New Aussie rules spark demand for British tax accountants

British accountants, especially those with expertise in tax, are in strong demand Down Under due to a shake-up in Australian tax law which has made it more similar to the British system.

According to recruitment consultancy ASA International, the tax changes have brought a need for skilled accountants, with British candidates being the ideal applicants.

ASA’s Abigail Stevens said:’Australia has adopted a new regime known as Goods and Services Tax, which is very similar to UK VAT regulations.

‘The problem they have, however, is that few accountants in Australia are familiar with the system, and this has led to a golden opportunity for Brits.’

The consultancy said that as visas are now a lot harder to come by, this situation gives accountants the ideal opportunity to visit Australia and gainexperience which will stand them in good stead if and when they return to Britain.
