Head of VAT - Big 4 - UAE

On the wave of recently announced VAT introduction in the GCC, a Big 4 firm required a VAT leader - seasoned indirect tax professional with experience in mature tax jurisdictions and actual VAT implementation in order to lead regional VAT practice. 

Our Solution

Given the tremendous scarcity of VAT professionals in the region, Cooper Fitch has conducted a global wide market mapping exercise identifying high calibre candidates which 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 which was presented to the client. 

Result

The client had 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 two Asia - Pacific countries as well as government work and GST policy development for one of the countries.
