I am working with three clients who have increased demand in their US Tax teams in London. In brief, these roles are chiefly as follows:
1. US Corporate Tax Compliance
2. US Tax Advisory/M&A Tax
3. Operational Taxes/FATCA/CRS
4. US/UK Private Client Compliance and Advisory
5. US/UK Global Mobility
You do not need UK tax experience to apply, i.e. you may be coming straight from the US to London, however if that is the case you need to demonstrate that the work you have been engaging in has an INTERNATIONAL element, so that you can comfortably deal with Inbound or Outbound queries, rather than pure US domestic situations.
An exposure to foreign tax filings such as 5471 OR 8865 would be helpful. Full training support will be provided for the requisite UK Tax qualification (ATT) and any further studies (CTA, ADIT) you would like to undertake.
