Helping you find a career in the Taxation industry

Tax experts are required for companies to make sure that they are operating within the law when it comes to finance and are not underpaying or overpaying tax. They play a crucial role in helping businesses run efficiently, which in turn allows them to develop and grow.

The highest level of tax qualification in the UK is the Chartered Tax Advisor (CTA) qualification. With this, you will learn about complex tax laws, financial regulations and the mathematical formulas required to work out taxes. For those who are interested in a combination of the analytical and numerical, this role will suit you perfectly.

The typical working day for those in taxation will be 9-5, but overtime may be required towards the end of the financial year (April) or when tax returns are due.

Those that work in-house will be dedicated to the tax operations of a single company, whereas those who work in an accountancy or tax firm will have multiple clients whom they have to advise.

Working in tax can also open up numerous opportunities to work abroad, particularly if you specialise in corporate tax.


Skills & interests required for a career in Taxation
Although tax can require some creative problem solving skills, it is best suited to those who are logical and analytical. The majority of your day will be spent working with numbers and doing calculations.

Although an aptitude for numbers is essential, you will also require strong communication skills to be able to explain to clients and other business stakeholders the financial situation of the company and also offer advice.

Working for an accountancy or tax firm, you’ll have to be highly organised and comfortable with balancing multiple clients at once. Even for in-house work, you will need to be organised to ensure that all payments are accurate and made on time.

Mistakes in this department can be very expensive, so it is important that you are responsible and able to pay attention to detail. However, you will have support of other senior members of staff in the early stages of your training so don’t panic too much!

Taxation apprenticeships & other career progress routes for school leavers
Usually you will start out as a tax assistant and you could work towards your Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT) qualification, which will typically take around two years.

After this you will be a tax technician and to progress further you will need to take additional qualifications, either through a degree or an apprenticeship.

The next step to progress your career in tax would be to work towards becoming a Chartered Tax Advisor (CTA). This involves exams, assessments and three years of relevant professional experience.

With experience in tax, you will also get a firm grasp on how business works and an understanding of the various legal frameworks that are applicable to the finances of a business. This means that you could move into tax consultancy and provide tax advice to companies or individuals on a contractual basis.

There is also the opportunity to work for yourself by setting up your own tax firm.
Tips for getting into the field
Apply to structured apprenticeship programs that will supply you with the training and knowledge to start a career within this industry. Some large firms that offer school-leaver programs include Deloitte, KPMG, Grant Thornton and PwC.
What do Taxation professionals get paid?
As a tax assistant, before you are ATT qualified, you can expect to earn between £20,000-£25,000 depending on the firm. After you have passed your examinations, you will likely get a pay rise of up to £10,000.

Once you are chartered, your salary will be between £30,000-£50,000.

A manager with 6-8 years’ experience can earn roughly between £50,000-£60,000. A director can earn anything between £90,000-£140,000, according to the Chartered Institute of Taxation.
What qualifications do I need for a career in Taxation?
Working in tax doesn’t require a degree, although some tax apprenticeship programs may require a strong maths A-level. If they don’t, it’s likely that you will have to do a numerical test in the application process.

As a trainee or apprentice you would have to gain two years of experience in tax and then you would be able to complete the ATT exam to become a qualified tax technician.
After this you can begin to work towards the CTA that will give you chartered status, which will require further exams and three years of relevant professional experience.

Law and tax regulations can change frequently, so your role will require you to remain up to date with any legislation alternations that will affect how business finances operate.
