Written by Mayuree Kiatadisorn, BBA#23
Hosted by Deloitte, Deloitte Tax Challenge 2017 is a business case competition which integrates taxation aspect into the case. On February 9 – February 10, 6 teams participated in the first day, and only 4 were selected to be finalists and competed on the second day.
Our team, comprised of Kedsarin Areeswangkij (BBA#23; Finance Major), Doldej Schuett (BE), and Veerasin Nguiakaramahawong (LLB), and I, Mayuree Kiatadisorn (BBA#23; Accounting Major) got to be a part of this challenge. However, the most valuable thing we got was not the prize itself, but the valuable experience.
The first day started off casually as we received a warm welcome from Deloitte staffs. After a brief session of getting to know more about the company, we worked on a short case ensure successful collaboration between family-run businesses. Only 1 and a half hour was allowed as preparation time and presentation time was limited to 15 minutes.

4 Finalist teams will be determined using a set of differences skills such as communication skill, logical thinking, time management, teamwork, and question-handling. After quick yet effective brainstorming and debating, we delivered our recommendations to the judges.
Although based on the first day’s case information, more challenge was added in the second day as taxation consideration is now needed to properly design an optimal organizational structure since the company in our case aimed to expand internationally. After discussion over plausible alternatives, and how the organizational structure should be created, we delivered 20-minute presentation to honorable panel of judges: South East Asia partners of Deloitte. Finally, our hard work has paid off. We are the champion of Deloitte Tax Challenge 2017!
In only 2 days, we have learned a lot from the panel of judges who generously gave constructive feedback and share of insight. Moreover, our team consists of people from diverse knowledge background, thus, we also learned from each other and looking at things from a different spectrum.
