Meet Liam Clarke, Tax & Legal Graduate in Western Sydney

 

So Liam, tell us about your role and what it involves?

I’m a graduate in the Corporate International tax team at Deloitte where I assist with a range of tax compliance and consulting services for our multinational clients. This means I help with preparing income tax returns as well as tax advisory such as tax planning, restructures, M&A tax, and international tax advice.

Why did you want to join Deloitte?

Deloitte offers a variety of learning and development opportunities both internally and externally- offering great career growth opportunities due to the large network of professionals in Australia and overseas.

Working here gives you exposure to clients in diverse industries as well as being able to provide a wide range of services to these unique clients. 

Tell us about some projects you're getting involved in.

I've recently started working with clients on restructuring their businesses to help reach their organisational goals. Our work will help simplify their tax compliance obligations while also reducing the risks involved in the operation of their business. This work, albeit complex, is extremely interesting and is tailored to our clients to ensure they are provided with high-quality service. 

So, how much of your work is all spreadsheets and numbers?

While the compliance side of things often tends to involve a lot of spreadsheets, the advisory engagements provide a more hands-on approach, where research and application are more important to delivering the client’s goals. These are the projects I look forward to getting involved in.

When thinking about your future career here, what are you most looking forward to?

I’m looking forward to getting involved with clients in a much more personal manner so that I can help identify and rectify tax issues in their business. I’m excited to get involved in more advisory work over the coming years with Deloitte.
