Chuan Keat Khoo

Tax Partner and Tax Leader of PwC Malaysia and PwC SEAPEN (South East Asia Peninsula) - PwC, Malaysia

"Though my primary objective was to qualify as an ACA with ICAEW, I decided to also pursue the CTA (and ACIS) qualifications simultaneously to complement my accounting qualification and be a more rounded professional. I was a prize-winner in both the ACA and CTA exams.

I passed all the 3 professional exams and worked in London for 8 years. Upon my return to Malaysia, I continued my career as a chartered accountant in Audit with Price Waterhouse. Two years later I was transferred to the Tax division because of my CTA qualification when a resource requirement arose.

Hence, I am an accountant by profession and a tax man by accident! I have remained with the Tax practice since and it's now almost 30 years!! I am currently the Tax Leader of PricewaterhouseCoopers Malaysia and PricewaterhouseCoopers SEAPEN (South East Asia Peninsula).”
