Impact to our community

We are searching for a Taxation Specialist who will be key in providing technical tax advice and support relating to all taxes including income tax, GST/VAT, FBT and other taxes (as required) for all jurisdictions in which Envato operates. Reporting to the Global Tax Director, you will support both BAU and initiative-based taxation projects across the business. Providing advice to stakeholders across the Group and within our Global Finance team, and the ability to face into customer inquiries about tax obligations and withholding implications, mainly pertaining to the US, will be crucial elements of this role.

You will collaborate with our Finance and Treasury teams in relation to the preparation and lodgement of tax returns across all global jurisdictions, as well as provide detailed analysis of foreign tax applicability to Envato's multiple business lines.

This role will require the ability to manage multiple competing priorities and would suit an experienced person with exposure to either consulting or large, complex organisations with global footprints. Our Taxation team tackles a broad range of international and domestic tax issues from corporate reorganisations & transfer pricing to collaborating with our engineering teams to improve our tax processes and governance. You'll have the chance to grow within a developing tax function in a global technology business.
