Richard Shao gives us an insight into his time in the Corporate Tax team. "Since I have been with GT, I have been to a meeting at a client site, and have had the opportunity to sit in on multiple calls between managers and clients. I have even had a client call me up personally, completely out of the blue, to run through some tax queries, which was unexpected and a little bit scary. Having said that, it’s the unexpected nature of the job that can make it very interesting, and pushes you to always be on the ball."

Transfer pricing involves learning a lot of information about the client’s business and using it to determine what needs to be done and how it needs to be done; learning why my colleagues ask the questions and make the decisions that they do is very interesting."
