Job Description
Private Client Senior Manager/Manager

At KPMG, our values define who we are and the way we do business. As a leading professional services firm, we know that our strength and capability come from our people – their different perspectives, experiences and backgrounds. From our inclusive leadership strategy to our diversity and inclusion targets – we’re making bold changes to who we are and what we do. Be part of it.

As the tax system becomes ever more complex, it is important to have advisers who can help provide comprehensive and commercial advice on a broad range of issues tailored to our client’s needs. Our Private Client team is expanding services and teams in key areas including:

- Family Office compliance and advisory services
- International advisory services
- Mergers and acquisitions tax services

Family Office
KPMG’s Family Office team understand that every family is different. We provide bespoke advice to our client’s to help them establish and operate their family office and to support the aspirations of the family and ambitions for their business.

International advisory services
The ever increasing mobility of people, their capital, and their businesses means that many people require advice which is multi-jurisdictional. KPMG’s International Private Client network is specifically designed to service such clients. Our residence and “non-dom” specialists provide assistance to those who are coming to, living in and leaving the UK.

Mergers and acquisitions
Our transactions team helps clients looking to start, grow and sell their businesses. The team provides advice on income tax and a range of capital taxes, working closely with our advisory teams to provide commercial and bespoke support to our client’s at each step of the transaction.

Professional Practice Solutions
Professional practice firms are responding to ever changing market and client needs combined with increasing regulation. Many firms are examining how their businesses are organised. Our professional practice team supports firms with restructuring, mergers and numerous projects to help deliver growth.

In everything we do, we aim to understand our clients’ needs and aspirations, applying our whole firm’s experience and skills to provide advice that helps them manage their personal tax obligations and relationship with HMRC, while working to minimise risk.
