High growth international business in Bristol currently recruiting for a Group VAT Manager to join an expanding Group Tax function
IVC Evidensia is Europe's largest group of Veterinary Surgeries and one of the fastest growing Private Equity backed companies in the South West. Now with over £1.3bn of sales and operating in twelve countries, the business has a strong values based culture and is professional, success driven and with huge ambitions.
As the business continues to grow it has become necessary to create a Group Tax function, and as part of this newly created function Morgan McKinley is exclusively supporting IVC Evidensia to recruit a Group VAT Manager, which is a pivotal and fantastic opportunity to join a rapidly expanding business on a trajectory for a potential future listing.
Reporting into the Europe Head of Tax, this role will provide VAT technical support to the business, in areas such as applicable VAT rates, integration of new business and partial exemption methodology.
You will provide support with advisory matters related to M&A, manage the VAT control framework and provide support to the Financial Accounting Team who undertake the preparation and review of VAT returns across the Group.
To be considered for this role you will need to be a graduate Chartered Accountant or Tax Adviser, with post qualified experience and a proven tax record in VAT gained in either practice or industry (or combination).
You will need to be open minded with the ability to work at pace and a 'can do' attitude. Strong VAT knowledge across multiple territories is highly desirable, and you will be naturally inquisitive, with the ability to manage key advisory relationships and communicate effectively with non-tax professionals within the business.
All third party applications will be forwarded to Morgan McKinley for consideration.
Morgan McKinley is acting as an Employment Agency and references to pay rates are indicative.
