Day to Day
I will spend a substantial amount of time training and studying for exams - In order to qualify I will need sit the ICAEW ACA or similar accounting qualification and am likely to complete the tax module early on.
The work I will be carrying out is likely to be:
checking and documenting tax returns;
running tax models and scenarios; and
general admin work, such as proof reading and writing reports and letters.
Most of this work is office based and I understand that tax is deadline driven so overtime will be necessary
