Our story:

Your challenge: 

Our Finance & Organisation team empowers Taxfix to manage our growth. We want you to play a vital role in building a scalable, world-class administrative organisation at Taxfix.

Your responsibilities:

  • You’ll be completing all day-to-day accounting operations with a high degree of autonomy- constantly looking for opportunities to standardise, document and automate processes. 
  • A big part of the role will be performing month end closing tasks; Accruals, Fixed Assets, Pre-payments, Bank Reconciliation, Revenues, Payroll, other Expenses, VAT etc as well as improving month end closing procedures with new initiatives/ automation. 
  • You’ll also play a key role in preparing supporting documentation for annual close and support during audit; handling auditor requests independently. 
  • You’ll set an example on how to follow Internal Controls for accounting processes; continually looking for ways to improve them whenever necessary/ applicable. 
  • Financial Reporting will come under your remit, too- and you’ll feel comfortable completing these. You’ll create reports with a strong grasp of department, class and account structure, setting the basis for meaningful analysis. 
  • Finally, you’ll play a key role in the growth and development of the accounting and finance function at Taxfix- and we’re looking forward to learning from you.

Your profile:

  • A minimum of 2 years of work experience in an audit firm, tax advisory or as an in-house accountant; touchpoints with startups is a bonus.
  • You have successfully completed your studies with a focus in finance & accounting or have vocational training as Bilanzbuchhalter.
  • You are well-versed in NetSuite (or other similar ERP).
  • HGB knowledge; comfortable working in a HGB environment. 
  • Exposure to German Tax Law, ideally for companies. 
  • If you also have exposure or knowledge of IFRS exposure, that would be super, but it is not an essential! 
  • Demonstrable experience of meeting role requirements independently, with meticulous attention to detail and to tight deadlines; equally comfortable working both autonomously and as part of a team- and managing your own time. 
  • You love a challenge, have excellent problem-solving capabilities but also enjoy getting the last detail right.
