Our client is a highly reputable accountancy firm based in SW London. Established in 1993, they are a friendly, boutique practise. As well as dealing with all aspects of accounting, auditing, personal tax and corporate tax, they also deal with offshore tax including domicile and residence. The practise has an international aspect that means they have built up a bank of experience in dealing with double taxation treaties and liaising with tax offices around the world.
As part of thier expansion plans we are currently looking for a Tax Manager.
The ideal person will currently be working in a general practise firm, and have a very good technical tax knowledge. One of their main focuses is on property tax. Therefore the applicant must have a good knowledge of:
- Income tax
- Corporation tax
- VAT (including VAT property tax advice)
- Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings (ATED).
The successful candidate would also be expected to deal with the tax aspects of onshore/offshore bonds and the vesting of shares for employees/directors of large companies.
You will be able to give technical advice on all tax accepts to clients and staff.
The candidate should live within a relatively local vicinity (a journey time of more than 50 minutes would not be appropriate as they would be too far away from the office and would be subject to commuting problems).
The firm is relatively small but highly specialised. They don’t provide any bookkeeping services to clients and generally deal with more complicated problems. Invariably they get jobs that other accountants find too difficult. Therefore the candidate that we are looking for will be at the senior level with specialist skills and knowledge in order to handle the type of complicated tax related issues they face on a regular basis. A junior level or generic accountant from a company such as Tax assist would not be suitable for this role
This is as challenging and exciting a role as a tax related role can get. For the right candidate it is an excellent opportunity to join a vibrant firm and continue to develop their career.
