Chief Finance Office

Inmarsat’s Chief Finance Office (CFO) processes millions of transactions a month that enable us to interact efficiently with our suppliers, customers, trading partners and regulators. We make sure that the Company is properly funded and well controlled, that our taxes are paid and that shareholders and banks continue to support our plans. Our commercial teams help ensure that the business takes sound decisions through robust planning, careful pricing, sound contracts, skilled procurement and rigorous evaluation of every major business decision.

Job Description

Primary role purpose:

We are currently presenting an exciting opportunity for a Transfer Pricing Analyst to join our Tax & Treasury team which sits within our Chief Finance Office. This is a new role which will report to the Transfer Pricing Manager.

Transfer pricing is one of the most important areas of tax for any global organisation.  It refers to the way transactions are priced within a group of companies, to ensure that profits arise and are therefore taxed where the group’s real value drivers lie.   To ensure Inmarsat is compliant with international transfer pricing rules, the transfer pricing team needs to work very closely with the business, to understand where different functions are located and how they contribute to the Group’s profitability.  With this detailed knowledge, we can set appropriate transfer pricing policies, work with the business to implement them, monitor the results and produce the required documentation.

This is a great opportunity to learn about an exciting business and to add value in one of its key areas.  As the Group’s Transfer Pricing Analyst, you will develop an in-depth understanding of the Group’s businesses; liaise with key stakeholders across the business to gather the information needed to document the inter-company transactions; use the Group’s transfer pricing model to calculate intercompany recharges on a quarterly basis; review the profitability of the Group in its various locations and critically appraise whether this is in line with expectations; and continually question existing processes and ways of working, identifying opportunities for improvement and working with the Tax team and business to implement change.

We’re keen to find a strong team player who will support their colleagues in reaching the team’s goals while also managing their own workload and development. The ideal candidate will be keen to learn, with a genuine passion for finance, tax, policy design and developing innovative solutions, and inspired to help the Group meet complex global obligations.

We are looking for someone with the right attitude and potential to succeed – whilst fundamental skills are important, we can teach you the tax and business skills the role requires.

We are open to a degree of flexible working but the role must be present in the Group’s London office (Old Street) every Thursday to work with the team.

Key responsibilities:

  • Prepare the Group global transfer pricing documentation in collaboration with the Transfer Pricing Manager and external advisors, ensuring all documents comply with local regulations. Completion of the documentation will require the development of a strong understanding of the Group’s businesses, which will be explained within the documents.
  • Use the transfer pricing model to calculate required intercompany charges on a quarterly basis.
  • Together with the Transfer Pricing Manager, review Group entities’ results to ensure they are in line with expectations.
  • Assist the Transfer Pricing Manager in dealing with transfer pricing related audits and enquiries from tax authorities, including providing supporting workpapers and drafting responses to tax authorities, and working with advisors as needed.
  • Identify potential process improvements and work with others as needed to develop and implement changes.  This will include working on improvements to or a replacement for the current transfer pricing model.
  • Provide general assistance to the Transfer Pricing Manager on transfer pricing related matters. This may involve analysing data, basic financial modelling, looking up information, reviewing documents, writing reports and so on.
  • Assist on any other tasks and projects within the Tax & Treasury team to the extent time allows.
