Azets has strengthened its specialist tax team with the appointment of Gurj Sandhu, who joins as Partner and National Head of Capital Allowances.
Gurj is dual qualified as a chartered surveyor and accountant, specialising in capital allowances and land remediation relief. He qualified at a Big 4 firm and later moved on to establish the central region capital allowances team at another Top 10 firm.
Gurj has extensive experience advising across a broad range of clients and sectors and his experience includes discussions with HMRC to agree capital allowances claims, as well as specialist consultancy reviews of internal capital allowances systems and processes.
Praveen Gupta, National Head of Tax, said: “I’m thrilled to welcome Gurj into the Azets team. The rate of growth of our tax practice in the past year has reflected the urgent need for SMEs to take specialist advice and optimise their tax position against an extended period of economic uncertainty in the UK. This is apparent across the country – and our office network will benefit from this appointment and our enhanced specialist capability in tax allowances.
“It’s more important now than ever before for businesses to seek professional advice to fully understand the reliefs available to them and how they can prepare for confirmed and speculated tax changes in the next 12 months. The addition of Gurj will help our clients to plan and structure appropriately, providing certainty and stability despite challenging economic circumstances.”
As National Head of Capital Allowances, Gurj will lead a team advising individuals and businesses on how to maximise tax savings when undertaking commercial property projects such as acquisitions, refurbishments, or new developments.
