New Tax Leader joins BDO Adelaide from PwC

13 April 2020

BDO welcomes new Tax Partner Tim Sandow to the Adelaide office, who joins the firm from PwC.

Throughout Tim’s career he has provided tax advice to a variety of private and public companies, in a range of industries, particularly in relation to mergers and acquisitions, international tax, tax governance, liaising with the ATO, tax consolidations and tax effect accounting. With more than 25 years’ experience, Tim has been appointed to lead the Tax team in South Australia.

BDO Office Managing Partner in Adelaide, Rudy Pieck, said Tim’s appointment is well timed as the firm focusses on ensuring its clients are in the best position to deal with the challenges presented by the COVID-19 crisis.

“Tax is a constant growth area for BDO nationally and we expect this will be intensified as businesses navigate their way through COVID-19, but also as they come out the other side and look to embrace the opportunities the post-COVID-19 environment presents,” Rudy said.

“Tim has strong networks in the tax community - including the ATO, State Revenue Office and fellow tax lawyers and accountants - and we’re looking forward to being able to offer our clients the insights these connections bring,” he said.

“Tim also brings strong knowledge of the natural resources, energy and defence sectors, which is another focus area of the Adelaide office.”
