Skelhorn joins PwC in Prague to lead indirect taxes

 In Uncategorized

On 1 April 2007, Peter Skelhorn (49) joined the Tax and Legal Department of PricewaterhouseCoopers Czech Republic as a partner responsible for leading the continuously growing PwC VAT and customs practice in the country.

One of his main aims is to ensure that the PwC VAT and customs practice in Prague is at the forefront of helping Czech businesses – and overseas businesses with a commercial presence here – to plan and organise their affairs to minimise their VAT and customs compliance costs. Peter has spent the last 18 years helping businesses across Europe deal with their VAT and customs obligations and has recognised during this time that the costs associated with meeting their obligations are often significant:

“Traditionally, minimising VAT and customs compliance costs has focused on reducing the tax and duties burden itself. Whilst this remains an important and legitimate part of the equation, businesses are increasingly recognising that significant savings can also be made by ensuring that the processes and systems used for reporting VAT and customs liabilities are secure, effective and efficient. This is an area that PwC Czech VAT team is increasingly helping its clients to explore,” says Peter.

Prior to joining PwC, Peter worked for the UK tax authorities and another Big 4 firm in the UK. He has extensive experience in areas such as VAT planning, compliance and risk management for both the private and public sectors. His last initiative was to help clients evaluate the effectiveness of their internal VAT function in order to reduce costs by streamlining systems, processes and controls. His goal is to help Czech businesses benefit from this approach to VAT and customs.

Peter is interested in history and likes hiking and sport.
