The position is for a full-time Corporate Tax advisory Director whose main responsibilities will be:

  • Helping manage the Corporate Tax compliance and advisory team across our offices

  • Helping UK and international clients structure their affairs tax efficiently

  • Helping manage the client relationship to become the trusted business advisor

  • Working closely with Kreston colleagues across the globe

  • Taking the lead role in a variety of ad hoc tax advisory projects for SMEs and larger corporates

  • Helping manage and expand our CT compliance service

  • Reviewing more complex corporation tax returns and computations

  • Assisting us with growing our business and winning new work in the marketplace

Our corporate clients include a broad range of sectors and industries and include entrepreneurial growth companies, larger corporates, multi-national groups, FSA regulated companies and AIM listed PLCs.

The role is largely office based and includes significant client contact. There will also be some travel between our offices based in London, West Sussex and Kent.

Working with all partners, but reporting directly to our head of corporate tax, applicants must have an exceptional knowledge of UK corporation tax and also need to have a sound grasp of other business and personal taxes to not only ensure clients are fully tax compliant but to also identify tax planning opportunities.

Exposure to international tax issues such as double taxation relief, double taxation treaties, transfer pricing, thin capitalisation and CFC’s is desirable, but support and mentoring will be given as needed.
