We've detected that you're browsing this site using a mobile device. To apply for one of our vacancies please visit our website using a non-mobile device sush as a laptop or desktop computer.

You’ll join a growing network that works with clients across a range of sectors – including financial services, consumer products, technology and energy – each with its own specific indirect tax challenges.

As indirect taxes are transactional, to be a good adviser you need to understand the commercial detail of what your clients are selling and to whom, in order to give the correct advice on what to do. In many teams, you’ll advise international clients so you’ll also have exposure of working with people from different cultures.

Many countries around the globe have VAT rates of around 20% so helping a client to decide whether to charge or reclaim VAT can have a big impact on its profitability and cash flow. Add factors like the growth of e-commerce and governments’ increasing use of indirect taxes to generate income, and this is a particularly fast-changing tax arena to work in. Some businesses manage tens of millions of pounds of VAT each year and even a small percentage error rate can result in big financial liabilities.

You could be:

  • helping clients pay the right amount of tax and making sure they don’t overpay
  • advising clients on the implications of changes to the indirect tax rules both in the UK and overseas
  • collaborating with clients and colleagues across PwC both in the UK and our international member firms
  • tackling special projects such as a business restructure or a merger or acquisition
  • helping clients respond to HM Revenue & Customs enquiries and disputes
  • making sure a client’s indirect tax reporting is accurate by working with them to introduce more efficient internal processes and controls
  • working with clients to litigate disputes at the courts.

As an example, our Indirect Tax team recently advised a household goods manufacturer on the consequences of relocating some of its business to another country. To make sure the business could comply with its indirect tax obligations and prevent unexpected costs we had to liaise with around twenty of our international member networks across the world; work closely with colleagues from other areas of PwC UK; and have lots of discussions with our client’s Indirect Tax team to advise them on what they needed to do.
