Based in Group Accounting, this newly established role reports to the Director of Group Accounting, Tax & Treasury. Group Tax has previously been managed by an external party and the Director himself, and there is now a wish to build knowledge and expertise internally. The role is situated at HQ in Broendby.

  • • Corporate taxation of the Danish entities within the Milestone Group incl. verification of corporate income taxes / reporting for remaining group entities.
  • • Ensure Milestone’s tax position is correctly reflected in internal and external reporting, and supplementary tax reporting to Milestone’s owner, Canon.

Your professional skills and experience include a Master´s degree in Finance, Auditing or an MBA, combined with experience from having worked with tax-related work incl. an understanding of deferred tax when it travels through reporting. You have a minimum of 5-7 years’ work experience from an international company or audit firm, where you are most likely at Manager level.

You of course need to be skilled in English and Excel, PP and IT-tools in general.
