Europe Head of Tax required for leading South West business
Morgan McKinley is working with one of the fastest growing Private Equity backed companies in the South West, to recruit a Europe Head of Tax. Now with over £1bn of sales and operating in more than ten countries, our client has a strong values based culture and is professional, success driven and with huge ambitions.
As the business has grown it has necessarily needed to comply with increasing tax regulations, more regulations have come into force, and it is imperative that opportunities to optimise tax paid are realised and the appropriate tax planning strategies are being implemented.
Responsibilities of the role will include devising and implementing direct tax planning strategies to minimise the impact on cash and effective tax rate, and working closely with senior stakeholders to ensure coordination of the direct tax consequences of operations. You will also manage the outsourced professional tax advisers to calculate year end CIT tax provisions for each group company, and ensure compliance with cross-border transfer pricing requirements. The remit of this role will also include leading the UK and Mainland Europe on operational tax issues, identifying tax implications of direct taxes and developing and improving processes.
To be considered for this role you will need to be a graduate Chartered Accountant or Tax Adviser, with significant post qualified experience and a proven tax record in corporate tax gained within an international environment, ideally in a similar in house tax role. You will need to be open minded with the ability to work at pace and a 'can do' attitude. Experience of another tax jurisdiction is essential, and you will be naturally inquisitive with a desire to challenge yourself and progress your career in a successful market leading business.
This is a pivotal and fantastic opportunity to start up a tax function in a rapidly expanding business on a trajectory to be listed.
Morgan McKinley is acting as an Employment Agency and references to pay rates are indicative.
