Riyadh, Saudi Arabia – Deloitte announced the admission of Hadeel Biyari to partnership, making her the first Saudi Indirect Tax Partner at Deloitte and in the Saudi market.

Hadeel’s appointment reinforces Deloitte’s commitment to provide an array of specialized tax services to its clients in Saudi Arabia. The kingdom is increasing its reliance on indirect taxes which can include Value Added Tax (VAT), Real Estate Transactions Tax (RETT), and customs and excise duties as additional sources of revenue. Hadeel will bring her expertise to Deloitte clients in this highly specialised area.

Commenting on her promotion, Hadeel Biyari said, "It’s been an incredibly rewarding journey for me at Deloitte, leading our offering of Indirect Tax Controversy and Litigation in Saudi Arabia. This is a constantly evolving ecosystem that requires a great level of understanding of the Saudi legislation as well as a high degree of familiarity with the challenges facing businesses operating in the market, which amplifies the need for local expertise".

Throughout her tenure at Deloitte, Hadeel has provided valuable counsel on VAT matters that greatly benefited both local and multinational clients, earning her a well-deserved reputation as a trusted advisor in the field.

Deloitte continuously renews its commitment for gender balance through increasing female representation in both partnership admissions and other leadership roles, as 24% of the organization’s latest list of partner admissions in the Middle East were women. Deloitte’s emphasis on achieving gender equality extends beyond the organization into the society, as it leads the way on complex challenges facing women through a variety of societal impact projects.
