A unique opportunity has arisen for a Corporate Tax Manager to the Corporate Tax team of a busy Top 20 Firm of Accountants in London assisting with the Film & TV Client Base. Candidates should be educated to at least A level (or equivalent) and ideally degree level and will have the relevant professional qualification (ATT/CTA/ACA/ACCA).

This firm offers accounting, audit and assurance, business advisory, corporate finance, forensic and litigation, outsourcing, tax, and VAT services. We act for businesses and individuals both in the UK and internationally. Our staff works regularly and closely with their colleagues in our regional offices to provide a seamless service to clients, wherever they are located.

The London Tax Department is currently split into six tax groups consisting of a corporate tax team, a VAT team, three personal tax groups, and a tax advisory group. The department comprises 12 tax partners, and over 80 employees, with the majority being tax professionals. The position will form part of the corporate tax group within the London Tax department, but the vast majority of the workload will relate to clients of the Film & Television Team, which provides a wide range of audit and accountancy advice and related services to companies in the sector.

The substantial growth of the firm's offering in the Creative Sector means that an additional Tax Manager is required to support existing clients and to capitalise on new opportunities to deliver other high-quality services. The clients include all the major Hollywood Film Studios, many leading independent film production companies, and some of the largest Television Production companies in both the UK and the USA. Also, this firm act for leading Video Game publishers and developers, and a range of related industry companies such as post-production and visual effects providers, film financiers and agents.

The successful applicant will be responsible for managing their portfolio of corporate clients, and for dealing with a wide variety of compliance and advisory services. Duties will include:
·Reviewing and submitting Film, Television and Video Game Tax Credit Claims
·Advising clients on the conditions of qualifying for these and other Creative Sector Tax Credits
·Advising on Production Structures and reviewing structure documentation to ensure they are compliant
·Managing the corporation tax affairs of other companies and groups within the sector
·Delivering high-quality tax advisory services to clients on a wide range of issues
·Assisting with ad hoc projects including due diligence, restructuring, R&D, share schemes
The successful candidates will report to Tax Partners in the London tax department, but will also work closely with audit colleagues in the London Film & Television Team.

The ideal candidate will be a committed and experienced corporate tax adviser who is already operating as a Manager, with excellent technical and organisational skills. Experience of working with clients in the Creative Sector would be an advantage, though not essential provided the candidate had a track-record of delivering a high standard of client service and dealing with intricate technical work. A natural team player is crucial, with a positive and enthusiastic attitude.

Education and experience
Candidates should be educated to at least A level (or equivalent) and ideally degree level and will have obtained a relevant professional qualification (ATT/CTA/ACA/ACCA). Previous experience at Manager level in a corporate tax role, preferably in a Top 20 firm.
