In-House Indirect Tax Manager, Financial Services
City of London - remote working available
£80,000 + 20% bonus & benefits
A leading financial services business with a brand name is recruiting an In-house Indirect Tax Manager. With the indirect tax returns being completed by the finance team, the scope of this position is advisory-led, while holding oversight (i.e., review) of VAT compliance matters.
Reporting to the Senior Indirect Tax Manager and collaborating with a mid-sized team (all with roots in the Big 4), this makes an ideal first step in-house for the recently promoted VAT Manager, coming from a dedicated FS indirect tax team.
Responsibilities will include, but not be limited to:
- Oversight of group quarterly VAT return.
- Providing routine indirect tax support and advisory to business units (UK and international) on VAT matters, enquiries and international projects.
- Support the ongoing maintenance of indirect tax procedures and controls within the tax risk framework.
- Direct liaison with tax authorities for indirect tax related matters and enquiries.
- Spotting opportunities for continuous improvement within the indirect tax function, including supporting with ongoing tax governance/risk process design and implementation.
- Building an internal/external network to educate the business and influence on indirect tax interests on an industry level.
The successful candidate's CV should demonstrate:
- CTA qualification
- Prior UK VAT advisory experience, ideally within a complex and regulated business
- Has reviewed indirect tax returns
- Prior experience working with a partially exempt business
- Prior financial services experience and the ability to grasp complex matters
- International VAT advisory experience is desirable, but not essential.
What the successful interviewee looks like:
- A technically competent advisor, who can provide a pragmatic approach to advising business units.
- Communication skills, including the ability to relay complex information to generalist finance and business stakeholders.
- Stakeholder management skills, including the ability to push back to senior parties where necessary.
- Ownership of continuous professional development and keenness to remain up to date with emerging legislative developments.
