What does a Tax Accountant do?

A Tax Accountant manages taxation issues for a business or organisation. You’ll ensure the company meets their tax obligations and makes sure tax returns are completed. You might also work in a business that prepares taxation returns for individual clients. Tax Accountants may also provide taxation advice where necessary.

A Tax Accountant needs to have a strong understanding of the taxation system and the rules applying to their organisation. You’ll need excellent attention to detail and should be highly organised. Tax Accountants need to be good with numbers and be able to use a range of financial software systems. Good communication skills are essential because you might work as part of a larger team or deal with clients from a range of backgrounds.
