Deloitte UK has appointed two new names to its tax management consulting group, as part of plans to expand in this area.
Fiona Jones joins as an associate partner from BP where she previously led its global technology network. She has experience in the tax areas of the energy, chemicals, utilities and manufacturing sectors in various roles, including BP, ICI and United Utilites.
Josef Macdonald joins as a director from Ernst & Young where he was the global XBRL leader. He has 12 years of experience in assurance and advisory services and 10 years of participating in various XBRL projects globally, including leading the IASB’s XBRL team.
Deloitte’s head of tax management and consulting Alan MacPherson said the appointment of Jones and Macdonald is valuable to Deloitte’s plans to expand tax management.
“Effective reporting and efficient tax solutions are moving up the agenda as improved governance, increased transparency and risk management become increasingly important for business”, said MacPherson.
