RSM Australia (RSM), one of the largest mid-tier accounting firms in Australia, has announced the appointment of Sam Mohammad as national head of its indirect tax practice.
Based in Brisbane, Sam brings more than 16 years of experience in providing clients with practical and easy-to-understand advice about GST, payroll tax, stamp duty, and fuel tax credits, with a particular focus on the energy, government, infrastructure, mining, and property (both residential and commercial) sectors. He has also advised on and successfully obtained GST private rulings and duty exemption requests on a range of complex matters.
Sam is a current member of the Tax Institute’s Queensland state taxes sub-committee and has been a previous member of the Australian Taxation Office’s fuel tax liaison group. He is an admitted solicitor of the Supreme Court in Queensland and, prior to joining RSM, worked as a director at KPMG, specialising in indirect taxes.
Sam Mohammad, partner, RSM, said, “Queensland is an exciting place to be right now with a strong business outlook and lots of opportunities on the horizon. I’m looking forward to bringing my skills to bear to help RSM’s clients maximise these opportunities.”
Andy Graham, managing partner – Brisbane, RSM, said:
“The Brisbane office of RSM has been growing steadily over the last 12 months and Sam Mohammad is the fourth partner we’ve appointed in that time."
"The Brisbane office has exceptional depth and expertise available to help Queensland clients position themselves for growth. Sam’s extensive experience at KPMG, as well as his prior role as a policy officer at the Queensland state government, means he’s ideally placed to provide strong business advice for local businesses.”
