EY's US VAT practice helps clients identify areas of risks and opportunities and provides sustainable planning opportunities to our clients in support of their need to manage foreign indirect tax matters. Our key objective is to help clients meet their compliance obligations and business goals around the world, providing the perspective and support needed to manage indirect taxes effectively and efficiently.
Our tax function is constantly evolving, and it's here you'll find everything you need to grow as we do. It's all about taking on new skills and responsibilities as they arise and making the most of our dedicated mentors and training programs. Our US VAT practice advises the firm's multinational clients on non-US indirect tax matters. Specific services include advice on VAT, Goods and Services Tax (GST), Consumption Tax and other similar transaction taxes which are typically experienced by multinational companies when conducting business in foreign jurisdictions.
Your key responsibilities
You'll spend much of your time providing the knowledge, experience and resources to bridge the gap between what is expected of a company's US tax department and its often limited knowledge of VAT in foreign jurisdictions.

We'll expect you to be knowledgeable about the global business challenges companies are facing and how those challenges affect a company's indirect tax position around the world.
