Lindum Group are currently looking for a Tax Management Accountant. The appointed person will join our accounts team to lead on tax related matters including PAYE, VAT, CIS, Corporation Tax, Stamp Duty, Pensions and Life Insurance. The role will also include some input in to monthly management accounts, and statutory account preparation and will include reporting as well as commercial input into operational matters, joint venture companies and land transactions.

The role would suit a person with an accounting qualification (e.g. ACA, ICAS, ACCA OR CTA) and experience in those areas, although an interest and willingness to learn and train in those areas would be equally acceptable to experience. It is a great opportunity for a candidate with experience of corporate tax or VAT to progress and grow within a dedicated team.

Applicants will be considered from a range of backgrounds; you might be an ACCA who is studying for CTA and currently working in an accounts role with some tax; you might be an Assistant Manager in corporate tax or VAT in a larger accountancy firm or perhaps in mixed tax, or you might be someone with an accounts qualification that has a  strong interest in tax and is looking to develop your skills and knowledge.

You won’t be expected to know how to do all the aspects of the role immediately and will be trained on the areas that you don’t know.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Preparation and submission of the VAT returns.
  • Preparation and submission of the Corporate Tax Returns.
  • Attendance at Divisional Board Meetings.
  • Support and advise on CIS, IR35 and other employment tax issues.
  • Management of the payroll tax function and management of the tax relating to the Lindum Group share scheme.
  • Managing the relationship with HMRC and external advisors.
  • Dealing with a wide variety of practical queries about tax from within the business.
  • Ensuring processes and policies are in place and managed regarding tax risks.
  • Project work such as tax for joint ventures and acquisitions.

What we’re looking for

  • A recognised relevant qualification e.g., ACA. ICAS, ACCA or CTA.
  • Exposure to UK tax matters, this may be corporate tax, VAT, or mixed tax.
  • You will need to be proactive and self-driven, keen to learn and able to seek out information.
  • Tax is deadline-led so you must be able to manage and prioritise your workload.
  • You must have a positive and enthusiastic attitude with a genuine interest in tax.
  • Strong communication skills are essential, with confidence to communicate with a range of colleagues and external contacts such as HMRC and external advisors.
  • It is essential that you are IT literate with good knowledge of Microsoft Office (including Word and Excel).
  • Creating and maintaining documents is a significant part of the role, so you must have a keen eye for detail and take pride in producing work that is accurate and well-presented.

This position is full time (8:30am until 5:00pm) and based at our Lincoln Office.

Lindum Group can offer a competitive salary plus benefits including pension, profit related pay, employee share scheme and opportunities for further training, development, and progression.

You’ll be joining a friendly, fun, practical, and inspiring community. Our team members come to Lindum via diverse paths – what unites us is a shared passion for teamwork, solving problems and looking after our clients.
