πριν από 4 ώρες

Join our global team for a career filled with opportunities to solve challenges both small and large, local and global, simple and complex.

Wilhelmsen is looking for an Indirect Tax Manager to join our Ships Service division.

Wilhelmsen Ships Service sells maintenance products and service to globally trading vessels in 70+ countries, through 50+ legal entities in all corners of the world.

With sales to more than 26 000 vessels, we reach more than half the world fleet. Indirect tax compliance is especially important to us due to the increasingly strict requirements that needs to be fulfilled to qualify for zero rated sales when selling to internationally trading vessels.

Navigating the global landscape of import duties / import VAT is also very important for us, as the high-quality products we sell to our customers are often sourced in one location and then redistributed to our stock points across the globe.

And while we of course do not expect you to know the ins and outs of every country we serve; we are looking for someone who would not be afraid to familiarize oneself with the rules and regulations of different jurisdictions as issues emerge.

So, your work will be both challenging and appreciated. Appreciated because at WSS we deem the need for compliance within the field of indirect tax not an inconvenience, but rather a truly foundational element of our business model, and integral part of our competitive advantage.
