Working in tax
Tax regulation is not only complex, but it is constantly evolving. Tax accountants help their clients, whether businesses or individuals, to make sure they are meeting their legal obligations.
Responsibilities include tax planning activities, as well as ensuring regulatory compliance and adherence to corporate governance procedures.
On a day-to-day basis this could include completing and submitting tax returns, explaining tax law to high net-worth clients or ensuring that strategies are in place for proposed changes in legislation.
As an accountancy student you might be asked to:
produce tax computations;
research legislation and recent legal cases;
advise clients on their tax requirements;
complete and submit tax returns; and
work closely with HM Revenue & Customs.
