Our tax team

Our tax team believe that everyone has a responsibility to conduct their affairs ethically. As a result, we assist clients to make sure they pay the appropriate amount of tax. We provide legitimate, robust tax advice that holds up to scrutiny from tax authorities. We pride ourselves on our ability to ensure that our clients remain compliant with current legislation.

All of this will relate to a diverse portfolio of UK and international individual and trust clients.  You will be working alongside our Tax Seniors and Tax Managers who will assist in training you to become a key part of Dixon Wilson’s highly-regarded and technically adept tax team.

Your day to day responsibilities will develop your technical, professional and personal skills from day one.  This will include (amongst other things) ensuring client files are kept up to date, reviewing client documents to assist the Tax Managers in determining the correct tax treatment of income/gains, preparing estimates of transactional tax liabilities, drafting clients’ Self-Assessment tax returns, preparing engagement letters and client acceptance documentation, and liaising with HMRC about any matters related to your portfolio of clients.
