Statutory and Tax Accountant temp vacancy amsterdamFor our client, an international operating company EMEA headquartered in Amsterdam, we are looking for a Statutory and Tax Accountant for a period of one year.

Our client is active in the retail business and a highly sought after employer as a result of its products and culture.

Statutory and Tax Accountant

Within the statutory and tax accounting team you operate and work with a high degree of independence. Although the position is for one year, possibilities may arise for continuation on a more permanent basis (but no promises).

As a statutory-tax accountant you support the periodic (monthly/quarterly/yearly) reportings and filings. Four European countries will be your responsibility. You process and prepare various tax, financial statements and other declarations.

Special projects

Next to these tasks, you support in a more broad sense the department by implementing improvements with regard to the complex tax structure. Also you will be doing several tasks for ‘smooth operations’ by helping out the internal and external auditors where it comes to preparing and reviewing data.

Last but not least: you will also be given some special projects for which you have to liaise with auditors.

You report to and will be working under guidance of the Statutory and Tax Manager.


In order to be successful in this very challenging position you:

Formal requirements

  • Have at least a degree in finance, accounting and/or tax;
  • With regard to experience: at least 5 years is required in a similar position, including involvement with statutory audits (“as they have always questions which must be answered to satisfy their hunger”);
  • Familiair with working in local and international teams and an ERP system (think of JD Edwards, Oracle, SAP);
  • Understanding of Dutch GAAP and US GAAP.

Bonus requirements

  • Knowledge of IFRS;
  • Belgium GAAP;
  • Experience in Hyperion/HFM for consolidated reporting;
  • Dutch language is an extra plus!

Further: fluent in written and spoken English. Strong skills with Excel, able to meet deadlines, flexibility, not stressed when pressure rises. Till at least the end of March you will be working from your home. So you need to be prepared for that! Sufficient space for consultation with colleagues and a friendly chatter at the virtual coffee machine.

What we offer

A challenging job in an environment with highly skilled professionals who help out. ‘We are in this together’. No nonsense, promises need to be kept.
