At KPMG, our Values define who we are and the way we do business. As a leading professional services firm, we know that our strength and capability come from our people: their different perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds.

Deal Advisory Tax is a dynamic and successful area of KPMG’s Tax & Legal business.  We have an inclusive and collaborative leadership strategy and are making bold changes to our culture and how we work.  A constantly changing and high-profile field, we work in a fast-paced, challenging and rewarding environment, and can offer a broad range of quality career paths to ambitious people.

The Role

Deal Advisory Tax provides market leading services to both Financial and Corporate investors.  Whilst we have teams focused on clients in our three performance groups of Financial Services, Corporates and National Markets, we are a national and connected team, working and learning with each other.

Our clients have UK, European and Global investment strategies.
  • Corporates:  We work alongside some of the most forward-thinking FTSE 100 and 250 businesses, supporting them with strategic acquisitions, carve outs, de-mergers, disposals, and joint ventures both in the UK and cross-border.
  • National Markets:  We work across the UK with mid-market corporates and PE funds, looking to invest across key UK sectors to grow our local economies.

The Deal Advisory Tax team provides advisory services across the whole deal spectrum including buy-side due diligence and structuring, sell-side vendor assist and vendor due diligence, refinancing and listing support. Deal sizes can be anywhere from £10m to +£10bn – we work with a variety of clients and on a variety of deals.

We help our clients understand historical tax issues and structure transactions, with a continuous focus on maximising value throughout the investment cycle. Working collaboratively across the KPMG network, our work often involve advice on multiple countries, taxes, and work streams.
