In-house VAT Systems opportunity

Wednesday, 27 February 2013

With more large group companies switching over to a new or enhanced SAP or Oracle system, this is creating some roles within the VAT / Indirect tax function - i.e. someone with hybrid VAT and IT experience to set-up the correct VAT calculations and procedures within the ERP system.  This is easier said than done, and often creates complex projects, leading to demand for specialist experience.

Below is an example of a role we are currently handling:

VAT Systems Manager
London based | £60,000 - £75,000 + good bens package

Top tier corporate group with prestigious European HQ has created an opportunity in-house for a VAT Systems Manager.
Based in a VAT / Indirect Taxes team, this key role will assist in VAT automation projects working between VAT operations and the IT function.  Key responsibilities will be identifying and assessing VAT processes within the AP/AR environment, VAT determination based on country VAT regulations, and project managing the integration of VAT rules into the ERP / SAP environment.  In addition there will be scope to identify improved VAT systems liaising across the business, tax  and the IT environment.
To meet the challenges of this opportunity, you will have a strong initial VAT / indirect taxes background, having transitioned into a tax / VAT systems based role at Manager level.  In terms of VAT, you will have strong knowledge and awareness of EU / international VAT principles and will have seen VAT  ’in action’ in different countries.  You will also have a good overview on VAT compliance processes and demands from VAT / tax authorities.  In terms of IT exposure, experience of working on VAT within SAP will be an advantage, although consideration will be given to any detailed experience within other ERP systems.
In addition, you will have strong commercial acumen, good skills at communicating with senior executives across a business, and ability to work in a multi-team environment.
This role is based in the London area, and with occasional travel in Europe when required.

For more information on this role, or to apply for the above position, please contact us through the Talentpool website.
