Tax

We help our clients stay ahead of changes that impact their businesses, navigating complexity and risk. We deliver deep tax technical, people and legal expertise, while providing the critical context to make informed and compliant decisions. With clients ranging from multinational organisations and public sector bodies to entrepreneurs and family businesses, the work we do is diverse.

Hear from Ed Stacey, Tax People Leader about what a career in Tax could mean for you - from development, to our culture, to what we value in our people when building our team.

 


A career in our Tax Compliance Services practice, within Tax services, will provide you with the opportunity to help our clients meet and manage their tax obligations across unique but ever changing tax specialties. You’ll advise clients on their local and overseas tax affairs, while acting as a strategic consultant related to business analysis, managing indirect taxes, dispute resolution, and global enterprise tax solutions.

Our team helps our clients with compliance across all taxes, statutory accounting and complex tax reporting. You’ll focus on bookkeeping and monthly reporting, drafting, auditing and filing of local statutory financial statements, and transaction processing.

To really stand out and make us fit for the future in a constantly changing world, each and every one of us at PwC needs to be a purpose-led and values-driven leader at every level. To help us achieve this we have the PwC Professional; our global leadership development framework. It gives us a single set of expectations across our lines, geographies and career paths, and provides transparency on the skills we need as individuals to be successful and progress in our careers, now and in the future.

  • Coach others, recognise their strengths, and encourage them to take ownership of their personal development.

  • Analyse complex ideas or proposals and build a range of meaningful recommendations.

  • Use multiple sources of information including broader stakeholder views to develop solutions and recommendations.

  • Address sub-standard work or work that does not meet firm's/client's expectations.

  • Use data and insights to inform conclusions and support decision-making.

  • Develop a point of view on key global trends, and how they impact clients.

  • Manage a variety of viewpoints to build consensus and create positive outcomes for all parties.

  • Simplify complex messages, highlighting and summarising key points.

  • Uphold the firm's code of ethics and business conduct.
