  • Ongoing work relating to National Minimum/Living Wage regulations and assisting clients to manage risks and/or deal with HMRC enquiries.

  • Gender pay gap reporting.

  • Ensuring the clients are aware of and understand the impact and what is required in respect of new legislation when it arises (this is currently off-payroll workers in the public sector, salary sacrifice).

  • Providing advice on the tax/NIC treatment of non-cash remuneration.

  • Undertaking large projects where HMRC requirements have to be met.

  • Developing expenses & benefits policies and procedures on behalf of clients.

  • Due diligence work in order to identify any material exposure to unpaid tax/NIC which may affect the proposed transaction eg acquisitions or mergers.

  • Design and implementation of a range of salary sacrifice arrangements.

  • Consulting with clients on compliance with CIS

About the role

  • Build client relationships, identifying opportunities to help clients resolve their challenges and support the sales engagement process

  • Work with our clients and targets to take advantage of the market opportunity that increased level of HMRC scrutiny around employment taxes and NMW represents, along with ensuring speed to market for topical issues such as new legislation, gender pay gap reporting etc

  • Work with senior members of the team to develop and market new propositions to ensure the pipeline of projects remains healthy

  • Develop strong links with the corporate tax teams and promote cross team working within Tax North


Requirements

  • Have a good knowledge of employment based tax legislation

  • Experience of developing junior members of staff

  • Strong analytical skills and organisational abilities

  • Ability to understand client issues and translate these into a PwC engagement (including budgeting and risk & quality management)

  • Ability to understand the market (including current and future trends) and support the development of new offering in response to changes in demand / legislation

  • Track record in demonstrating a proactive approach to problem solving and delivering client solutions whilst demonstrating integrity and courage to challenge the status quo.

  • Work with the wider team in the delivery of client assignments

  • Be seeking to maintain or enhance their knowledge of employment taxes and broader governance issues

  • Proficient networker, relationship builder and team player
