Ernst & Young yesterday announced the launch of its Africa Global Tax Desk in Beijing. This initiative will be lead by Rendani Neluvhalani, International Tax Services (ITS) Partner, who has been with the organization for over 15 years and brings extensive Pan- African tax experience to the role. With Chinese investment in Africa increasing, the Africa Global Tax Desk will provide Chinese companies with real time advice on investing in Africa.
Rendani joins China’s Africa Global Tax Desk from her current position as Ernst & Young’s Pan-African ITS Partner, based in South Africa. Rendani and the Ernst & Young Africa tax network will serve the China market, as well as countries in the Asia-Pacific region and Japan. She brings a broad understanding of many African tax systems to her new role, as well as a well-established African network.
Rendani’s experience spans across various industries, with a focus on the financial services and telecommunication industries. She spent over two years with the international and structured finance team in Ernst & Young’s London office where she spent a significant portion of time on tax effective supply chain and transfer pricing engagements. Rendani also led the ITS practice in South Africa for four years as well as the Africa region for two years.
Gerrit Groen, Ernst & Young’s Global Tax Desk Leader comments, “As companies focus on growth opportunities in emerging and developed markets, the need for cost-effective and efficient solutions to simplify global tax complexity has gained greater importance in the executive boardroom.”
