We are delighted to announce the appointment of our latest Corporate Tax Partner, Mustafa Rafik.
Mustafa joins us with over 10 years’ experience in advising on corporate tax, having pursued his career with top 10 UK firms. Whilst he advises on a wide range of corporate tax matters, he has developed a specialism for assisting owner managed, family and larger businesses with the tax implications of corporate restructures, mergers and acquisitions, employee incentives, R&D tax relief claim and capital allowance claims.
Commenting on his new role Mustafa said: “I am delighted to have joined Streets and to be starting a new and very exciting chapter in my career. I look forward to working with existing and new clients and developing strong personal and trusted relationships, helping to support them with their goals, aspirations and success.
“In the short to medium term, I envisage being busy supporting and advising on the tax implications of decisions around structures and strategy as clients look to manage their businesses and investments. Looking to my wider role within Streets, I am excited about working with my fellow Tax Partners and the wider team on the continued growth of both the firm’s tax compliance as well as specialists’ advisory services.”
When asked about what Mustafa’s appointment means to the firm, Paul Tutin, Chairman and Managing Partner, said: “The last few years have seen a significant growth of our firm geographically. As such we have been looking to ensure we service effectively the needs of both existing and new clients, especially those seeking Corporate Tax advice. Recruiting an additional Corporate Tax Partner has been something we have been looking to do for some time, though finding someone with relevant expertise and commercial drive has not been easy. We have therefore been extremely fortunate in attracting Mustafa to the firm.
“Whilst he will primarily work across the firm’s offices across the Midlands, Mustafa will also support our offices and clients across the wider practice. Mustafa joins a team of seven Tax Partners covering and looking after private clients, international matters and direct and indirect tax. Mustafa’s appointment brings the firm’s combined number of Partners and Directors to 44 supported by more than 200 staff.”
