Given the tremendous scarcity of VAT professionals in the region, Cooper Fitch have conducted a global wide market mapping exercise identifying high calibre candidates whom match the search criteria. The long list included candidates from the UK, Australia, Netherlands, Malaysia, China, Singapore, Hong Kong and the US. Our firm conducted initial screening in order to produce a shortlist of the most relevant candidates. 

Result:

The client successfully hired an individual that fully matched the job criteria and brought over 30 years' experience in the field including implementation of indirect taxes with practice firms in Asia and Pacific countries, government experience and GST policy development.
