Day to day you'll be:

  • Taking ownership of compliance processes, including the preparation and finalisation of CT returns for group entities, ensuring adherence with appropriate risk management principles.
  • Supervising tax reporting matters, including preparation of tax accounting and reporting disclosures for individual entities and as part of quarterly group reporting cycles.

What you'll need

  • Experience in UK Corporate Tax compliance and accounting (specifically IAS12), whilst demonstrating a sound understanding of legislation and applicable case law.
  • Professional qualification (either accountancy or tax specific such as ATT/CTA), with strong knowledge of UK Corporation Tax are both essential requirements for this role.
  • Experience in preparing and reviewing CT returns and related tax accounting/disclosure matters.
  • Strong, natural relationship management skills, with the ability to analyse, challenge and influence.

And any experience of these would be really useful

  • A good understanding of risk expectations for a tax function impacted by SOX, Senior Accounting Officer and Public Tax Strategy regimes.
  • Curious about learning how to use technology solutions to provide efficiencies in the team.
  • Proactive engagement in self-development and professional training initiatives, as well as guiding other team colleagues.
