Talentpool Selection has extensive experience in the recruitment and placement of tax specialists in the UK market for Tax Accountant roles based in commerce, industry and banking.
A Tax Accountant job, based within the in-house tax market, would be defined as one which is primarily responsible for preparing tax figures for statutory and/or consolidated accounts in addition to tax computations and filing of company tax returns. The role may also include VAT and employment tax compliance, depending on the size of the in-house tax department.
Typically Tax Accountants are corporate tax professionals with 3 or more years’ experience in tax compliance / accounting, most likely with an ACA / ACCA qualification from a large accounting firm, who have subsequently made the move into an in-house tax role. In terms of career progression and depending on the size of the organisation, a Tax Accountant will stay in the role described for 2-3 years before being considered for promotion to a Tax Manager level. There is then the opportunity to manage and review the work of a Tax Accountant. At the point of becoming a Tax Manager, they can start work on tax planning / structuring issues, while maintaining a close overview of the tax compliance and accounting.
Examples of Tax Accountant roles we have successfully recruited for in the tax market include:
- Interim Tax Accountant (6 months), global shipping group
- VAT Accountant, large retail group
- European Tax Accountant, media & leisure group
- Senior Tax Accountant, FTSE 100 banking group
- Tax Accountant, international property group
One of the ways in which we measure our success in the London tax recruitment market is by seeking feedback and testimonials from both our clients and Tax Accountant candidates.
