Grant Thornton has appointed experienced accountant Raj Nandha as Senior Tax Manager.
The 35-year-old joins the firm after working as a Tax Manager for both a top 20 accountancy practice, dealing with personal, company and trust tax compliance and advisory matters, and an Island Corporate Service Provider, dealing with company and trust tax matters.
Grant Thornton is considered the fifth largest worldwide accountancy practice, with offices in more than 100 countries. Following a merger with BDO (Isle of Man) in early 2014, the Isle of Man office has increased its audit and assurance business, and is looking to build its tax services.
Raj, a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland, said: ‘The opportunity for me to return to practice and work for a large organisation was very attractive, especially given the large network of other Grant Thornton member firms. I believe I have gained the experience and knowledge over the past 13 years to assist Grant Thornton Isle of Man in expanding its business and tax offering, and I am looking forward to being part of the growing practice for many years to come.’
Raj has experience of local, national and international tax issues, dealing with personal, corporate and trust matters for a broad range of clients and liaising with tax authorities in the Isle of Man and UK.
Managing Director Dennis McGurgan said: ‘I am delighted to welcome Raj to our growing team at Grant Thornton. He brings a wealth of experience from the finance sector both here in the Island and in the UK, an in-depth knowledge of a broad range of taxation issues and an enthusiasm for his role which will benefit our clients.’
