Tax Accountant

Reed is looking for a Tax Accountant to join our team in Raynes Park, London.

Reed is the most recognised recruitment brand in the UK, with a rich history and reputation for improving lives through work, for over 60 years.  Delivering recruitment solutions with many household brands throughout the UK and globally, we find new jobs and careers for people from many different backgrounds across multiple business sectors. As trailblazers in our field, our business has depth, and the types of recruiters and the opportunities available across Reed, vary enormously.

We look for people who want an inclusive and collaborative environment, who strive for performance and celebrate team success, in a challenging and rewarding career.

What is this role?

Reed Specialist Recruitment is looking for a Tax Specialist to join its established Tax Team.  This is an excellent opportunity to contribute to the tax compliance, financial dynamics and business strategy of the entire Reed group and to have an impact on these different business areas.

Among other companies the Reed Group includes Reed Specialist Recruitment, Reed Online and Reed in Partnership, and the Tax Specialist will gain exposure to both financial and commercial issues to help develop expertise in these areas.

Your role will involve the preparation, review and filing of tax returns for the whole Reed Group. You will also be researching technical tax issues, analysing financial data and accounting records and report/policy writing to facilitate compliance with guidelines set out by HMRC. You will be liaising with a variety of people both internally and externally to provide tax advice on proposed and continuing activities.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for someone who holds an ACA, CTA or ACCA qualification or a relevant tax qualification. You will also have experience of working either in tax practice or providing in house tax advice to industry.  Experience of UK (and ideally international) accounting regimes is also required. You will need to be IT literate and ideally have experience of Alphatax and Alphatag. Technical knowledge such as tax legislation/guidance, tax systems and processes  is also important.

We are looking for someone who is pro-active in nature, an enthusiastic team player, who is also able to work independently, using their own initiative to undertake independent research into technical tax issues.  You will be a confident communicator who can effectively build relationships with the wider REED group to collate relevant information and deal with queries in an effective and professional manner. Excellent written communication skills are also essential as this role will involve documentation of findings and report/policy writing.
