Job Description

Indirect Tax TMT Manager


Our Indirect Tax professionals help clients to manage their indirect tax compliance obligations, identify opportunities and mitigate indirect tax risks. They use their deep experience and knowledge of different legal and regulatory systems around the world to help clients manage their global indirect tax footprint as well as achieve their business goals.  In an ever-changing world, our indirect tax professionals provide pragmatic commercial help, so clients can improve their day-to-day reporting and management of indirect tax. This includes improving working capital, reducing errors, reducing costs and generally ensuring indirect taxes are handled correctly. They advise how indirect taxes such as value added tax (VAT), or goods & services tax (GST) affect the client’s supply chain and financial and accounting systems.
