Tax Graduate Programme

BDO gives graduates all the training they need to attain their professional qualifications, along with extensive practical experience that includes on-site client work. The firm provides constant support to make sure graduates are never out of their depth. It all adds up to a colourful world of choice.

You will be a part of our Tax Team. Your journey to becoming a BDO tax adviser will begin in the area of compliance with responsibilities such as providing figures for a company’s statutory accounts, and preparing their corporate tax returns. As you develop, you’ll progress on to more challenging work, such as advising clients on tax opportunities and pitfalls. You will also begin to deal directly with HMRC and get to grips with complex tax advisory projects. 

You may also get the chance to spend time in one of our specialist tax areas, such as:

  • Corporate Mergers & Acquisitions Tax
  • Corporate International Tax
  • Real Estate & Construction Tax
  • Indirect Tax
  • Private Client Services Tax
  • Human Capital Tax

As a tax trainee your Programme is a 3 year structured programme around working and studying. You will study towards an appropriate qualification, usually either the CTA (from the Chartered Institute of Taxation) or the joint ACA/CTA qualification (from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and the Chartered Institute of Taxation). This will be dependent on your Tax Business Stream.

At BDO we offer our graduates a highly competitive starting salary and we’ll pay your tuition and all your professional exam fees, as well as bonuses for passing your exams during your training period. You will also be eligible to choose from a range of fixed and flexible benefits to suit your lifestyle, from buying extra holiday to season ticket loans and discounted gym membership.

The majority of our graduate programmes will start in September 2017 but there are a small number of places available to start in December 2017
