  • You must have experience of advising on transactions and undertaking due diligence projects.
  • Due to the large volume of real estate transactions that the team are involved in, experience of VAT issues involving land and property will be an advantage. However, the transactions that we are involved in can cover any industry, so a good general knowledge of VAT will be essential.

  • Undertaking training both for clients and internally as required

Qualifications & Experience

  • Substantial experience of VAT with a focus on transactions from either an in-house or practice role
  • A good indirect tax technical knowledge (real estate experience would be an advantage but not critical)
  • An ability to communicate (verbal and written) complex technical issues in a straightforward way to tax and non-tax specialists.
  • Strong analytical skills
  • Outgoing and personable and able to integrate with a team
  • Ability to prioritise and manage workload under pressure
