£50,000 to £60,000
Corporate Tax Advisory Assistant Manager - London (with very hybrid working)
My client is looking to continue growing their Corporate and Business Tax team are now looking for a Corporate Tax Assistant Manager to join its exciting and growing department. The right candidate will work alongside both the senior management team and partners, to provide bespoke tax advice to clients, and also our team of in-house commercial and private client solicitors, to implement that advice. This is an extremely exciting time to join a fast growing, ambitious firm with private equity backing.
Key Tasks and Responsibilities:
The role of a manager in our team offers excellent opportunities to work on a broad range of tax advisory projects and clients to develop the right candidate`s overall tax advisory skills. The right candidate can expect to spend around 80% of their working time working closely with the partners and more junior members of the team to deliver tax advice to the firm`s clients. The candidate will get full exposure to client facing communication and working on projects all the way from initial engagement through to the legal implementation. The candidate would also be expected to play an important role in the development of their peers and more junior colleagues on a day to day basis, both technically and professionally.
The candidate would be expected to manage the delivery of advice to the partner for approval and this consists of a good balance between working with more junior resource in the team and reviewing their output and also being responsible for the preparation and delivery of bespoke advice direct to the partners. The candidate would also have good exposure to working with partners on pitching for new clients both remotely and in person.
The firm`s clients consist largely of OMBs and large corporates and as such advisory projects regularly consist of the following matters:
-Structuring corporate transactions such as s.110 reconstructions, statutory demergers and company share repurchases and advising clients on the availability of any relevant reliefs. As well as preparing and delivering the initial advice, we frequently work with the appointed legal practices to ensure that their work preserves the desired tax outcomes.
-The right candidate would be expected to have and develop a good working knowledge of a variety of taxes such that consideration can be given in the advice to the full scope of relevant taxation such as corporation tax, income tax, capital gains tax, VAT and stamp duty/SDLT.
-To the extent necessary, the candidate would also be required to prepare tax valuations and clearance letters for submission to HMRC in respect of such transactions.
-Managing full scope tax due diligence projects and liaising with other members of the wider tax team to deliver reports covering corporation tax, PAYE and VAT (and any other relevant taxes) on such assignments.
-Advising on employee share incentives such as EMI schemes and preparing the relevant valuation reports for submission to HMRC.
-Advising on the qualifying conditions for certain tax reliefs such as EIS/SEIS and making advance assurance submissions on behalf of the clients.
-A significant amount of our advice is delivered in the form of written reports and the candidate will be required to both write up technical tax analysis and apply this to the clients facts in a clear and coherent manner as well and review work prepared by more junior members of the team and ensure it is accurate prior to delivery to the partner.
Although the role is predominantly advisory based, there will be a requirement to assist with the compliance work that falls within the team. This would typically consist of:
-Reviewing the preparation of more complex corporation tax returns, often for groups, international or larger clients of the firm.
-Supporting our General Practice through the review of some annual computations for their audit clients as well as working closely with them to provide support for technical tax queries that come out of their work and their clients.
The ideal candidate should be client focused with a solid knowledge base and experience of aspects of income tax self-assessment, PAYE and Corporation Tax compliance procedures that will allow them to supervise members of the team who deal with the areas. They should also have an understanding of accountancy principles and be CTA qualified.
