Therefore, we’re very pleased to have a good reputation as an employer and believe that we provide our employees with the opportunity to self-validate, that they enjoy and find meaning in working at TPA. First of all, I’d like to thank all my colleagues across our group of firms for their positive and constructive attitude in these difficult times, and in the name of TPA I wish them only the best.” said Petr Karpeles, TPA Managing Partner, sharing his first impressions.
Partner Jana Skálová and partner Jiří Hlaváč also received a beautiful glass plaque.
Jana Skálová received it for winning the Tax Personality of the Year – Business Tax Sector category. “Thank you to everyone who voted for me in this competition. It is a great honour for me. For me, the victory means the appreciation of my work in the Presidium of the Chamber of Tax Advisors, many professionals know me not only from lectures and publications, but also from tax advisor examinations,” said Jana Skálová.
“I am delighted that the award in the category of DIRECT TAXES (including international taxation and transfer pricing) also goes to TPA through me. I think I was awarded together with our team mainly for our long-term work in the field of transfer pricing, for our reputation in the field of expert appraisals in the field of tax and accounting and for co-authoring the recently published commentary on the Income Tax Act,” explained Jiří Hlaváč.
