  • Evaluate and maintain interpretation of (international) laws and regulations, including informing the business about relevant changes and risks;
  • Increasing fiscal knowledge / awareness within the organization by giving presentations and training primarily on indirect tax matters;
  • Traveling will be necessary occasionally.

Skills & Experience
The ideal candidate has a completed Tax Law or Tax Economics study and relevant work experience within an international tax advisory practice at a leading tax advisory firm or as an inhouse tax manager. You have an excellent knowledge of international tax law and preferably experience with Transfer Pricing and/or multi-country VAT compliance.
