The tax landscape is constantly changing. Your knowledge will help high-profile organisations, entrepreneurs and family businesses understand complex rules and make informed decisions with significant impacts.
You’ll work with a range of clients from day one to understand their business affairs and discuss how tax rules apply to them. This could be with entrepreneurs or individual employees; advising on complex personal tax issues and implications of international assignments. Or with large multinationals; from local and overseas corporate tax compliance, to the tax implications of business decisions and how they reward their people.
We’ll support you to apply your knowledge, to develop your network and understand the breadth of the tax services we provide to our clients. You’ll also develop key professional and transferable skills right from the start, giving you the foundation to develop your career as an agile and client focused tax professional.
But that’s just the start - our Tax practice is a varied and exciting place to be and we pride ourselves on career mobility.
We take the time to ensure that you’re fully prepared for client engagements and can talk confidently about our complete Tax offering - from the more traditional Tax processes, through to the revolutionary technologies we can offer our clients. Our approach combines a market-leading innovative internal tax training programme with an accelerated professional qualifications pathway (where applicable) to allow you to apply your expertise directly to client issues early in your journey.
You’ll also use the latest technology to support your work. Whether that’s communicating to clients and their employees in another country, implementing new pay structures in line with tax rules or advising businesses on their corporate tax obligations.
You can choose to apply to our Tax teams through two routes; our core Tax programme which gives you the opportunity to rotate across our Direct, Indirect and Reward & Employment Tax teams in the first two years of your PwC journey, or through our other Tax programmes where you’ll specialise from day one.
As part of our core Tax programme, you'll work across our Direct, Indirect and Reward & Employment Tax teams:
In Direct Tax you’ll help clients manage their tax risk and comply with complex legislation. Our clients are wide ranging: from FTSE 100 companies and global organisations, to budding entrepreneurs, high- net worth individuals and family businesses.
As part of our Indirect Tax practice, you could be involved in everything from advising clients on the VAT implications of their UK activities, to a global project looking at the clients’ supply chain. Or considering the impact of case law developments, to advising on a merger or acquisition.
This multidisciplinary team advises clients on the most effective way of incentivising and rewarding their employees. You’ll draw on your problem-solving and analytical skills to develop reward structures that support business strategy, drive appropriate behaviours, and are considered fair to shareholders and employees alike.
If you’re intrigued by law and what it means for our clients, a role in our core Tax teams could be right for you. You’ll also like to keep up-to-date with any tax-related changes, be systematic, have a good eye for detail and be passionate about helping clients come up with commercial and ethical solutions to their problems. And of course, you’ll be good with people too. To find out more click here.
