Tax Executive (Claims & Incentives)

We have an exciting and unique opportunity for a Tax Executive to join our Corporate Tax team. 

The tax team at MHA Tait Walker has more than 40 staff across a range of tax specialisms and our Reliefs and Incentives team are a key element within the Corporate Tax team.

The successful candidate will assist our specialist incentives and reliefs teams to help clients access tax benefits and funding. Their primary role will be to assist with the preparation of Capital Allowance reports, Research & Development claims and claims for other specialist areas of corporate tax such as the Creative Sector.

This role will provide the successful applicant with training and skills significantly in excess of those required for either CAs and R&D claims alone and so will provide an opportunity for a broad range of career progression paths. 

The types of clients you might be working with would include companies involved in:

  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Manufacturing
  • Engineering
  • Software Development
  • Property Development
  • Automotive Industry
  • Food and Drink
  • Farming
  • Charities

The majority of this work requires the production of claims in a report format.  Interviewing, researching skills and report writing skills are therefore integral to this role. You will be able to interact with a range of clients and attend site visits and meetings.

Experience in a connected role, such as Corporate Tax, Accountancy or Surveying is preferable. However, the opportunity to study for professional qualifications will also be available. This role may therefore suit part qualified, or newly qualified, applicants.  

The candidate will also receive relevant tax training where required and will be trained to assist with the preparation of corporate tax computations and other compliance work.

Key attributes we are looking for:

  • Enthusiastic and highly analytical
  • Motivated, ambitious and a team player
  • Excellent IT Skills (in particular, Office 365, Excel, Powerpoint and Word and ideally Corporate Tax Compliance software such as Alphatax or Digita/Onesource)
  • Excellent interpersonal skills
  • The candidate must be able to travel to clients in and around the North East
  • Excellent written communication with qualifications demonstrating this
  • Be able to manage multiple tasks and work well under pressure.


In return we offer a range of flexible benefits, competitive salary, training and development and a varied role that will give you great experience. To find out more or submit your CV, please contact
