Indirect Tax - Assistant Manager/Manager (London)

Contract Type
Full Time

Our client is seeking an Indirect Tax Assistant Manager/Manager to join their team as a result of increased workload. The client is a leading outsourcing company that serves the UK SME financial services sector.

The firm is small in headcount (150) but its senior team is headed up by a number of ex big 4 individuals who bring with them a wealth of experience and contacts.

Their business model has been particularly effective given the current trend for big 4 accountancy firms to lose their major FS contacts as a result of audit rotation and new regulations. The client is not a general accounting firm and has no audit department meaning there are no conflicts of interest. This has meant that contacts who would have previously used firms such as the big 4, have seen ex big 4 contacts within the firm and utilised their lack of conflicts and lower charge out rates.

The firm would suit those who are commercial and entrepreneurial as there is great scope to bring in new contacts and go to market. The role itself comes with great autonomy and responsibility and there is fantastic scope for progression to Manager and Senior Manager grades. The client prides itself on providing a non-political environment, free from bureaucracy. Team ethos is at the centre of what they do and they promote a positive working environment where people can progress and develop at their own pace.

The role:

  • Split between compliance and advisory
  • Experience of partial exemption is essential
  • Previous experience of Financial Services is not essential, meaning the role offers the chance for a generalist to become a specialist within the most lucrative area of Tax

The role presents itself as a particularly unique one given the fact the client is not a top 50 accountancy firm.
