OVERVIEW OF THE TAX SERVICE LINE
At Mazars we’ll help you build on your expertise, experience and ambition to develop a rewarding and successful career. We want you to be yourself, to bring your ideas and creativity and to feel inspired as part of our national tax team.
We provide bespoke advice in all areas of taxation, helping our clients to navigate the complexities of tax codes, often in multiple jurisdictions, and to help them ensure they are fulfilling all their obligations and paying the correct amount of tax.
In this way we help them to manage an area of significant financial and reputational risk and to make properly informed decisions about their tax position whether they are an individual, a business owner or a corporate organisation.
We also help clients resolve any disputes they have with the tax authorities as swiftly as possible.
We cover every aspect of taxation for clients, whether on employment, corporate profits or gains, movements of individuals or businesses from one country to another, international transactions or on personal income, gains or wealth.
As a trainee in our Advisory Tax Team, your time will be split between working on client projects, business development and studying for your professional exams.
Our Advisory Tax Team focuses on our corporate and private clients, meeting their tax advisory needs in an environment of fast paced economic change, combined with complex and changing legislation both in the UK and overseas.
Our corporate clients range from listed multinationals to domestic owner managed businesses. While our private clients include entrepreneurs, high net worth individuals and owner / shareholders of our corporate clients.
The role will be primarily office based, but with regular opportunities to attend client or other advisors offices, as well as other Mazars offices both in the UK and overseas.
The Advisory Tax Team often find themselves at the vanguard of the client relationship, therefore the role will develop not only your tax technical skills, but also the wider project management of multi-disciplinary projects.
The role will therefore provide an opportunity to work with colleagues in different tax disciplines and other service lines across our organisation.
In this way you will gain a broad understanding of the specialist services we can offer to our clients, the value of this advice to them and their businesses and the way that the different streams of work interact with each other and with the wider practice.
