Tax & Finance Compliance Manager – Hitchin

Tax and Finance Compliance Manager, qualified Accountant with expert VAT knowledge, Hitchin, to £60,000

A newly created opportunity for an experienced and qualified Tax and Finance Manager to join the UK head office finance team of a successful, international manufacturing business.

As the Tax and Finance Compliance Manager, you will provide key support to the Head of Finance in all aspects of Tax, but in particular with UK and European VAT compliance, so you are likely to have extensive PQE in these areas.  Your main responsibilities in the role will include:

  • Ensuring that the Finance function is pro-active in the management of its taxation compliance needs for existing and future legislation.
  • Working with the business and Finance colleagues to plug gaps in existing processes and system capabilities to improve compliance and/or reduce cost through taxation inefficiencies.
  • Reviewing new contractual documents for financial consequences, to ensure no adverse terms/risks are unknowingly signed up to
  • Identifying compliance gaps in any one entity for parallels across all group companies, and rollout as necessary.

In order to fulfil the above, you will need to create and maintain a register of taxation requirements, policies, submissions and legislation, to ensure all implications for the business are understood and met, reviewing internal processes and procedures for compliance purposes.  You will lead improvements in master data to enable policing of compliance (e.g. CIS VAT need for customer data capture), taking learning from across the organisation to ensure consistency of process and application, and spread internal best practice

This role will hold a high profile with executive stakeholders across the organisation as well as working closely with the Head of Finance, so you will need to be comfortable operating as part of the senior leadership team, instigating and influencing required changes in process.  If this sounds like the sort of challenge you are looking for, and you have the requisite taxation expertise, please send through your CV as soon as possible to secure an early interview for this opportunity.
