Personal Tax Specialist Job, Reputable Independent CA Firm, Stirlingshire, £dependent-on-experience
Your new company
You will be working for a well-regarded independent firm of chartered accountants with several offices, offering a range of accountancy services throughout Central Scotland. This business has brilliant staff retention - a result of an excellent culture, good work-life balance and interesting client base. However, a couple of individuals will be retiring following over 20 years' with the firm, thus they are looking to engage with candidates with good personal tax experience.
Your new role
As the Personal Tax Specialist, you will be responsible for a portfolio of private clients, managing relationships and their tax compliance obligations. In addition to preparing and submitting personal tax returns, you will support the Partners with tax advice on more complex planning projects. This will involve liaising with clients over email, the phone and in person (the latter following the pandemic). You will also regularly speak with the tax authorities and answer any ad-hoc queries. Working closely with the Accounts Department, you will also offer informal tax training where required.
What you'll need to succeed
You will have a proven track record of completing personal tax returns for private clients. You will also demonstrate excellent communication and organisation - essential skills for managing a portfolio. A supporting qualification, for example ATT, will enhance your application but is not a requirement.
What you'll get in return
Along with a good salary reflecting your level of experience, an interesting client base and good technical development, flexible working options may also be available on a case by case basis. You will join a welcoming and friendly firm, allowing for a good work-life balance. A rare opportunity for a tax professional in Stirlingshire, this may also reduce your commute.
