Indirect Tax Specialist, Financial Services, Edinburgh, £dependent-on-experience + benefits + agile working

Your new company
An expanding and highly reputable Financial Services organisation is offering a brilliant opportunity for an individual to join their VAT technical team in Edinburgh City Centre. A dynamic and fast-paced organisation at the forefront of their service, they are a brilliant employer with strong prospects. If you are customer-centric, with strong experience in indirect tax, this is an excellent role which will develop your technical knowledge and expand your business acumen.

Your new role
Working in a friendly and established in-house VAT technical team, you will manage indirect tax compliance. This will involve accurately calculating the VAT liabilities, completing returns and ensuring the efficient payment to HMRC within statutory deadlines. Further to this, you will review VAT computations completed by more junior members of staff and answer queries from colleagues and third parties, with the view to mitigate risk and ensure tax efficiency. In order to full-fill these responsibilities, you will develop and maintain an up-to-date VAT technical knowledge and maintain client data. Finally, you will take a lead on managing the ongoing project of Making Tax Digital. This will involve regular liaison with software providers and the IT department.

What you'll need to succeed
You will have strong knowledge in indirect tax, whether that be in a compliance and/or advisory capacity. This may have been gained within Practice, Financial Services or another in-house capacity. Knowledge of SIPP and SSAS will be helpful, and good knowledge of accountancy software and/or Making Tax Digital will enhance your application. You will be articulate and organised with good people skills.

What you'll get in return
You will receive a salary in line with your experience as well as an array of benefits including 25 days annual leave plus statutory holiday, 5% employer pension contribution and death-in-service. Standard working hours are 9am to 5pm, however flexible working is available and the ability to work remotely regularly post-pandemic is on offer.
