港大經管學院於安永國際稅務菁英大賽獲取亞軍

Congratulations to Leung Wing Yin, BBA(Acc&Fin), Year 3, taking home the Second Prize in the EY’s Young Tax Professional of the Year 2021 (Local Competition). By bringing together students from all over the world, the competition aims to demonstrate how much the tax profession has changed today and how business is managed in different cultures. The competition also exposed participants to the skills required to be tomorrow’s leaders.

Wing Yin shares that “The truly fascinating part of taxation goes beyond numbers and figures. Along with the current dynamic business environment, international tax compliance modifies from time to time. The competition enabled me to gain insight into the ever-changing tax policies in different jurisdictions and how cross-border businesses manage tax risk. In the discussion of tax, there is no absolute answer, but logical thinking and critical mindsets could help us interpret and analyze new legislative and regulatory challenges in taxation. I was glad to have this opportunity to interact with seasoned tax professionals from different backgrounds at EY and collaborate with students from other universities. This valuable experience sparked my curiosity in tax and facilitated me to advance the knowledge of the international tax system, which had certainly given me exposure for my future career development.

The first phase of the competition took place in Hong Kong. After an online test regarding technical knowledge and reasoning, shortlisted semi-finalists were invited to give a group presentation and the top eight candidates proceeded to the Hong Kong final competition on April 7, 2021. The finalists had 30-minute preparation time for an individual case presentation followed by a Q&A section with judges.

Hong Kong finalists will be invited to join Greater China final which will take place in Beijing in June (tentative). Country finalist will then be invited to participate in the International final which will take place in Europe.

Established in 2010, the EY’s Young Tax Professional of the Year is an international competition designed to identify young talent with an interest in tax, help them enhance their professional skills and develop their careers. The competition gives participants the opportunity to share experiences with people from a range of backgrounds and cultures, and exposes them to the skills required to be tomorrow’s tax leaders.
