During his Internship, Siva worked on several projects including Superannuation Plans, Intangible Assets and Business Combinations.

On completion of his Intern year, Siva accepted a permanent position with the AASB and continues to work on a range of projects including accounting for business combinations, consolidation, investment companies, joint ventures, associates, intangible assets and management commentary.
