Tax & Treasury Recruitment Specialists (TTRS) are delighted to be recruiting a VAT specialist for this instantly recognised brand in the automotive sector.

With the effects of Brexit and Covid altering the landscape, VAT has been brought to the forefront of the landscape for many businesses and this role promises to be both professionally and intellectually stimulating and rewarding for the successful candidate.

Working within a close knit team you will be reporting into the supportive UK Tax Manager and your responsibilities will include but not be limited to:

  • External and internal VAT compliance and reporting, including preparation of monthly and quarterly VAT returns.
  • Preparation of claims and VAT return to overseas tax authorities for recovery of overseas VAT.
  • Being the first point of contact for all VAT queries and adding value to the business via solution-orientated, compliant and tax efficient advice provided across the UK group.
  • Providing VAT advisory support for projects in the UK and Europe.
  • Providing advice to other business functional areas such as Customs, Purchasing, and Logistics.
  • Identifying and implementing tax planning opportunities in line with the Group’s Tax Strategy.
  • Ensuring the business complies with all relevant tax legislation and HMRC Guidance, while maintaining the relationship with HMRC.
  • Providing support for preparation of corporation tax computations and monthly management account tax provisions.
  • Providing support for preparation of Income Tax returns for inbound foreign service assignees.

To be considered you are likely to be CTA/ACA/ACCA qualified although those with demonstrable and detailed experience in VAT advisory will be considered. This role will most suit those with at least 6 years VAT experience and have a Big 4/ Top 10 background. An interest in the sector is highly advantageous but not essential. Please note that this role can be based in London or the North East.

If this sounds like you, and you are interested in a professionally rewarding role with a great team please get in touch with an up to date CV.
