Current Tax Technology Job Opportunities

Thursday, 25 February 2016

As you can imagine, the tax technology market is a very niche world. Opportunities arise when there is a distinct need for someone to perform a hybrid role whereby tax (more specifically tax calculations or tax process) interact with IT systems.  
The tax part can cover any one or combination of taxes - corporate tax, VAT/indirect tax, personal tax are the main ones, but also products / systems that cover more specialised areas such as FATCA, transfer pricing, withholding taxes. 

The IT part can cover ERP functionality or a tax calculation tool or a tax database / warehouse system, or simply a form of Excel spreadsheet taken to the next level.

Although niche, this market in Europe is very buoyant currently, and we are seeing a wide variety of roles coming up across the consulting firms, software houses and in-house with large-end multinational groups.
