Moreover, we are glad to share some positive achievements of the 2020, including the recognized contribution and distinctions the Alliance received from the authoritative international bodies.

Judges praised Praxity’s detailed Covid-19 guide which provides “extensive information across G20 countries” to help businesses respond to the crisis.
The award-winning guide contains valuable information on the tax implications of Covid-19 and the government loans and support available in different territories around the world.
Updated weekly, the guide helps Praxity member firms – and their clients – navigate the complex and fast-changing tax and finance arrangements that governments are rolling out as the pandemic unfolds.
