An exciting role working for a LUXURY RETAIL GROUP in Central London with a globally recognisable brand presence has come to the market. This is an excellent opportunity for candidates with some in-house experience OR candidates in practice looking to make a move in-house.

As the VAT Tax Manager, your focus is to ensure the company stays compliant across all jurisdictions in relation to indirect taxes (VAT), along with providing expert advice and guidance to all internal and external stakeholders.

The ideal candidate will have an in-depth knowledge of UK tax legislation (particularly in VAT), and a keen interest to learn about international tax regulations in relation to trade. Knowledge of Goods & Services VAT (food in particular) will be an added bonus.
