Irrespective of Brexit and what may eventually materialise, the UK tax regime is almost certainly going to remain complex; company and individual errors are going to be made (or disputed) and HMRC investigations will continue to be launched.
Throughout last year and to date, good tax investigations practitioners have been in high demand with a number of London accountancy firms, and several tax investigations teams in particular having expanded as a result of this growing commercial demand.
My client is one such example of a business that has enjoyed an exceptional and sustained spike in new work wins.
This means that they are looking to further expand their tax investigations team with the acquisition of at least one more talented Tax Investigations Assistant Manager or Manager in 2018, building on the previous recruitment of several new staff in 2016 and 2017.
As a brief outline, the tax investigations team helps clients with negotiations and settlements, spanning EBTs, tax residence, domicile and remittance disputes, IR35, ADR and appeals to tax tribunals.
The team is quite diverse and includes ex Big 4 and ex mid tier trained tax advisers, as well as home grown trainees.
The culture is one of hard work, but with a strong undercurrent of team values and a supportive ethos.
In this role, you will enjoy exposure to a wide range of tax investigations client work, building on the knowledge and skills you have already honed, in your career to date.
Further selling points include a competitive salary, flexible working arrangements where desired and plenty of early autonomy in a successful and established practice in London.
