In-House Tax Compliance Senior Manager

I’m currently working on a really interesting role that offers the successful individual the chance to develop their advisory experience and with opportunity for career progression. Initially the role requires the right candidate to take ownership and lead on a number of different Reporting & Compliance workstreams and closely liaise with the Global Head of Tax and the wider finance team and external advisers. The role holder - ideally a strong tax accountant - will be expected to think and act strategically whilst maintaining a close grip on the detail across two business divisions and 30+ jurisdictions globally. Aside from managing the outsourced corporate tax compliance function and leveraging that support to bring activity in house where possible, the role will require responsive and flexible support on ad hoc matters which will include advisory, M&A and discrete broader projects. Experience of planning, implementing and documenting Tax and Finance processes will be a distinct advantage

The role includes:

  • Review and/or preparation of tax provisions (including both current tax and deferred tax) and tax disclosures at entity and consolidated group level including a relatively large number of UK companies.
  • Work alongside advisors to manage the tax aspects of the year end audit and consolidation process. 
  • Ensure that internal resources, processes, and controls are in place to produce accurate tax reporting, including identifying and implementing finance and tax process improvements as necessary.
  • Managing the outsourced tax compliance process, including ensuring timely filing of tax returns for all entities within the Group including focus on the end to end process to ensure review and filing of all UK tax returns
  • Management in house of the wider compliance requirements with UK tax legislation impacting the group, including the provision of advice and related workings in relation to CFC & CIR.
  • Formulating a process for booking and reporting tax balances and ensuring that payments are effectively tracked and exploring the possibility of using existing technology to provide a regular report/snapshot.
  • Use current EBITDA level financial forecasts to provide indicative ETR forecasting.
  • Enhance and maintain relationships with regional finance controllership to improve the Group governance framework as it relates to Tax. This will include:
    - Managing Group Tax Strategy publication, SAO process and input into CCO compliance
    - Enhancing and maintaining relationships with wider Finance teams to ensure that quarterly Tax Reporting Questionnaire is circulated and adequate responses received from Controlling teams.
    - Maintain/manage a Tax Risk Register
    - Ensure reconciliation of corporate income tax and withholding tax balances and produce a cash tax estimate model
  • Preparation of tax forms to assist in obtaining treaty exemptions or reduced withholding tax rates.
  • Provide advice on various UK compliance and advisory matters.
  • Maintain and expand technical tax knowledge through professional development activities.
  • Take a lead role in working with internal colleagues and external consultants to automate data analysis and review processes, leveraging off the companies systems and data platform.

To be considered for this role you will be qualified (ACA / CT) with 7-8 years of international tax reporting and compliance experience across industry and/or in a major accounting firm in a corporate tax department.  

The company is a fast-paced business with multiple workstreams requiring attention at any one given time. The Tax team and function have a multitude of legacy and go forward tasks to manage to improve compliance and business partnering activity. The candidate must be hands on, resilient and passionate about the opportunities presented by this role and sees the opportunity to grasp all aspects of the reporting and compliance function to grow and thrive within the business.
