Tax Senior -Mixed Tax, ATT/CTA support
£25,000- £33,000pa plus full CTA/ATT study support Full-time / office based BGC-01911-TX Permanent
A modern accounting practice on the outskirts of Gateshead are looking to appoint a Tax Senior to take responsibility for their tax portfolio of clients with minimum supervision. In addition they are offering the opportunity for those wishing to further their knowledge, to work alongside the Partner supporting with planning and advisory work.
Applicants will ideally be working towards either their ATT or CTA exams (with full support available by the firm) and possess a minimum of 3 years experience working in personal tax compliance. Those qualified by experience will also be considered and there is no pressure to take on planning work if it is not the direction you wish to pursue
Whilst the returns are not complex you will need to be self sufficient and manage your own workload, completing returns ready for Partner review. This offers a great opportunity to manage your own clients from the outset and gain regular contact and relationship building, dealing with any queries that may arise. The client portfolio includes HNWI’s, Directors and a few trusts and offshore non-residents.
The other element to this position is providing tax planning support to the Tax Partner. Experience in this area is not essential, the firm will happily provide the training and exposure for you to develop your knowledge. This would sit perfectly alongside studies. You would get involved in areas such as R&D tax, capital allowances, de-mergers, re-organisations and share schemes.
The office is Covid safe and provides an enjoyable environment, where staff are sociable and enjoy working together as a team.
The offices have ample car parking and are easy to access with your own transport. There is an element of flexible working and the chance to work a couple of days at home, but as the position offers technical training, working from the office may initially be more beneficial to you.
The position carries a competitive salary along with full study support and twice yearly bonuses for performance.
For those wishing to find a way to transition from pure compliance to more advisory, you won’t find a much better move for your career in a nice friendly and ambitious firm.
