The business currently seeks to recruit an inter-company tax specialist, a newly created role that would be equally suited to a Corporate Tax Senior seeking a move to industry from practice, or an established inter-company tax/treasury specialist. The role is offered as a permanent, full time contract and can be operated on a predominantly remote basis for those that seek it. 

This will be an interesting and unusual role with a high performing company and works as part of an experienced and comprehensive finance team.

- Assume key responsibility for cash management strategy

- Work to ensure UK and European customs requirements are adhered 

- Manage multi-currency purchasing and working capital management

- Cashflow forecasting

- Creating and managing multi-currency banking provisions

- Regularly liaise with external auditors and tax consultants

For this role personality is key as the successful candidate will act a key point of contact for tax enquiries across the business, internally and externally. The Company Tax Accountant is likely to hold a professional qualification (CTA/ACA/ACCA/CIMA), and will need to have broad range of taxation knowledge gain in either practice or internal business tax. Whilst not essential, prior experience gained in a services, retail or e-commerce setting would be highly desirable.  The position will call for a candidate with strong technical taxation/treasury knowledge and an up-to-date understanding of current UK tax law. You’ll need strong knowledge in statutory frameworks and very strong IT skills. It’s going to be a challenging, but extremely rewarding position where the successful candidate will be an essential point of contact for all queries and support assistance. 

The rewards here are big as you might expect with a high profile, fast growth business.
