Deloitte sets up dedicated Tax Dispute Resolution & Controversy Management Unit
Johannesburg, 12 August 2013 - Multinational organisations continue to spend more time and resources managing tax controversies in both local and overseas markets.

“We are thrilled to have Patricia on board and dedicated to addressing the increasingly complex area of Tax Dispute Resolution and Controversy Management,” says Kader.
