Life at Deloitte

Tax

Shea Yu, Senior Consultant

Can you tell us about your background and what area of Deloitte you work in?

I graduated from the Taxation School of the Central University of Finance and Economics in Beijing with a major in International Taxation in June 2018, and joined Deloitte Tax team in October. I am a "Deloitte baby" and I am now a Senior Consultant in the Transfer Pricing Team, providing clients with services including tax planning, transfer pricing compliance, and advance pricing arrangements.

 

What do you love about being a tax advisor?

Solving problems for different clients at any time requires me to handle multiple tasks at the same time. Though my busy life brings me challenges, I have enjoyed major achievements and new experiences in which I challenge myself every time.

 

What two things about your team surprised you? 

My team is very supportive to new joiners. When I first joined, they understood my situation of being new, and accepted the mistakes I made. They valued my strong points and also helped to guide me to accelerate my future.

The women leadership I saw in the team broke free from the stereotype of "secondary role". They are "girls that can do everything". This is what attracted me – I can always see possibilities and opportunities to break the "glass ceiling".

 

What three words describe the future of Tax? 

Change, innovation, challenge.
