Tax Senior

The Firm was established by Declan Cunningham in July 2005. Declan was Head of Tax consulting in the London Entrepreneurial Services Office of Ernst & Young and we continue to provide similar advice now to our clients. The Firm continues to grow and we are recruiting for a new role.

The Firm is an Accountancy practice which specialises in providing bespoke tax advice. Our clients are based mainly in London or further afield and so we are essentially a London Firm, but based in Sevenoaks to provide a better work/life balance.

The clients range from AIM companies where we provide tax consulting advice through to high tech start ups who are growing rapidly, where we provide the advice they need on tax issues and further support on accounting issues.

Our Offices in Sevenoaks are centrally located within easy walk to the Station and so are accessible by train or by car.


We are recruiting a newly qualified or part qualified accountant who is interested in making a career in tax to work on a portfolio of corporate clients from Owner Managed Businesses to UK corporate groups. It would be helpful, but not essential that they also have an
understanding of personal tax.
The individual will work under the supervision of a Tax Manager to keep the compliance position of their client portfolio up to date. In addition, they will assist on tax planning assignments working with a Manager or direct with Declan Cunningham. The firm provides highly technical advice to its clients. It is essential therefore that the candidate be able to grow into an advisory role in time and work with other members of the
Team to provide support on tax technical issues including:

• Corporate tax advice including reorganisations and reconstructions
• Complex tax provisions and tax computations
• Advice on R&D Tax Credit claims
• SEIS/EIS relief
• EMI share schemes
• Transfer pricing considerations
• Planning for Intellectual Property
• Personal tax planning and compliance
• International tax planning including personal and corporate

It is recognised that the candidate may not be familiar with tax planning issues and would be expected to learn on the job and with formal training for the CTA exams. This is an ideal opportunity for someone to gain experience over many areas of taxation. The candidate is expected to have experience in preparation of corporation tax computations, preferably using Alphatax or IRIS software. We are offering a competitive “London” salary to attract the right candidate and are able to offer flexible working hours if required.

About you:

You will likely be a recently qualified (ACA/CTA), commercially-minded individual who is looking to gain tax experience in an intellectually challenging environment and advance your career with a firm that will truly recognise and reward outstanding contribution. You will have
experience of preparation of corporate tax provisions and computations and the delivery of a range of corporate tax services within deadlines.
You should also have good communication skills, be systematic, diplomatic and focussed.

Work will include:

• Control of the tax compliance of a portfolio of companies, including monitoring time
• limits.
• Preparation of tax provisions for statutory accounts including liaison with the client
• and external auditors as appropriate.
• Preparation of corporate tax computations using Alphatax or IRIS
• Dealing with HMRC correspondence
• Providing support on a wide range of projects
• Working on clients with international links
• Developing key client relationships
• Understanding the client’s business and helping to identify areas for the provision of
tax advice
• Carrying out detailed technical research in a variety of areas
