PKF Littlejohn has appointed Farhan Azeem as a Transfer Pricing Director. He joins the firm having previously held transfer pricing leadership roles at Big Four firms in both the UK and Singapore, working closely with senior client contacts at both group headquarters and individual country level.
Farhan will lead PKF Littlejohn’s transfer pricing team, which supports sophisticated domestic and international groups with tax planning, documentation and disputes across their global operations. He has significant experience of advising large multinational companies listed in London and on other major stock exchanges – including NASDAQ, the NYSE, SGX and SEHK. He has also worked with complex private equity, owner-managed and start-up businesses seeking practical tax advice.
Farhan has a track record of supporting blue-chip clients in a wide range of sectors, including energy, manufacturing, technology, consumer goods, and healthcare, amongst others.
Farhan will work closely with PKF Global, an international network of accountancy firms and local specialists, to design and implement transfer pricing policies and international tax structures.
Chris Riley, Head of Tax at PKF Littlejohn, said: “We have a reputation as a firm for supporting large, complex, multinational clients, so appointing a transfer pricing expert of Farhan’s calibre and experience is a logical step for us.
Transfer pricing services have historically been the preserve of the Big Four, so Farhan’s arrival reflects the sophisticated nature of our client base, strengthens the service we’re able to offer to not only our listed global clients but our international clients as a whole, and further reinforces our position as a challenger brand in the market.
Together with other recent senior recruits and promotions, Farhan’s appointment demonstrates the investment that we’re making in our people and our ambitions for the future.”
