Pitcher Partners Perth has confirmed the appointment of Darryl Daisley as director of customs, fuel tax and international trade, as at 29 January 2018.
Mr Daisley had previously spent 13 years with PwC as a principal in charge of the Perth-based customs practice, and his most recent role was principal at his customs and cross-border trade consulting firm Axum Pty Ltd.
In addition, Mr Daisley sits on the Association of Mining and Exploration Companies’ (AMEC) corporate regulation and taxation committee and currently represents AMEC on the ATO’s fuel schemes advisory forum.
Pitcher Partners Perth managing director Leon Mok said Mr Daisley’s appointment would allow the firm to grow and develop the service offerings of international trade, fuel tax credits and Australian Industry Participation (AIP) plans.
“Darryl’s core expertise across these areas will allow us to promote a greater level of service for cross-border expansion and trade, and open the door to further business opportunities,” Mr Mok said.
“In an ever-changing international trade environment, Darryl’s skills will be vital for clients seeking to enter into import and export markets or to take advantage of free trade agreements.
“His expertise around the complexity of AIP planning makes him ideally suited to assisting clients with developing AIP plans for major projects.”
Mr Daisley’s appointment follows the appointment of Birgitte Hebiton, formerly of KPMG, as director of taxation services, late last year.
