The main focus of our team is to manage and protect business value by managing a wide range of taxation related matters and by ensuring that we correctly comply with the tax laws and reporting requirements in each of the countries we operate in.
We also support our businesses with technical advice and we are responsible for a coherent groupwide approach to important tax law changes, as well as assisting with tax audits and tax authority enquiries. As we are integrated in the Group Finance function we can take on a central role, sharing best practices across the business.
To many people tax laws may seem boring or stuffy but our team's support, as well as our good relationships with tax authorities and consultants, can often make a significant difference to our businesses - which makes our job very satisfying! The large footprint of the group also requires us to travel overseas regularly and this is great way to meet new people, see new countries and experience business and life in different ways.
