Real Estate Tax Advisory, Senior Consultant | Corporate Finance

About Tax Advisory:

We provide business taxes advisory services to FTSE 100, international funds and major corporations across a broad suite of tax services and technical specialists. We are an independent expert led tax practice with definitive expertise across many areas of tax and a commercial approach to advising our clients. Our senior management team members are leaders in their field, qualified in accounting, tax, law and surveying and the team also includes valuations and technology experts and economists.

About the Role:

This role represents an exciting opportunity to join a growing team focussing on real estate transactions and advisory work. Typical projects include tax and financial due diligence, advising on transaction documentation (including SPAs) tax structuring for acquisitions, ongoing advisory projects, disposals and the formation of funds and joint ventures. The team predominantly advises on UK projects, but also manages an increasing number of European transactions.

You will gain significant hands-on commercial exposure in this role, working on transactions and client business plans, working closely with the client deal and finance teams, and seeing projects from start to finish, as well as ongoing tax advisory work throughout the life cycle of an investment.

The FTI real estate team provides a holistic client offering, and frequently acts as an extension of the client transaction team. As such there will also be opportunities to work closely with clients, and gain an understanding of their business plan, commercial goals, and decision-making process. As our team is senior led, there is also the opportunity of working directly with senior members of the team, to gain wide-ranging skills and experience and develop your career in a progressive and supportive team.
