EY has appointed Amarjeet Singh as its Malaysia Tax practice leader, effective 1 July 2016.

In this role, Amarjeet will lead a team of more than 400 tax professionals in Malaysia who provide tax services to a broad range of clients across all principal industry sectors and market segments in Malaysia, the firm said in a statement.

Amarjeet, who has more than 18 years of professional experience in the field of taxation, is also a founder member of the Malaysian-based Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Academy (SGGS Academy).

Amarjeet, whose field of expertise include tax structuring, incentives, group reorganisations and IPOs, has been involved in some of the country’s largest mergers and group re-organizations including investment structuring for public utilities, plantations, property, automotive, leisure and tourism groups.

A regular speaker in tax seminars and conferences, Amarjeet is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, UK; and a member of the Chartered Tax Institute of Malaysia (CTIM) and the International Fiscal Association. He is also a licensed Tax Agent and GST Agent with the Ministry of Finance.

“Amarjeet brings a wealth of experience in tax and this is an area where we expect to see significant growth. With businesses’ tax strategies under greater scrutiny all over the world, Amarjeet will help our clients develop and execute business strategies quickly and effectively, with strong accountability and governance,” said EY Malaysia Managing Partner Abdul Rauf Rashid in the same statement.

On his part, Amarjeet says: “This is an exciting opportunity for me to lead a dynamic business. An uncertain global economic outlook and increasing tax regulatory and business risks are fuelling demand for greater accountability and transparency. I want to ensure that EY is best placed to help support our clients as they seek to manage their tax compliance and reporting obligations responsibly and proactively for business success.”

  1. Thank you Gyani Ji. I hope other professionals will come forward and offer their expertise for common good.
    Now the ball is at the feet of the MGC and Gurdwara Committees to avail themselves of the offers and for Coalition of Malaysian Sikh Organizations to take the initiative.

    Hopefully there will be some beneficial results.


  2. Congratulations..Another ONE UP for Sikhs in the region. I agree with Gursharan Singh ji who is another pioneer in this field and has decades of financial experience auditing etc under his belt, that our Gurdwaras finances can be better managed and our resources put to better use. Right now the Gurdwara Treasurers’ expertise only extends to FD….and as we know now FD /Savings earn miserable returns….surely the community’s hard earned resources could be put to better use..

  3. Congratulations to Amarjeet.
    It is my hope that he will contribute to uplifting the financial status of Sikh/Punjabi professionals by giving them guidance and sharing his knowledge and expertise with aspiring individuals.

    A direct way could be by Amarjeet guiding Management Committees of Malaysian Gurdwara Council, Gurdwaras and Sikh NGOs most of whom may be led or compose of individuals who may not have expertise relevant to Management of Sanggat’s funds.

    Leaders of Coalition of Malaysian Sikh Organizations can provide leadership in organization of training as it is one of its objectives. While funds can be raised via SEDIC-Governments-Donations it is equally important that they be MANAGED ACCORDING TO BEST PRACTICES which should be accompanied with TRANSPARENCY-ACCOUNTABILITY.
