Corporate Tax Assistant Manager (Inhouse)

Location: London

Capability: KPMG Business Services

Service line: IHQ

Experience level: Associate/Assistant Manager

Employment type: Full Time


Department Information



We are the in-house tax team for KPMG International (“KPMGI”). This is a unique opportunity to work in an internal rather than client-facing KPMG team.

KPMGI carries out business activities for the overall benefit of KPMG network firms, but does not provide professional services to clients. One of the main purposes of KPMGI is to facilitate the provision by KPMG network firms of high-quality audit, tax, and advisory services to their clients. For example, KPMGI establishes and facilitates the implementation and maintenance of uniform policies and standards of work and conduct by the KPMG network firms, and protects and enhances the use of the KPMG name and brand for the benefit of these entities.

The in-house tax team for KPMGI works on a wide and varied range of tax matters across direct and indirect tax. Some of the work is UK focused but much of the work is international, dealing with a variety of jurisdictions outside the UK. We drive the tax strategy, which means understanding KPMGI’s business requirements and interacting with a variety of internal and external stakeholders to provide tax advice and ensure that tax obligations are met around the world. The work is varied and we operate in a challenging and stimulating environment.



Like many in-house tax teams, KPMGI outsources its compliance and also appoints advisors to assist on specific projects. Where we use outside advisors, the tax team is responsible for actively managing the advisors, scoping their work, agreeing their fees, receiving and reviewing output and communicatingfindings and action points to the business.

Role and Responsibilities



We are looking for a full time assistant manager who will be based in Canary Wharf, London.
There is minimal travel required.
The role reports into a London based Tax Director, with the Head of Tax based in the US.
Other than the Head of Tax, all of the in-house direct and indirect tax team are based in London.

The successful applicant will demonstrate an entrepreneurial attitude by working on a variety of advisory and compliance projects. You will need to be capable of taking ownership of tasks and thinking through technical and business issues, and will relish a role which is constantly changing according to the needs of the business and the requirements of the KPMG network firms globally. We are however a close knit team and you will receive guidance and support from other team members to develop and growing this dynamic environment.

Typically, projects involve interaction with other teams within KPMGI (e.g.commercial, legal, finance) and with the tax team at the relevant KPMG member firm. With the support and guidance of other in-house tax team members projects might include:

• Being responsible for tax compliance filings in a number of different jurisdictions, including overseeing the gathering of information, managing advisors and reviewing tax returns.
• Dealing with enquiries from local tax authorities.
• Assessing the corporate tax obligations in various territories and coordinating with the finance team in order to gather relevant data and local tax advisors in order to fulfil any tax filing obligations.
• Assisting on a wide range of ad hoc advisory projects in the UK and overseas, including consideration of financial information and reading relevant legal documentation.
• Assisting with the practical implementation of ad hoc projects, both from a compliance process perspective and a one of transaction / project perspective.
• Monitoring the implementation of significant tax legislative changes aroundthe world (e.g. BEPS) and assessing its impact on KPMGI’s tax position.

Qualifications and Skills


Qualified CTA or equivalent, with a corporate tax background. Some indirect tax experience preferred but certainly not essential.

Experience and Background


• High level of drive and enthusiasm and a willingness to learn about new taxes.
• Enjoy working with individuals from diverse backgrounds around the world, and good at quickly building different networks according to the demands of eachproject.
• Strong team player but also capable of working independently and using initiative to find practical solutions to tax technical and business matters.
• Strong project management skills; enjoy dealing with issues crossing overmultiple taxes and multiple jurisdictions.
• Ability to communicate effectively (internally and externally) both in writing and orally, with tax specialists and non-tax specialists, in the UK and overseas.
• UK and international tax knowledge and experience, including experience in tax compliance and reading financial information, and preferably (but not an absolute requirement) some knowledge of indirect taxes.
