Tax Leader At IBM

Date Posted: 14/Sep/2013
Deadline: 30/Sep/2013

As Tax leader for Nigeria/Ghana and Sierra Leone you will be responsible for all tax aspects of IBM’s operations in those countries. This includes the regulatory requirements as well as supporting our business activities (including sales and distribution, services delivery and international shared services centers).

You will own all the Corporate Income Tax, Withholding Tax and VAT / GST compliance matters, including having responsibility for the relationships with external service providers and controlling the engagement to manage the submission of tax returns and making of tax payments. You will coordinate tax audits and the relationship with the tax authorities. You will liaise closely with finance and accounting staff both locally and in IBM Centers of Excellence. Furthermore, you will pro-actively identify weaknesses in current processes and identify solutions, to ensure that tax processes are in place and deliver the correct output.

The management of our various business units will seek your expert advice on tax questions in both a domestic and a cross border context. In the area of tax planning you will be part of the IBM Global tax team, supporting major international M&A transactions and other strategic initiatives.

Ideally you have proved your leadership as a leader in one of the “Big 4” or as in-house tax manager in a MNC (ideally 4-7 years experience). Having a commercial outlook, strong business acumen and an awareness of risk would be to your advantage. Excellent communication skills and the ability to work under pressure will nicely round off your profile.

We offer exciting career options, interesting and diverse professional challenges, the opportunity to be part of a highly talented global team and of course a competitive compensation package.

If you would like to see your future in a dynamic, international environment, then we look forward to receiving your complete application.
