Based in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, our client is a multi–site retail company looking for a qualified accountant to joint them as Tax Manager.
This job would suit a qualified ACA/CTA/ACT or similar, with a minimum of 4 years' experience in a tax position. This team is responsible for meeting many facets of the group's compliance obligations, including its tax compliance obligations, cash flow management and risk management. The Tax Manager should be able to independently drive forward proactive tax advice for the various stakeholders within the business and manage the tax compliance on a timely basis.
This company is the market leader within their sector having gone through significant growth both organically and through acquisitions. The Tax function was set up 3 years ago and this is an additional person to support the Head of the function.
The job covers many different areas of tax across multiple countries so this isn't a "dry" tax job where you will be doing the same work on a routine basis.
The successful individual will most likely come from a Top 4 or Top 6 practice background but fast track tax professionals who have trained within Industry will be considered. The individual will ideally have experience in indirect taxes and international tax along with experience outside professional practice but this isn't essential. The candidate will be driven by a strong work ethic and will be able to work with senior management understanding the bigger picture whilst also remaining "hands–on" in certain key areas of the tax function.
Duties will include:
* Review statutory audit reports and work with internal accounting team
* Ensure withholding tax obligations are met across a range of business units
* Effectively partner with local advisors to ensure quality deliverables
* Develop and have input into compliance process improvements
* Assist and work with internal stakeholders as required
* Managing enquiries from tax authorities, in conjunction with local advisors
* Research and assess tax implications of business initiatives, with impact on global operations
* Work on analysis and feasibility of international tax planning opportunities
* Interact internally with Finance and Legal to implement tax opportunities
* Financial Reporting
* Review quarterly and year–end tax provision of the business
* Coordination and management of cash flow forecasting and payments
* Intercompany funding and trading payables management
* Monitor legislative updates and technical guidance
This is a great opportunity for a strong Tax professional to join a fast growing business in a position that will offer significant exposure across the business.
