Salary Guide £60-70k + Car + Bonus + Pension
Our client is an international business with a very strong brand name and long term history, and with a EMEA regional headquarters in West Hertfordshire.
The company is now seeking a very capable and technically savvy Indirect Tax / VAT Manager to take a lead role for the VAT function in Europe and to act in an internal advisory capacity across a range of issues.  Due to the nature of this role, it is envisaged that this role could be performed on a FULL TIME or PART TIME basis, with additional flexible working arrangements available.    
Reporting to a European Tax Director, the role will include:

  • Maintaining the VAT compliance processes with the SAP system, liaising with IT VAT system specialist
  • Manage and monitor controls around VAT preparation within a SSC
  • Respond to AP and AR queries on VAT issues
  • Manage VAT audits around the group, and interface with tax authorities on compliance issues
To match the requirements of this role, you will have a strong VAT training and will have worked in a specialist VAT role, operating at Manager or Assistant Manager level.  Ideally trained and qualified ACA / CTA (or equivalent), you may have started your tax career with an accounting firm and then made the move to industry to an in-house VAT role.  You will need to be very 'hands-on' with the detail surrounding company transactions, and how VAT is treated, and be able to communicate this effectively to finance / accounts contacts.  You will have sound commercial knowledge, be able to influence at different levels in the business, and be self-motivated.
This role presents an excellent opportunity to work in a high calibre in-house VAT role on a full or part time basis, and with career development possibilities.
