EY's Financial Services (FS) Tax practice provides tax compliance & reporting, advisory and transactions services to a variety of clients in the Financial Services market. Our team sits within our Global Compliance & Reporting practice and delivers on recurring projects that support our clients in meeting their tax reporting and compliance obligations.
As a Tax Advisor in our team, you can choose to work across one or more of our three sectors - Banking and Capital Markets, Insurance or Wealth and Asset Management - and you will have the opportunity to work on a diverse range of projects. We run several large scale compliance & reporting engagements for global FS institutions which will give you exposure to our clients' (and EY's) global network. That can be balanced with compliance work for smaller UK based clients where you can hone your tax technical skills. Our tax audit base is growing significantly and you will see our clients' end to end tax reporting processes in operation. You will also provide ad-hoc tax advice to your portfolio of clients, and be responsible for managing the day to day client relationship.
Our client base is such that the job is, by its nature, different every day and we want someone who is actively looking for this challenge. An agile approach to working with different projects and people is therefore essential.
