Deloitte Middle East enhances tax services

Deloitte Middle East has launched an indirect tax practice to be headed by Deloitte UK senior partner Justin Whitehouse.

Whitehouse, who is currently in charge of Deloitte’s London indirect tax practice, will relocate to Deloitte Middle East’s international tax centre.

Deloitte’s indirect tax practice provides advice and solutions to clients facing indirect tax issues such as landfill tax, the climate change levy and insurance premium tax, along with providing specialist groups that advise on global basis dealing.

“This new practice brings yet more added value to the wide scope of Deloitte's tax services in the Middle East,” Whitehouse said.

“Together with the indirect tax practice team, we look forward to upholding Deloitte's reputation for delivering best in class services.”

Deloitte Middle East partner in charge of tax Nauman Ahmed said the launch of the service line is another important milestone for the firm to capitalise on the indirect tax opportunities of the region.

The initiative follows Deloitte’s launch of an international tax centre of excellence in Dubai in 2009 as part of its continued commitment to support clients with tax services in the Middle East.
