Requisition # HOU003FN

Post Date Sep 10, 2019

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.

The opportunity

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. You’ll team with colleagues that have experience in foreign country VAT taxation, structures and solutions. 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.

Skills and attributes for success

  • Demonstrate a detailed understanding of common principles of VAT and ability to effectively apply them to client situations

  • Manage multiple projects and junior team members in the execution of the technical matters and operations of the practice

  • Research VAT legislation, case law and other VAT guidance to support Senior Managers and Partners on client engagements

  • Participate in and lead educational sessions on developments in international VAT legislation and case law

  • Translate your technical skills into practical solution-oriented advice, creating added value for our clients

To qualify for the role you must have

  • Bachelor’s degree in Finance, Accounting, Economics, Tax, Law or a related field and 5 years of progressive, post-baccalaureate work experience in Tax. Alternatively, will accept a Master’s degree in Finance, Accounting, Economics, Tax, Law or a related field and 4 years of work experience in Tax.

  • A minimum of 4 years of VAT/ indirect tax consulting experience or equivalent experience in business or working for the government

  • Detailed exposure to VAT taxation, country-specific or multi-jurisdictional VAT consulting and VAT compliance

  • Excellent managerial, organizational, analytical and verbal/written communication skills

  • 20 to 40% travel, of which, 10% may be international, to serve client needs

Ideally, you’ll also have

  • A proven record in a professional services environment

  • The ability to adapt your work style to work with both internal and client team members

What we look for

We’re interested in people who are ready to become a part of a highly engaged, diverse, and dynamic team to help us continue to make a real difference to our clients. If you have a strong client focus, the ability to develop meaningful relationships and the ambition to deliver above and beyond expectations, this role is for you.
