A BDO client will generally have some short-term goals and a long-term vision – but standing in their way will often be a number of tax-related issues. Our job is to act as guides through the complex, ever-changing landscape of tax legislation, to help our clients get where they want to be by the most effective route.

To do this, we must offer many different tax services. These include day-to-day compliance with the tax authorities, advice on employment taxation and international tax, transaction support for deals such as mergers and acquisitions, VAT services, expatriate tax advice and more. Such a diverse offering means we need similar variety in our team. We need specialists who can handle the most technically challenging and sector-specific issues, we need versatile and people-focused individuals who can field a wide range of questions from large owner-managed businesses, and we need brilliant innovators who can work on tailored solutions to address a client’s specific circumstances.

Your journey to becoming a BDO tax adviser will begin in the area of compliance – with responsibilities such as providing figures for a company’s statutory accounts, and preparing their corporate tax returns. As you develop, you’ll progress on to more challenging work, such as advising a client’s on tax opportunities and pitfalls. You will also begin to deal directly with HMRC and get to grips with complex tax advisory projects.

You may also get the chance to spend time in one of our specialist tax areas, or in one of our audit groups, to really explore your options and talents and diversify your experience.
