The Company

Here is an exciting opportunity to fast-track your career. Our client is a highly respected industry leader experiencing sustainable, long term growth. Ongoing expansion has created an exceptional role for an experienced and skilled Tax Accountant. In this fast-paced workplace your skill set will be expanded as you support the Partners and clients in providing research and documentation on relevant income tax matters.

The Role

This brilliant role involves so much more than the preparation of income tax returns and the calculation of quarterly estimated tax payments and provisions. Your exceptional experience will be a key asset as you demonstrate knowledge of industry trends, identify issues and conflicts, and actively communicate solution options to a broad range of colleagues and clients. Your flair for organisation and time management will see you prepare engagement deliverables (such as financial statements, tax returns and work papers), complete technical and strategic reviews as a valued member of the engagement review team, and ensure delivery on time and on budget. You will have a good understanding on Payroll and lodging payroll tax. Not only can you demonstrate excellent technical skills, your tremendous business insights allow you to make a rapid assessment of each client's organisation, procedures and internal policies as you prepare strategic recommendations to pinpoint opportunities for client growth.

Your Skills & Experience

  • Degree in Accounting, Commerce, Business, Finance or related field.
  • Additional certifications - either IPA, CPA or CA (completed or in progress).
  • 2+ years' experience in a Public Accounting Practice is preferred.
  • Experience using MYOB AO, MYOB, Xero, Quickbooks, BGL and MS Office is preferred.
  • Corporate tax experience in a Big 4 accounting firm would be an advantage.
  • Demonstrated leadership and supervisory ability, strong operation, and project management skills.
  • Exceptional ability to communicate verbally and in writing effectively across all levels both internally and externally.

About you

You have a tremendous entrepreneurial spirit, and while your technical knowledge is outstanding, you have the commercial know-how to suggest innovative solutions to improve client tax management. You are highly motivated and a self-starter, and your leadership skills ensure you can motivate and inspire an energised and dynamic team. You are exceptionally client-focused, and you relish the opportunity to research emerging and ever-changing tax issues to strategise effectively with clients and partners on tax planning.

What's on offer?

  • Exposure to a diverse clientele and their financial and tax obligations
  • A fast-growing firm that recognises and promotes the value of work-life balance.
  • Extensive professional development, an outstanding mentoring program and a strong career path.
  • The inspiration of a talented team lead by highly regarded professionals.
  • A valuable opportunity to extend your skill set and enjoy outstanding career growth.
