Rafiko will bring over 10 years’ experience in advising on corporate tax, having pursued his career with top 10 UK firms.
Whilst he advises on a wide range of corporate tax matters, he has developed a specialism for assisting owner-managed, family and larger businesses with the tax implications of corporate restructures, mergers and acquisitions, employee incentives, R&D tax relief claim and capital allowance claims.
Commenting on his new role, Rafiko said: “I am delighted to have joined Streets and to be starting a new and very exciting chapter in my career. I look forward to working with existing and new clients and developing strong personal and trusted relationships, helping to support them with their goals, aspirations and success.
“In the short to medium term, I envisage being busy supporting and advising on the tax implications of decisions around structures and strategy as clients look to manage their businesses and investments.”
Paul Tutin, chairman and managing partner, suggested that the last few years have seen a significant growth for the firm geographically.
He said: “As such we have been looking to ensure we service effectively the needs of both existing and new clients, especially those seeking Corporate Tax advice. Recruiting an additional Corporate Tax Partner has been something we have been looking to do for some time, though finding someone with relevant expertise and commercial drive has not been easy.
“We have therefore been extremely fortunate in attracting Mustafa to the firm.”
Rafiko’s appointment brings the firm’s combined number of partners and directors up to 44 and is supported by more than 200 members of staff.
