In the face of shifting economic and regulatory conditions in the UK, junior tax professionals need to consider what skills they need to acquire to help grow their careers in the long term.
Regulations are becoming more complex and stringent, with FATCA and BEPS regulations impacting the financial services sector, and HMRC’s risk based approach requiring businesses to provide a clear and concise approach to reporting.
New technologies can help businesses lower the risk of non-compliance, reduce operating costs, improve cash flow, and produce more accurate reporting numbers.
Robert Walters Director, Dan Harris, shares his top fives tips for junior tax professionals looking to stay ahead of the curve in a changing landscape.
More and more of the businesses we work with are expecting candidates to have had exposure to technology. Those that have a deep understanding of the robotics behind such systems, plus strong tax technical knowledge are in a fantastic position.

Wherever you gain the experience, be sure to not fall behind the curve.
