Senior Corporate Tax Manager

Bristol

This is a unique Senior Corporate Tax role where you would be operating as an “in-house” Corporate tax advisor to clients for their UK tax responsibilities  for a large accountancy firm. There is no responsibility for business development, practice development, billing or pricing. The role is very much about delivery and maintaining client relationships.

There is flexibility to work in Bristol or remotely. A generous remuneration package and benefits.

The role will include the following :

  • Review and sign off for partner review, all UK corporate tax returns and computations (c150 entities). Liaise with clients to obtain approval to file with HMRC, support junior team members in ensuring all filings completed by the deadline.
  • Support clients in ensuring compliance with UK Quarterly Instalment Payments, this will be a mix of preparing calculations for client review and approval and reviewing client calculations. Currently approximately 30 clients are in the UK’s QIPs regime.
  • Advise clients on corporate tax payments to be made where not in QIPs (note junior team members will draft tax payment calculations).
  • Support the Statutory Reporting Team in reviewing and sign off of current tax and deferred tax balances to be included in annual financial statements for UK entities.

Note that corporate tax deliverables etc for non-UK client entities are responsibility of local office (mix of office and third party affiliates).
