INTERNATIONAL TAX PRACTICE NETWORK TAXAND has appointed Alain Recoules as its global head of indirect tax.

Recoules is based at Taxand France where he is a partner of Arsene Taxand and an expert in VAT and international trade regulations.

After obtaining a DESS post-graduate degree in company tax management, Recoules joined Arthur Andersen International in 1989. He worked for several years in the financial services practice, and in 1998 he became the partner in charge of a VAT and customs practice that he created at Andersen Legal. In 2002, he joined Landwell where he was joint head of VAT/customs practice and also helped to develop the firm's financial services practice.

Recoules has experience advising companies retail and leisure, computer services and banking and fund management. He is also a member of the French-American Chamber and director of the Institute for Fiscal Policy.

Taxand chairman Frederic Donnedieu said: "We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Alain as leader of our global indirect tax service line. Indirect tax is a complicated area of tax due to fluctuating VAT rates and the introduction of GST pilots which have been used all over the world to help plug national budget deficits.

"Keeping up to date with legislative change to guarantee compliance is of fundamental importance to our clients. Alain has a proven track record and his and the team's experience and knowledge in this field is second to none."
