PwC recognised for building tax service market

PricewaterhouseCoopers (Vietnam) Ltd. (PwC) has received the prime minister’s Certificate of Merit for the firm’s achievements in building and developing the tax consulting service market in Vietnam from  2008 to 2012.

According to the Vietnam Association of Certified Public Accountants, PwC was amongst the Top 3 companies having the highest revenues from tax consulting services in Vietnam. PwC was one of the first tax consulting firms to be established in the country, and has made significant contributions to the development of the tax service and tax agent industry.

“We are delighted to receive such a valuable award which demonstrates the government’s interest in and recognition of our contributions to the tax consulting industry and, importantly, to the growth of foreign investment and development of the Vietnamese economy,” said Dinh Thi Quynh Van, PwC general director, who also received the prime minister’s Certificate of Merit for her achievements as an individual tax consultant.

“As an active member of the Vietnam Tax Consultants’ Association, PwC has joined hands with the association and the tax consulting business community to contribute to developing the tax policy system of Vietnam, to improve efficiency and boost the development of the tax consulting industry,” she added.

PwC was one of the first foreign-owned consultancy firms to be established in Vietnam in 1994. During nearly 20 years of growth and development, PwC has continuously remained among the leading firms in audit, tax, legal and advisory services, playing an active role in the development of the professional consulting service industry in Vietnam, as well as in the success of the PwC global network.

In 2011, PwC also received the prime minister’s certificates of merit for the firm and its individual members - Ian Lydall, chairman, and Nguyen Phi Lan - deputy general director of PwC Vietnam - for their contributions to the development of the independent audit service industry in Vietnam. Ian Lydall is the first foreign auditor to receive this certificate of merit.
