In this role, Farah will lead a team of more than 550 tax professionals in Malaysia who provide tax services to a broad range of clients across all principal industry sectors and market segments in Malaysia.
Farah has more than 20 years of professional experience in the field of taxation, particularly in managing corporate tax engagements and working with large multinational, public companies across a variety of sectors including services, telecommunications, property development, construction and manufacturing. She has also advised on special government initiatives and studies on tax matters as well as lent insights into government policies for specific sectors.

Farah is a firm believer in supporting the next generation of tax professionals and initiated the EY Young Tax Professional of the Year (YTPY) program in Malaysia in 2013 to create awareness of the tax profession and encourage the young to consider a career in tax.
Dato’ Abdul Rauf Rashid, Malaysia Managing Partner, EY, says, “Farah’s appointment demonstrates our focus on diversity and commitment to inclusive leadership. Like other Malaysian women EY leaders, including Yeo Eng Ping, who is the EY Asia-Pacific Tax Leader, Farah brings with her a unique perspective and has a strong track record in supporting diversity and inclusiveness.”

In this transformative age, tax functions have a strategic role as businesses seek bold and creative business models that will drive efficiency and sustainable growth. Businesses need to understand the impact of international and local developments and technology transformation on their business operations, supply chains and capital structures. Our EY Tax professionals in Malaysia and across the global EY network are well-positioned to help our clients redefine their tax functions and formulate their tax strategy and plans to achieve long-term business success.”
