EY Business Apprenticeship – Tax
Tax is a vital service line at EY. Our teams work with every type of client – from global companies and individuals, to charities and NGOs.
In the UK and Ireland, out Tax teams work in a dynamic and fast-paced environment to manage every aspect of our clients’ tax affairs. Our clients include some of the world’s largest companies who we work with on issues like the tax impact of multi-billion-pound takeover deals, but also disruptor start-ups who we might advise on government incentives to encourage research and development. Increasingly, we find ourselves working with government on how to use tax as a lever to drive behaviour in society.
Our Financial Services Tax teams also play a pivotal role in supporting our clients’ business agenda by helping them navigate the complex and swiftly changing demands of national and international tax legislation. They look to us to help create value, save money, and achieve sustainable outcomes. Graduates joining them may contribute to global compliance projects with EY offices in multiple countries, or tax advisory services as clients require assistance negotiating complex and high-profile transactions and tax planning projects. Or they might work with indirect tax on VAT structuring, analysis and litigation. Above all, they’ll be helping clients make the right decisions, contributing to the better working world that everyone wants to see.
