Our Corporate Tax practice is the largest of all the tax service lines. The scope of work and the range of clients is both wide and deep, covering technical planning for large multinationals through to standard compliance for owner managed businesses, dealing with the UK tax authorities.
We offer highly technical and innovative solutions to some of our clients’ most complex problems. In addition, our professionals have a highly specialist knowledge of the industries in which our clients operate. Together, these two factors mean our tax team is widely recognised as the best there is.
Not only will you learn from our experts on the job, we’ll also give you every chance of success and with full time study periods and internal guidance you'll get the best possible support.
Even as a graduate you’ll have responsibility from day one. The first thing you'll notice is that you’ll have control over your own career. This means the freedom to make a number of your own choices, and while you'll find assistant managers giving you work from the moment you arrive, it pays to be proactive; the ability to make decisions is key to a successful career in corporate tax.
You'll also find you have client responsibilities right from the off. This might simply involve speaking to a client to clarify a nugget of information, or attending client meetings and advising on the tax status of their businesses. Either way, it won't be long before you're on first name terms with your main client contacts.
You’ll benefit from the practice’s wealth of expertise and knowledge. Through a continual programme of internal and external training, you’ll learn not only about the technical aspects of tax that set us apart from our competitors but also about the industries in which your clients work, whether this is financial services, sport, leisure, real estate, manufacturing, technology, or any other industry you can think of.
As your career progresses so does the level of responsibility. You’ll become the first point of contact for many of your clients and they’ll rely on you for a quick and accurate answer to their tax queries. You'll also find yourself working in dedicated client teams incorporating a wide range of specialisms and experience, so that when you don't know the answer to a client query you can quickly speak to another team member who does.
Of course there are the exams, which are quite tough. But let’s face it, if they were easy everybody would do them, and being a Chartered Accountant wouldn't look quite so good on your CV. Here, you'll be given every chance of success, and with full-time study periods and internal guidance you'll get the best possible support.
Importantly, you won't be alone; among your graduate intake you'll meet a large group of like-minded people, many of whom will become longstanding friends. Together you’ll learn from each other’s experiences and typically you'll always find plenty of time to socialise and cement those relationships further.
