Deloitte has done a great move to have the DTC. It allows participants in DTC to have more interactions between themselves, to know each other better.

A very great exposure to my team. Something unexpected because we managed to beat our university seniors (top students) to go for the final round. It was a surprise for us as we did not learn much about advanced taxation when we took up the challenge. We just took the subject during this current semester. Knowing nothing much about all the tax incentives and blindly just went through the book in 1 day, we managed to go for final round. Thank you for organizing such event. Keep up the good work!

It's been quite a roller coaster ride joining this challenge and I'm glad I participated with new accumulated knowledge and new friends made.

It is truly wonderful to have one of the big four to organize such an event that introduces an area of work that is not of accounting. I already knew that taxation is a very important part in a business, and I was interested to pursue a career in taxation after taking my 1st taxation subject during my Diploma in Tunku Abdul Rahman College. And since then, I seriously considered a career in taxation after taking my 2nd taxation subject here in UNITEN, and after DTC08, I truly fell in love with taxation, as I consider it a very challenging job. Thank you DTC08.

DTC08 is very much useful for undergraduate business students especially for accounting students. However, personally due to lack of time and wrong timing, UNITEN student were not able to perform at our best due to accumulate assignments and tests. However, I personally pleased and honoured when DTC rep willing to come all the way from KL to Pahang to give talk regarding DTC. Hopefully in future this will continue and it will be much better if in future Deloitte can organize those tests on beginning of our semester so we can perform and involve at our best.

As the development of Malaysian Taxation in the late 90's, taxation has become an interesting area rather than just a subject/ course for all undergraduates. However, most of the private UniColleges in Malaysia do not offer Malaysian Taxation but Aussie/Uk taxation. Thus, it is important as to have a 1~2 days workshop before the competition for all partcipants. Although I haven't registered to any taxation subject (not even my undergraduate - Malaysian Taxation) but through internship programme from other firms I enjoy it and planning to move forward as a tax consultant for transfer pricing and tax investigation/audit

DTC08 makes me realised that there is a lot of things other than computation in taxation that we need to learn like writing a letter to IRB and the importance of good English.

The event was essential in helping the firm to get more familiar among students. This type of competition help students to recognise the firm's strength ( in organising such a nationwide competition). For the team category, I expect that team spirit is taken as one of the important criteria.

Firstly I really appreciate what Deloitte Tax Challenge has given me. A very good opportunity for us to learn. (It made me enhance my desire to pursue my career in taxation and in Deloitte.) Perhaps this is the first time Deloitte organise this event. So this event may have some minor problems during the running of the program.

Overall, I hope this event can be continued in next year. This event indirectly created a good relationship between the students and Deloitte (between participants also as we got contacted with each others after this event). Lastly, just to say thanks to all the organizing committee (especially Ms. Fiona) for your efforts and being patient in listening our problems.

DTC 08 was so well planned and organized. I would say that this event is a great success. Thank to Deloitte for organizing this event. Throughout this event, I get invaluable knowledge and experience from the presentation workshop conducted and from the exposure to the business case study. Moreover, I really learnt a lot throughout this challenge. Furthermore, it also gives me an opportunity to get to know new friends. Thank you so much to all the organizing committee.
