This role will be responsible for the following:

  • Collection, collation and review of financial information for preparation of indirect tax returns and filings
  • Preparing quarterly UK VAT returns for review by the Indirect Tax Manager
  • Researching and responding to basic indirect tax queries from other departments/other members of the finance team; assisting the Indirect Tax Manager in the resolution of more complex queries
  • Performing periodic sample checks to ensure that tax-relevant procedures are being correctly followed (e.g. checking samples of purchase invoices, sales invoices and expense entries for correct VAT coding)
  • Collection, review and provision of information to external advisers preparing overseas VAT returns
  • Assisting in the preparation of corporate tax returns and of year-end tax reporting schedules for the Group’s annual statutory audit

The ideal candidate will be studying either qualified or studying for their accountancy qualification (ACA, ACCA or AMCA) and would ideally be looking to study either ATT or CTA, although this is not essential.
