We have an exciting opportunity to join the Agricultural Team at our Banbury office.  You will provide support for Directors of the agricultural portfolio in providing professional accountancy services to fee paying clients to include financial reporting, corporate taxation, personal taxation and planning, audit and assurance.  In addition, through experience and knowledge, you will start to take responsibility for the largely agricultural focused portfolio and support more junior staff in their agricultural journey.

This is a new role for us and we are excited to welcome into the team someone with a real passion for the outdoors, a good working knowledge of agriculture / farming and a desire to grow and develop their accountancy career.

Your responsibilities will include: -

  • Preparation of accounts and review of accounts and tax returns prepared by other members of the team, clearing all review points to director level. This will predominantly be farming businesses but will also include partnerships and sole traders.
  • Working towards developing relationships with agricultural clients to become their first point of contact on day-to-day matters.
  • Ensure that necessary adjustments are made to accounts after review and prior to finalisation with the client.
  • Job tracking and management to include preparation of draft documents.
  • Preparation of tax computations for review.
  • Delegation of work to more junior staff and monitor progress, including review of work once completed.
  • Highlight any deficiencies with client records or areas for concern and recommend actions for improvement.
