The Firm

The Firm is a Chartered Accountancy practice which specialises in providing bespoke tax advice. Our clients are based mainly in London or further afield and so we are essentially a London Firm, but based in Sevenoaks to provide a better work/life balance. The clients range from large companies where we provide tax consulting advice through to high tech start-ups that are growing rapidly, where we provide the advice they need on tax issues and also other support on compliance issues.


We are recruiting an experienced corporate tax professional to oversee a portfolio of clients from Owner Managed Businesses to UK corporate groups. The individual will manage a number of ongoing tax engagements, develop and mentor junior staff, develop new business and needs to have the flexibility to support the business as required.

The candidate will manage a portfolio of clients and be the prime contact with these clients to provide technical advice, manage the work in progress and fees and identify further advice which would be of benefit to the clients.

There is potential for the right candidate with vision to grow quickly with the Firm and take on a more commercial role and contribute directly to the business growth.

The firm provides highly technical advice to its clients. It is essential therefore that the candidate is able to provide this advice which will be aimed principally at high tech businesses seeking rapid growth including:
  • Advice on R&D Tax Credits
  • EIS relief
  • EMI share schemes
  • Transfer pricing considerations
  • Planning for Intellectual Property
  • Corporate tax advice including reorganisations and reconstructions
  • Complex tax provisions and tax computations
  • Personal tax planning and compliance
  • International tax planning including personal and corporate

It is recognised that the candidate may not be familiar with all of the above and would be expected to learn on the job.

We are offering a competitive salary to attract the right candidate and are able to offer flexible working hours if required.
