Allen Knight

Practice Principal, Tax Transformation

Allen has worked professionally in tax since 1998. What sets him apart is his unique tax transformation and technology experience that is unlike other New Zealand tax professionals.

Allen has extensive experience in transforming tax functions including tax technology implementation, tax process improvement, tax risk and strategy, tax function design and change management. He is driven by a desire for tax functions to operate far more effectively than is traditionally the case. His role at Thruput is to translate strategic tax function objectives into cost effective solutions and deliver through focused project management.

Without effective tax processes, you are leaving too much to chance

Before founding Thruput, Allen was a Senior Manager with Deloitte’s London based Tax Management Consulting practice and was Head of Tax Technology for Deloitte New Zealand. During this time he transformed the working practices of numerous tax functions in Europe and New Zealand and oversaw the development of the Deloitte New Zealand’s¬†corporate tax software suite. Previously, Allen directed tax compliance and reporting operations in Europe for Expedia (NASDAQ listed) and Corbis (directly owned by Bill Gates) and was a tax advisor with Deloitte for seven years.
