What does the average day look like?

One the great aspects of Corporate tax is no two days are the same. This is because every client is different and therefore all of our tax advice is bespoke to their facts and circumstances. The average day could involve meeting with clients or being on site with them, researching tax law, preparing models for tax purposes and drafting tax advice. In an agile environment you could be sat next to a Partner one day and someone from a different team the next.

What will I learn in the first year?

The first year is a steep learning curve, involving formal training in different aspects of the tax law and also less formal on the job training.
