Indirect Tax Consultant

Please note: This is only an EXAMPLE of a position we frequently post.

Our consultants would never describe themselves as ‘typical Indirect Tax consultants’. It simply doesn’t cover their skills and responsibilities. What sets Tytho apart is their experience with ERP systems such as SAP, which they often gained by chance as VAT experts in project teams.

About the role

As a Tytho consultant, you use this combination of Tax and IT expertise in one or more international project teams. Through collaboration you create an automated VAT determination solution for multinational clients with complex supply chains.

In this role you work together with several disciplines within a company, such as Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Customer Services or Sales. You need to understand what is actually happening in the business and define the VAT impact. As an Indirect Tax Consultant you are the link between the business, the Indirect Tax Managers and the people who are actually submitting the VAT returns. This means that you translate the business requirements into what needs to be done from a systems perspective in order to be VAT-compliant.

Our clients’ goal is to be hands-off in control. Your job is to make that happen!

Company profile

At Tytho, we strive to challenge and stimulate each other, as well as encouraging people to take on new tasks.

We welcome input on topics for these sessions, and work on connecting Consultants to Subject Matter Experts within our network.

Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to work within Tytho’s SAP environment, gaining practical experience and testing your own solutions. As a team member on our global projects, you will be exposed to a great variety of (organizational) cultures, disciplines and professionals. Tytho celebrates its belief in a good work/life balance. We believe in working hard, until it’s time to play.

We actively seek out opportunities to gather as a team, and always welcome a visit to our office in Rotterdam!
