Why work at Unicus Tax

Unicus tax is a tax exclusive services firm. This means tax services is not a byproduct/support service of some other service offering. We do tax and only tax! 

In addition, we hardly ever do any tax compliance work. Being a tax consultant at Unicus Tax is about much more than filling out forms all day long or about doing “tax audits” or “tax accrual reviews” day in and day out. Having said that, candidates typically need to know how to do these things.  

Your knowledge of tax law will be stretched across multiple tax disciplines and tax types on a daily basis in challenging factual scenarios. Our typical clients don’t come to us with run-of-the-mil issues or run-of-the-mil transactions nor are they looking for run-of-the-mil professionals.   

If you want to develop into a truly tax specialised professional, to apply your knowledge of tax law, to learn from recognised tax professionals, to build a solid tax career, want exposure to unique and interesting transactions, then Unicus Tax is where you ought to be. 

“There are several aspects which are thrilling about working in tax. Amongst, my personal favourites are, the satisfaction in the “Eureka moment” after long stretches of time spent deciphering the law and, ironically, the fact that today’s big revelation may not apply to tomorrow due to the industry’s ever-evolving nature. The industry, itself, has for passages of time been said to “keep you on your toes”. I argue, only as much as your curiosity and workplace allow and so, I count myself especially fortunate that Unicus Tax has afforded me the latter. No one day working at Unicus Tax looks like the next. With an exciting array of complex subject matters across all industries, all over the world, every single day has afforded me the opportunity to put my technical, not data capturing or repetition-tolerance, skill in practice which is unfortunately not the reality for a lot of our counterparts in practice. We, at Unicus Tax Specialists SA, in the truest and widest sense of the word, specialise in tax – even from junior level.

Unicus Tax has proven, time and time again, to be the best place to hone the delicacy of understanding tax law at the hands of expert seniors, who still seek to continuously learn and have a passion to teach! The adage goes, “only two things are a certainty in life; death and taxes”, working at Unicus Tax has helped me better understand the ‘how’, ‘when’, ‘why’ and ‘according to who’ aspect of the latter and, where unlawful, dispute such supposed certainty with the utmost certainty.”

What do we offer you?

The opportunity to practice tax at a truly specialised level and to learn from recognised tax experts.  If your main goal of finding a job is just do something between the hours of 09:00 and 17:00 (or to pretend to do something at home between 09:00 and 17:00), make friends and just have some jolly old fun all the time then we are afraid to say you unlikely to find happiness here.  Our joy mainly comes from our passion for what we do and the consequential results we achieve for our clients.   

Having said that, we are not entirely “tax zombies” who slave behind legislation, case law and computer screens with no regard for anything else in life.   

We do have fun also. Heck, we play “cricket” in the hallway from time to time, we have social events and we have fairly fiercely contested “ping pong” competitions. But these things quite simply always come second to work.

To sum up, if your main source of joy in the workplace is not the actual work you are doing, we have very little to offer you. If it is, then you will find working with us very rewarding!
