KPMG is part of a global network of firms that offers Audit, Tax & Pensions, Consulting, Deal Advisory and Technology services. Through the talent of over 16,000 colleagues, we bring our creativity and insight to our clients’ most critical challenges. With offices across the UK, we work with everyone from small start-ups and individuals to major multinationals, in virtually every industry imaginable. Our work is often complex, yet our vision is simple: to be the clear choice for our clients, for our people and for the communities we work in.

~~The Tax & Pensions practice delivers services ranging from taxation and compliance advice for private and corporate clients, to assisting organisations in areas such as Global Mobility Services. We also assist pension funds (or the companies that sponsor them) to manage pensions issues. Our activities are diverse in scope, but can be grouped according to the different business issues they help our clients address.

The Tax Centre of Excellence aims to challenge and modernise the way that the Tax & Pensions practice delivers tax compliance services to our clients by centralising the activities relating to the preparation and finalisation of tax computations and returns within the Tax Centre of Excellence. All staff working in this area will be required to demonstrate exceptional tax compliance skills, the ability to work to tight deadlines and produce a first class product ready for issue to our clients. This will involve working closely with tax professionals based in all of KPMG’s UK offices, along with our offshore partners, to deliver a seamless service to our clients.
