Vodafone launches search for deputy tax director

Vodafone, which is facing a £2bn tax battle, plans to bolster senior tax team

Vodafone has opened the search for a deputy tax director as its £2bn tax
battle over controlled foreign companies looms.

In an advert in the FT, the
£30bn telecoms giant said that the deputy tax director role would attract a six
figure salary in addition to a bonus and benefits.

The position is a new at the company and will require the incumbent to
develop the Vodafone tax team and
formulate tax strategy.

The advert said that the candidate would require ‘a proactive approach to tax
planning, business support, structuring and M&A’ and have to have
‘significant experience of strategic tax issues as they affect complex,
international businesses.

Vodafone’s tax difficulties have been well documented, and the company has
set aside a £2bn provision ahead of its CFC case that is set to come before the
ECJ.
