Job description


Tax Advisor (1446)

We’re a national law firm with a local reach. Our philosophy is ‘Expert Hand, Human Touch’ – something you’ll find in the way we work with our clients and how we support our teams. But, we’re more than just a law firm – we’re a team, working together to help individuals and businesses navigate life’s ups and downs.

Whichever team you join, working here you’ll feel a part of our friendly and inclusive environment. We’ll value you for who you are and what you bring. We support each other and push boundaries to achieve incredible things, and make a real difference to our clients and communities.

The work we do has been recognised in the awards we’ve won. We’re committed to being even better, and our awards help to show we’re on the right track.

Our Team

You’ll join our friendly boutique accountancy and tax team based in Chichester. The team deals with a wide range of work for its high net worth and global UK clients. As part of a dynamic law firm we work closely with our lawyer colleagues, helping the firm’s clients with their tax compliance.


Your Role

You’ll be able to demonstrate an awareness of profitability and you’ll be expected to provide efficient, cost effective work using commercial software. Using your experience, you’ll prepare and review annual self-assessment tax returns and capital gains returns for a portfolio of clients, both UK and non-UK resident, and assist with disclosures to HMRC.

As a result of growth, we’re looking for an enthusiastic and client focused individual to join the team dealing with complex self-assessment returns, advice and disclosures to HMRC. Many clients will have an international aspect to their UK tax affairs. Some experience in that field would be helpful but training can be provided. You’ll also be expected to assist with building business development relationships within the firm.

You’ll be an exceptional communicator with the ability to provide professional tax advice to clients and colleagues across the firm as well as offering advice to a wide range of clients on income tax and capital gains tax. You must be comfortable liaising with a range of third parties including financial advisors and trustees both in the UK and overseas.

What we’ll need from you:

  • ATT, CTA, ACCA or ACA qualification
  • An ability to handle your own caseload
  • Experience of preparing trust and personal tax returns
  • Excellent communication and organisational skills
What we can offer you
  • 25 days annual leave, with the opportunity to buy additional leave
  • Two fundraising days in a year to give back to the community (fully paid!)
  • Westfield Health membership, offering discounted leisure and travel and refunds on medical services

We also offer a huge number of well-being initiatives to encourage positive mental health both in and out of the workplace as well as flexible working options to ensure that you are fully supported to work the way that best suits you. Our social responsibility programme is fundamental to who we are. We’re committed to being a diverse and inclusive workplace where our colleagues can flourish. We have a range of groups to celebrate our people across sexuality, disability, age, gender and culture.
