around the world in charge of selecting tax advisers for their respective companies were received in the Survey. All of them filled out a questionnaire on tax services in the EMEA region analyzing spending by companies on tax services and their level of satisfaction. Garrigues received the most mentions in the ‘Best Tax Firm in Europe’ section.
