AccountancyAge (one of the UK's premier publications for Accountancy and Tax matters) has released its annual list highlighting professionals who they consider to be "making important contributions to their firms and the industry as a whole".
The list is compiled from submissions from clients, colleagues, and those in the industry.
Following a long process, the review panel listed Waqar at number 19 on the list, with the publication particularly interested in his management of major tax disputes and completion of recent tax qualifications.
Waqar was delighted with the recognition; "This is more of an appreciation of the major impact our team (and the Tax Group) as a whole is having on the tax industry. Law firms are now not just competing with those in the Big Four, but surpassing them".
