VAT jobs

Jim, Sara and Jo  VAT team

We make the complex seem simple.

We’re the trusted advisors, the researchers, the problem solvers and the translators.

Our VAT accountants help our clients understand VAT in a way that they can apply in a practical and effective way to their business or organisation.

We are one of biggest and we would say best VAT, Customs and Indirect tax teams in the country but we operate on a very personal level. We have fun and do work that makes us all proud.

We’re a 20 strong team located across all eight offices, but primarily based in Exeter, Truro and Poole.

We operate according to a matrix approach:

  1. Sector and specialist teams – operating across all offices
  2. Three regional teams – for line management and local issues
  3. You as the expert – you’ll be the specialist for a given region and sector

Our sectors are:

  •  Agriculture and landed estates
  • Charity and not-for-profit
  • Customs and international
  • Food and drink
  • Health, welfare and medical
  • Land and property
  • Leisure and tourism
  • Marine

Our VAT jobs include a mix of advisory and compliance work including VAT registration, VAT returns and reviews, planning, disputes and investigation, business restructuring and insolvency as well as due diligence and transactional work for Corporate Finance deals.

Our work supports clients of all sizes, from sole proprietors, to owner managed businesses, national and international organisations and high net worth individuals (including a number of famous people we are very discreet about…).

Although the team is distributed across eight offices, our VAT jobs offer hybrid working enables us to split our time between gathering as a team and working at home. We have a weekly virtual meeting with everyone, as well as regular online meets for our sector and specialist teams. Our local and regional teams usually get together once a week in the office and we have at least two full team away days every year. These bring everyone together from for a mix of operational sessions and fun activities such as archery, knife throwing and the Segway Olympics.

Your progression is based on your performance and your personal ambition. Our VAT jobs offer opportunities for promotion and/or moving to work in a particular area. We have a framework that measures behaviours and tasks to help you drive your career in the direction you want it to go.

In our team the management ask and they listen, we want everyone to have a voice. We want you to feel like you belong, and to enjoy your work. We encourage you to be yourself, share your ideas and tell us how we can help you to do your very best work. We do our best for you so that you can do your best for our clients.

We’ve had team members join us from HMRC, straight from school or university, and other areas of accountancy, tax and industry. Everyone from engineers to travel guides and teachers. When you apply for our VAT jobs, we’re looking for passion, enthusiasm and someone who wants to be part of a team. We’re a fun and supportive group so you’ll need to be a good team player.

We have the biggest, and we would say best, VAT, Customs and Indirect tax team in the country, but we still operate on a very personal level. You’ll learn and be involved in an extensive range of technical subjects and work across different trade and business sectors. There is no glass ceiling here and we’ll encourage you to learn and progress as far as your own ability will take you.
We have regular team away days, usually a mix of operational and technical updates and fun stuff, for example we recently did included axe throwing, archery and Segway at Escot House. There are also smaller regional get togethers for meals out and other outings. We do online socials too, sending out gifts and food and drink to bring everyone together at virtual gatherings – these online socials started during lockdown but were so popular that we’ve continued with them.
