Why consider tax?

By acquiring a detailed knowledge and thorough understanding of a client's business, we can plan tax strategies that may save a company significant tax liabilities.

Tax is a major factor in virtually every business decision. Companies turn to tax experts in the early stages of major business developments, including the implications of raising finance, structuring new business operations, and buying and selling companies. With astute independent advice, large companies can achieve major savings, making tax advisory one of the sharpest cutting edges in the development of our business.

How might your career develop?

We place great emphasis on your career development. We make continuous efforts to ensure that you take responsibility as soon as you are ready and that your progression will be as swift as your abilities allow.

As your experience grows, you will become more involved in research projects for new and existing clients, and your work will shift in focus from compliance to strategic tax planning and other aspects of advisory.

In view of the continuing development of local business and related fiscal and regulatory environment, we feel that there will be an increasing need for the expert, commercially-orientated, tax advice that PwC provides. We are therefore confident that career prospects will continue to be open to those who can demonstrate the technical and personal skills required.

Your career challenge

The firm's philosophy is to encourage tax specialists to progress rapidly by assuming responsibility for assignments as early as possible. Therefore, the pace of your career depends solely on you.

By displaying an aptitude for tax advisory, and with determination and commitment, you may soon take on more challenging assignments. To help monitor your career progress, your Manager and Partner will discuss your performance and potential with you every six months. Personal goals will be set for the following six months. Underlying these assessments is the recognition that the potential of tax specialists must be rapidly developed and talents and achievements justly rewarded.

Work experience

You will work together with more experienced members of staff who, as coaches and mentors, will ensure that you acquire a full range of skills and experience. In the early years, your practical experience will focus on clients' annual computations of liability to tax. This is know as compliance work. Compliance work provides the thorough grounding in tax legislation which you will need before progressing to tax advisory. It also provides the opportunity to meet regularly with clients and to develop relationships with them.

Compliance advice includes:

  • Preparing or reviewing clients' tax returns or computations, including liaison with audit colleagues and the client to research treatment of different items of income and expenditure
  • Submission of the computation on behalf of the client to the Inland Revenue Department
  • Negotiating the final tax liability where necessary
  • Liaising with the client to ensure final settlement of the tax liability

Assisting clients to minimise their tax liabilities by appropriate tax planning

All this must be accomplished within the established deadlines of the compliance cycle.
