The Role:

The KPMG Real Estate Tax Group is part of the wider KPMG FS Tax team and focuses specifically on providing tax advisory and compliance services to UK and international property investors and fund managers. We also work alongside our clients and our colleagues in Transaction Services on transactions, providing tax structuring and tax due diligence services. The investors in funds are typically multinational, as are many of the targets. Therefore the projects frequently require us to work with colleagues from our global KPMG tax network.

You will have an opportunity to broaden their knowledge of the real estate industry, common fund structures, and the way different entities in these structures are taxed; developing your experience of corporation tax, income tax, capital gains tax, VAT, stamp duty and overseas tax regimes while developing relationships in a specialist business area.

• Developing client relationships with fund management houses, TS and overseas teams
• Understanding the client's business and helping to identify areas for the provision of tax and other services
• Being involved in business development and proposal activity
• Ensuring all risk procedures are adhered to

The Person:

You will have the following skills:
• Qualified CTA or ACA/CA or equivalent
• Strong corporate tax technical knowledge
• A good knowledge of UK corporate tax and an awareness of other tax and accounting areas. M&A tax and/or international tax experience would be an advantage but is not a requirement
