Corporate & Indirect Tax
In Corporate and Indirect Tax, you’ll help clients - from the largest organisations to budding entrepreneurs and high‑net‑worth individuals - manage their tax risk, understand their obligations and comply with complex legislation. You’ll tackle a broad range of work that includes multinational advisory projects, mergers and acquisitions advice, tax compliance and researching business issues that affect clients’ tax affairs. You’ll work with clients on matters critical to their business including interpreting developments in case law, the implications of moving into new territories or introducing new products.
