WTS Global is not just a network. We see ourselves as a global entity that supports our mandates on all tax issues, no matter what country. Our cooperation is based on five key pillars that make us unique.
We offer a full fledged tax service portfolio specializing in all domains of taxation and advising corporate, private and institutional clients. The tax services range from Corporate Tax to Indirect Tax, Customs, Transfer Pricing & Valuations Services, M&A (Tax), Global Expatriate Services, International Tax and Permanent Establishments (PEs), Tax Controversy, Financial Services, Real Estate (Tax) and Digital Solutions. Our broad spectrum enables us to provide integrated tax advice rather than insular solutions to our clients. All member firms are bound to render the full set of global services as a minimum catalogue on a national level.
Since our foundation in 2003, we have continuously focussed on tax consulting and deliberately refrained from annual audits in order to avoid potential conflicts of interest. With this strategic decision, we anticipated today’s demands of the European Union to separate tax consulting from audit services at an early stage. As all member firms of WTS Global share the principal of refraining from conducting annual audits, we lay the foundation for a trustful, long-termrelationship with our clients which is geared towards the future.
We are much more than a network. We have similar structures to a corporate organization, including a dedicated full-time central management team which is led by a CEO who, until recently, was Head of Tax at a multinational company. Our global Service Line Heads and Regional Coordinators ensure that our member firms have regular technical exchanges on a global, regional and national level.
We have a ‘one firm per country’ policy. It is our aim to have trustful and long-lasting relationships with our member firms. However, in exceptional and rare cases, due to market size or any other substantial reason where it is crucial to have more than one partner per country, we allow exceptions to the rule.
We select our member firms very carefully. Not only do we conduct stringent quality reviews prior to admission into the network and in the course of membership to guarantee highest quality standards, but we also devote significant time and effort to get to know the people behind the company. It is one of the primary tasks of our Chief Coordinator at WTS Global to hand-pick member firms that are strong players in their home markets and have the same DNA as we do, sharing our values and aspirations. By doing so, we manage to create a family-style network and homogenous organisation where tax consultants know each other for many years and work together seamlessly. A large number of our partners come from big global tax consultancies who decided to establish their own firms, thus, adding an entrepreneurial flavour to our network.As all member firms of WTS Global share the principal of refraining from conducting annual audits, we lay the foundation for a trustful, long-term relationship with our clients which is geared towards the future.
