Jayne Stokes, Deloitte Middle East, is a director in the international tax service line based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). She has been with Deloitte in the Middle East for the past eight years after relocating to the region from Deloitte's entrepreneurial tax practice in London.

Jayne has a broad range of experience advising across all aspects of her clients' tax affairs, including corporate income tax, indirect taxes and employer taxes.

Since joining the Middle East practice in 2010, Jayne has worked with a number of multinational entities investing into the region, across a wide range of industry sectors, with a specific focus on emerging markets. Jayne is a leading adviser on Iraq tax matters, having provided tax advisory support in relation to a number of high-profile engagements, including advising clients with respect to structuring their operations into Iraq and the wider region and a number of M&A transactions. She has been called upon to provide tax technical opinion on tax disputes between taxpayers and tax authorities, and in commercial negotiations between contractual parties, including in relation to court of arbitration proceedings. Jayne has also been appointed leader for Deloitte's global employer services (GES) practice for the Middle East, assisting clients with all aspects of their global mobility programmes advising on tax, social security and immigration considerations for employer and employee.

Jayne has contributed to a number of articles and publications on tax and financial considerations on investment into the Middle East, and has spoken at several external conferences and seminars on related themes. She was also recently interviewed by CNBC Arabia on the current investment climate for foreign companies looking to do business in Iraq.

Jayne holds a master's degree from the University of Sheffield and is a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants England and Wales.
