RSM strengthens capital allowances team with new Midlands-based hire

Gurj Sandhu

Leading audit, tax and consulting firm RSM has strengthened its capital allowances team with the appointment of Gurj Sandhu as a new associate director.

Gurj, who joins from a Big Four firm, is an ICAEW qualified chartered accountant and has specialised in capital allowances for the past seven years. He will be based at RSM’s Birmingham office with a remit to support businesses across the Midlands and East Anglia with their capital allowances claims. He has worked on a range of projects across a number of industries, including real estate, retail, automotive and manufacturing.

Capital allowances are a significant form of UK tax relief available to businesses to reduce the effective cost of acquiring plant & machinery and purchasing, refurbishing or constructing property. Gurj’s appointment is part of the continued success and expansion of RSM’s national capital allowances team and broadens the Birmingham office’s tax expertise.

Peter Graham, RSM partner and head of the firm’s national capital allowances team said: ‘There are still far too many businesses across the Midlands and East Anglia who are failing to take advantage of the capital allowances to which they are entitled. Gurj is the ideal person to build our business across the region and his experience will be invaluable to our existing and prospective clients.’
