VAT Accountants - consider a new career direction

Tuesday, 3 July 2012

We are currently actively looking to speak to VAT compliance professionals - either working for large multinationals and/or with international VAT / Intrastat compliance experience, or at Consultant / Senior VAT Consultant level in a Big 4 / Top 10 firm in the London area.  Great opportunity to move away from doing VAT compliance and to be part of a leading tax technology firm in a research capacity.  
VAT Research Analyst / Senior Analyst
London | £30,000 - £45,000, depending on level of experience
Our client is a leading provider of tax systems and technology solutions.  This is an expanding international business, offering very attractive opportunities for those interested in pursuing a career in tax/IT systems.
A new opportunity has been created to join the company within the tax content / research team, and to have a focus on VAT & Indirect Tax technical research.  Reporting to a Manager, and having liaison with sales, software developers and implementations experts, you will be responsible for researching and interpreting VAT rules and legislation in a variety of countries across the EU and into Asia / Latin America.  You will need to apply excellent and creative research skills to analysing and understanding how VAT operates, and to keep abreast of changes in tax law.  You will also conduct presentations on tax compliance rules and be involved in other special projects.
In terms of suitable backgrounds and to fit with this role, you will ideally have experience in VAT / indirect tax compliance, either gained in a professional services / large tax services firm or as an in-house VAT compliance analyst, preferably with a large international organisation.  You will have been involved in researching VAT rules within your role, possibly using research tools such as IBFD or Tax Analyst.  Ideally you will also have a tax/accounting qualification, or be part-qualified ATT/CTA/ACCA or overseas equivalent.  In addition, you will be a self-starter, able to work independently with minimal supervision and with a desire of analysing detail.
This is a fantastic opportunity as a first move into the growth field of international tax systems, offering a solid forward career track for strong performers.
Applications are very welcome from VAT professionals in international locations, although you will be fully eligible to work in the UK.
For more information, please get in touch confidentially with Talentpool Selection

Interpreting which tax laws are currently in place is messy, due to all the tax debates in Washington. I found this website that discusses which most important tax laws are valuable for the 2012 tax season. This basically helped me when I was preparing my taxes and I expect others will benefit as greatly.
