A rapid and thorough introduction to corporate tax advisory and compliance.

With one of the largest and most experienced Real Estate teams in the UK, BDO has a portfolio of clients that includes UK and overseas listed companies, owner-managed businesses, property investment funds and partnerships and overseas investors in UK property. We help clients structure their real estate and construction transactions in the most tax-efficient way. That often means liaising with overseas colleagues and specialists in areas such as VAT and transfer pricing.

Property is an area where most clients – from house-builders to banks, pub chains to pension funds – have interests, and where they make frequent transactions. Initially your work will focus on compliance with tax legislation; however, we do not separate compliance and advisory work. So if your client undertakes a transaction, you will be involved. This means the opportunity to build early in-depth experience, with plenty of client contact and hand-on involvement in deals.

Our programme is designed to transform you into a fully qualified accountant or tax professional, and we’ll advise on the best professional qualifications to help you achieve your goals. Both graduates and apprentices have the opportunity to follow an accountancy or tax route – or a joint tax and accountancy programme.

Once qualified, you’ll have plenty of scope to continue building your technical and managerial expertise in Real Estate & Construction Tax. However, your corporate tax experience is also relevant to a wide range of other finance, accounting and business careers and your skills will be in high demand.
