Tax affects everyone - how much you earn, spend and invest depends on various aspects of the tax system. Tax is part of government, business and indeed everyday life. That's why intelligent and experienced tax professionals are always highly sought after.
Tax professionals enjoy a fulfilled career, filled with complex, technically challenging work, a chance to get inside the client's business and affect and implement significant business decisions, opportunities to build vast networks and opportunities to develop significant management and leadership skills.
Australia's tax system is one of the most complex in the world. Your clients will rely on your expertise and advice in managing their tax obligations and associated risks.
As a tax practitioner you may one day lead your own team or even your own firm in engaging with Australia's premier businesses to develop creative solutions for your client's problems.
Rewarding in every way a career should be:
Professionally rewarding: develop a large range of technical, business and problem solving skills that you will use throughout your developing career. Tax is an exciting blend of legal and/or accounting analysis and business acumen. Businesses rely extensively on and highly respect their tax advisors. Tax practitioners also typically enjoy real job security.
Financially rewarding: Tax professionals possess vastly specialised knowledge which is usually further developed through significant technical training and further study. This knowledge coupled with business skills ensures that tax professionals are financially rewarded for the value they bring to the table.
Personally rewarding: Being part of the tax profession requires you to change and adapt to constantly changing tax laws. Each change poses a chance to learn and grow, and a chance to expand your practice. You will constantly engage with new and challenging problems and develop crucial business skills, making for a rewarding work life.
