BDO has hired José López Zamudio, who joins from Cuatrecasas, to lead its Tax department in Andalusia
José López Zamudio (pictured) has eighteen years of experience in the Tax field, most of them at Cuatrecasas. Prior to joining BDO, he had headed the Tax department of Cuatrecasas’ Malaga office, which he joined in 2016 from the same firm in Seville.
López Zamudio has extensive experience in different areas related to Tax advice for companies, sale and purchase transactions and business restructuring, family business and wealth Tax planning, as well as actions before the Tax Inspectorate.
This incorporation is part of BDO’s growth strategy in Andalusia in the different service areas it provides to its clients. In this line, the Tax department is reinforced as a result of the good performance of the department in recent years.
José María Silva, BDO Andalusia managing partner, said: “José López Zamudio brings to our team a qualitative leap in our Tax advice to Andalusian companies to continue our development and growth in this practice in the region.” And he added: “We advise companies from all sectors and industries, with a special dedication to companies with a high technological and digital component, and to the new generation of Andalusian companies, those that have had a recent differential development and a high growth potential, startups and family businesses in traditional sectors.”
For his part, José López Zamudio said: “I am very excited about this new stage and the opportunity to contribute and collaborate with an exceptional team. BDO’s Tax department has great specialists in all areas of Tax Law: transfer pricing, indirect taxes and customs, international and personal taxation and Tax Litigation.”
BDO has two offices in Andalusia, in Seville and Malaga, with 40 professionals and two partners, Gema Rodríguez, who heads the Malaga office, and José María Silva, who is responsible for Andalusia. BDO in Spain achieved a growth of more than 3% in the last financial year, with a turnover of more than €108 million and more than 1,200 people in the 13 offices in Spain.
