Helping you find a career in the taxation industry
People employ tax experts to ensure that they operate within the law when it comes to finance and paying the correct amount of tax. They also help a business save money, where possible, and do all the necessary calculations and admin work associated with tax.
You could work towards a Chartered Tax Advisor (CTA) qualification, which opens up a huge range of roles within taxation as it is the highest level of tax qualification available in the UK. If you are interested in law or finance and are excited by the prospect of fast-paced work then this role will suit you perfectly.
Tax can have particularly busy periods, particularly towards the end of the financial year (April) or when tax returns are due. It will also require a strong aptitude for numbers and maths, as the work is quite intellectually challenging.
Typically you will work in-house and be dedicated to a single company or work in a tax advice firm that will have clients that could be companies or individuals.
A career in tax is also perfect if you'd like the opportunity to work abroad, particularly if you specialise in corporate tax.
