What will I actually do if I choose Tax?

Working for Ireland’s leading tax practice you’ll help companies and the people who run them to make key decisions around raising finance, structuring investments, office location, reward schemes and much more. Our expertise covers all areas of taxation from preparing annual tax returns and restructuring multimillion euro operations to buying a business and advising celebrities on the tax implications of their worldwide tours. You’ll advise clients who range from budding entrepreneurs to the world’s largest multinationals. And from early on you’ll tackle a broad range of work that includes tax compliance, researching case law research and cross-border advisory projects.

Which part of Tax should I choose?

Over 550 professionals work across five groups:

Domestic and International Outbound: This group advises large Irish plc clients on everything from mergers and acquisitions, expansion overseas and management buy-outs to group reorganisations and much more.

Financial Services: Specialises in the core areas of banking and capital markets, aircraft leasing, asset management and insurance. This often involves working on complex cross-border transactions which will give you both Irish and international tax experience.

Foreign Direct Investment: This group advises overseas companies investing in Ireland on the impact on their business of tax changes and transactions between countries.

Human Resource Services: This group helps some of the world’s leading employers make the most of their people. You’ll work on everything from employee incentives and international pensions to workforce reshaping, executive recruitment, employment law and the tax affairs of international assignees to and from Ireland.

Indirect Tax: An indirect tax, such as a sales tax, customs duty or VAT, is imposed on goods or services rather than on organisations. You could be advising on the correct VAT rate for new products or services, helping clients with Revenue Audits, managing VAT compliance or explaining the VAT and customs implications of cross-border transactions.
