One of Europe's fastest growing companies, based in the FinTech sector, is actively recruiting for a newly created Tax Manager role within their Head Office tax team based in London. This role will work closely with the existing members of the team in the management of their global tax compliance obligations, with primary responsibility for the US and Latin American region as the business continues to scale up at a rapid rate.

Responsibilities:

  • Take the lead in all outsourced US and LATAM tax filings. This includes forecasting payments, ensuring returns are accurately prepared, and making sure all filings are made in a timely manner. Elements of this may be taken in-house over time.
  • Ownership and preparation of year-end tax schedules for US, Canada and Latin American entities. This includes calculating tax provisions and disclosures for local financial statements and working together with other members of the Group Tax team on group consolidation.
  • Be completely on top of all new tax laws and cases, ensuring our operations are fully in line with latest practice, guidance and regulatory requirements. This includes monitoring for local regulatory changes, case law, OECD digital taxes, and any other developments that affect the region.
  • Support the International Tax Manager on ad hoc research and projects from time to time, including expansion into new countries, monitoring transfer pricing charges, intra-group debt, and ensuring we are compliant with rules around CFCs, PFICs, interest restrictions etc.
  • Work closely with financial controllers, accounting, and finance system teams.
  • Build relationships with non-finance teams to understand how the wider business works.

This role will offer a high level of autonomy and responsibility. It will enable you to broaden your skills and develop experience in other taxes, countries and projects, working in a dynamic and commercial role. Given the growth rate of the organisation, this role will inevitably evolve over time, so the ideal candidate will need to be proactive, independent and excited at the prospect of solving unfamiliar problems.

The ideal candidate will be a fully qualified ACA / ACCA / CTA / CPA or similar, with a strong initial grounding in corporate tax, either within the UK, Europe or even the US. They will ideally have gained expouse to tax issues across multiple international territories and demonstrate a proven ability to pick things up quickly.
