 Your opportunity

You will be exposed to a wide variety of day-to-day tasks, whilst working directly and autonomously with our clients, including:

  • Tax due diligence – identifying the duty and land tax exposures of a deal and how it may be mitigated, with clear focus on risk assessment and clear communication.
  • Structuring an acquisition or disposition – advising on the duty consequences of individual acquisitions, joint ventures and divestments in order to help design tax-efficient deal structures.
  • Tax modelling – assisting with forecasting ongoing liabilities in business models.
  • Vendor assistance – preparation of vendor side documentation and tax advice on the tax implications of the sale of a business, including the potential duty issues arising in pre-deal reorganization measures and settlement of historic tax risks.
  • Post-deal implementation – identifying duty obligations and efficiently managing lodgements, reviews and objections.
  • Revenue Office liaison – liaising with revenue offices and preparing submissions for rulings or other engagement with the authorities during the transaction lifecycle

In addition, you will build ongoing relationships with a wide range of clients, particularly in the property, energy and natural resources, financial services and funds industries providing highly valued advice and assistance with duty and land tax compliance, planning and disputes resolution.

How are you extraordinary?

  • This role will suit either a Finance/Accounting/Law professional, ideally with significant recent experience in duty in an M&A/ transactional tax environment.
  • A commitment to client service with a proven track record of developing strong relationships with clients.
  • Extensive experience leading and developing high performing teams
  • Strong technical skills and demonstrated ability to problem solve.
