Our client are looking for a UK tax specialist to lead on corporation tax reporting matters (IFRS, UK GAAP and Solvency II) and to oversee other areas within the team's remit (VAT, IPT and general advisory matters).
While they are looking for somebody with technical expertise in tax reporting, you do not need to be a technical expert in indirect tax matters - rather, to have the confidence to get to the bottom of why things are as they are and to ask questions.
