This is a key role within the global tax function assisting with all aspects of tax accounting and compliance across Europe. The role will provide the opportunity to gain exposure to project and advisory work, as well as answering corporate tax, VAT, and employment taxes queries from the European business units. Ideally, it would suit somebody looking to make their first move into Industry from professional practice.

Duties include:

  • Review and providing guidance & assistance with tax provisioning and accounting

  • Preparation of the UK Corporate Interest Restriction calculation
  • Preparation of the UK CFC Review

Advisory Activities

  • Assisting the European Tax Manager with restructuring activity
  • Assisting with the identification and implementation of tax risk management policy/framework
  • Assistance with European tax audits (corporate tax, VAT, employment taxes and transfer pricing)

What you'll need to succeed

  • You will be ACA and/or CTA qualified, ideally through a Top 10 Practice. Those from Practice or Industry will be considered.
  • Good tax accounting experience and a proven track record of preparing UK corporate tax computations. VAT compliance experience would also enhance your application, as would a working knowledge of Oracle.
