Tax Senior Job Description

A Tax Senior job description will seek someone with tax experience looking to pursue a career solely in the area of taxation and gain qualified status in that discipline.

Tax Senior Job Description: Skills And Attributes

A Tax Senior will already be qualified or willing to study towards an ATT or CTA-level qualification and have some previous taxation experience (usually two years).

In addition to these qualifications, the Tax Senior will be recognised as a key member of the team, using their tax experience to support the analysis, planning, and advice process on clients’ taxation.

As the Tax Senior role centres around compliance and governance, knowledge of legislation, and the need to keep abreast of any changes, must also be reflected in the job description. 

The role requires an individual who understands the value that taxation advice, planning, and analysis can provide for a client. For this reason, the right person needs to be both technically proficient and willing to develop their skills as a taxation adviser.

Staying calm under pressure and being a natural problem solver, they must also have the skills to resolve issues promptly.

In addition to all of the above, they will need excellent communication skills, as this role is client-facing.

  • All elements of tax compliance and tax advisory for both personal and corporate tax matters.
  • Operating in an advisory capacity, part of your role as a Tax Senior is to understand and nurture relationships with your clients and partners, providing much-needed taxation advice on acquisitions, mergers, restructures, and tax investigations.
