The Kreston Reeves Corporate Tax team is made up of 25 team members who work across our offices and form part of the wider tax service line of nearly 100 staff. You will be working for clients across the firm which allows for you to work on a variety of projects. The work is fast paced, and deadline driven, therefore, you will need good organisation and priority management skills.

You will be serving a diverse range of corporate clients, from entrepreneurial growth companies and larger corporations to multinational groups, FCA-regulated companies, and AIM-listed PLCs. This is your chance to work with a variety of industries and make a real impact.

We're looking for someone with extensive knowledge of UK corporation tax and its interaction with international tax matters. Your broad knowledge of other business taxes will help our clients stay fully compliant while uncovering valuable tax planning opportunities.

You will be actively involved in tax advisory assignments. Over the past six months, this has included detailed analysis of reorganisations, demergers, loan relationships, EIS schemes, R&D tax credits, employee share schemes, due diligence on acquisitions, and advising on business sales.

  • Review complex corporation tax returns and computations, ensuring compliance with the latest regulations.
  • Providing training and mentorship to a team of three within the Horsham Corporate Tax team.

What we're looking for: 

  • CTA qualified or qualified by experience.

  • A strong ability to take ownership of your work and a proactive, can-do attitude are essential for this role.
  • Exposure to international tax issues such as double taxation relief, double taxation treaties, transfer pricing, thin capitalisation, and CFCs is advantageous. Support and mentoring will be provided. 
  • Experience in training and mentoring junior staff is beneficial – you will be overseeing three people in this role 
  • This role requires occasional travel to client offices, so candidates must be willing to travel when required.

What we can offer: 

  • Financial wellbeing – competitive salary, contributory pension scheme, life assurance, Westfield Health Cash Plan, income protection. Options to increase pension, life assurance and healthcare cash plan (for yourself and/or family)
