We are looking for a Manager to join the Midlands Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) tax team. You will be called upon to play a key role in delivering quality tax advice on a wide variety of M&A transactions.

The team works on many of largest regional transactions supporting our wider deals team but also sources work from many national and international clients ranging from Private Equity Houses to Public Sector clients.

The team has a truly global reach in terms of facilitating transactions across different territories. The collaboration between PwC teams locally and overseas, calls upon the extensive M&A network to tailor for each individual deal or transaction to deliver a one packaged solution to our clients. The dynamic deal-based nature of a lot of the work in M&A will present the opportunity to work with leading PE houses, investment banks and law firms in complex and often high-profile deals.

  • Performing Tax Due Diligence reviews which involve looking at existing and potential tax issues, tax compliance and tax risks for clients wishing to sell/acquire businesses.

  • Tax Modelling, to simulate models of future tax liabilities of companies to help our clients make informed economic decisions and shape their business strategy.
  • Pre and post deal services, including assisting clients with pre-acquisition re-structuring and implementing new tax planning ideas.
