Tätigkeitsbeschreibung

Span of Control: 4 people
Area of Responsibility: the UAE, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia, and India
Gross Annual Revenue: $200 million
- Implemented the new value added tax in the UAE and in Saudi Arabia (introduced as of
January 1, 2018) by adapting internal controls – i.e., mechanisms, rules, and
procedures—and by launching several SAP updates after extensive testing.
- Reached a final solution with a Middle Eastern official authority to resolve a tax
assessment with a limited final settlement and – in another case – successfully defended
the company against a tax query for almost two years, preventing an assessment and,
therefore, financial as well as reputational damage.
- Initiated and managed a regional intercompany settlement process to drastically reduce
intercompany balances, resulting in lower tax exposure, account maintenance, and thus
overall costs.
- Formalized capital spending as well as set-up, operating, and extra costs of the
company's new acquisition – two brand new rigs with contracts in Saudi Arabia – before
reporting to the board of directors.
- Reclaimed a withholding tax from a Middle Eastern official authority after winning the
case due to sound documentation of the financial reporting evidence and close
collaboration with local authorities.
