Tax Jobs - Weekly Highlights

Tuesday, 26 February 2008

This week I am featuring two roles that both have a focus on US tax reporting. They are roles that come up quite often, particularly amongst the large US groups that have to follow the complex US financial reporting rules. Typically based within a European or EMEA head office, London or South East region, the roles are usually at Senior Tax Accountant/Manager level, and will mostly involve calculation of tax provisions under local and US Gaap rules, and possibly including both current and deferred tax. As you will expect, it is difficult to find many candidates that are doing this type of work, or able to do it, for two reasons. Firstly, it is a narrow/specialist sub-set of tax reporting, and follows complex rules, and so is quite difficult stuff. Also, many tax advisers avoid it to try to get onto the perceived higher quality, more interesting tax planning work. I think if you like tax compliance/spreadsheet work, and persevere and become good at it, then like many specialist areas of tax, it can be quite lucrative.
