We run the Fair Tax Mark accreditation scheme, which seeks to encourage and recognise businesses that are open, honest, and transparent about their operations and taxes – and which pay the right amount of corporation tax, at the right time, and in the right places. We believe companies paying tax responsibly and transparently should be celebrated, and any race to the bottom resisted.
Some one hundred parent companies and 250 distinct trading businesses are currently Fair Tax Mark accredited, who between them employ over 250,000 and contribute more than US$1.5bn in corporation tax annually. Companies have now been certified in Denmark, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden, with further international expansion on the way.
Who we’re looking for
We are looking for a chartered accountant (or equivalently trained and experienced), with experience in business and financial reporting. You should be comfortable reading and understanding sets of accounts, preparing tax reconciliations and understanding deferred taxes, and a confident and skilled communicator.
We would ideally like someone who can work in our Manchester city centre office, but we will consider hybrid or remote working applications for the right candidate (although the place of work for this role must be in the UK).
About the role
You will be a vital part of our accreditation team, guiding existing and new clients through the accreditation process. You will assess them based on financial records, tax reconciliations, group structures, ownership and control and more, to produce reports and recommend the actions necessary to achieve Fair Tax Mark accreditation.
You will also have opportunities for related work that meets your skills, interests, and professional development goals. This could include research, travel, writing content (e.g. blogs, articles), media, networking, webinars, public speaking, and other specialised projects.
