Bring your depth of knowledge and help businesses scale new heights

Tax has now become a more strategic function for businesses and that means the role of the tax professional has never been more important – or more rewarding – especially in today’s disruptive environment.

EY people equip clients to make better business decisions by bringing insights to the forefront, helping them build resilience for the future. This involves not only helping clients understand the tax policies and tax laws of governments around the world but also leveraging technology to help clients transform their tax functions and operations to meet regulatory obligations, improve workforce management, reduce risk and drive sustainable value.

An exceptional career in Tax. It's yours to build.

At EY, your career in Tax is truly yours to build. We provide the scale, the technology, the teams, the challenges, the learning and the relationships for you to personalize and evolve your career. 

Become the transformative leader the world needs.  You can harness technology and scale to continuously innovate and learn. What’s more, EY Tax offers leadership in all tax disciplines, including tax planning, tax accounting, tax compliance, tax policy and controversy, tax function operations, law, and people and workforce.

Personalize your career like you do your playlists. The flexible EY approach to career development means you can choose to specialize and build your career in any industry or move between industries and work across tax teams.

Build the skills and experiences that can take you anywhere. You could work on an acquisition of one company by another; apply technology to improve processes and save time on tax return preparation; develop new services to target tax opportunities; transform the human resource organization; or help a company restructure its operations to make the most of tax reforms. Whatever you do in tax, you’ll help add value, drive decision-making and reduce risk.

    Data analytics will change the role of tax from being a historian, as it often is today, to a strategic business partner.
