Deloitte Middle East launches Indirect Tax practice

Initiative further enhances top ranked tax services


July 26, 2010 – Deloitte Middle East has enhanced its tax services offering with the launch of its Indirect Tax practice. Relocating to the Middle East to head the operation is Justin Whitehouse, senior partner in charge in Deloitte UK of the London Indirect Tax practice. Justin will lead a team based out of Deloitte Middle East’s International Tax center.

“The launching of this service line is another important milestone in the eminence of Deloitte Middle East Tax which will now allow us to provide full service to our national, regional and international clients, as well as to capitalize on the indirect tax opportunities in the region”, said Nauman Ahmed, partner in charge for tax at Deloitte in the Middle East.

The initiative follows other significant developments in Deloitte Middle East’s tax services in the past year. In 2009, as part of the firm’s commitment to being at the fore of supporting its clients with tax services in the region, it launched an International Tax Center of Excellence in Dubai. The Center offers clients headquartered in the Middle East as well as investors in the region a full suite of services that includes structuring groups with inbound and outbound investments within the Middle East, transfer pricing services, Indirect tax services and transactional tax services. At the end of 2009, Deloitte was ranked a tier 1 tax advisor in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries by the International Tax Review’s World Tax 2010.

“I am honoured to lead the Indirect Tax practice in the Middle East and am excited to apply my years of expertise in this field to the region,” said Justin Whitehouse. “This new practice brings yet more added value to the wide scope of Deloitte’s tax services in the Middle East. Together with the Indirect Tax Practice team, we look forward to upholding Deloitte’s reputation for delivering best in class services.”
