As a Tax and Customs Manager your mission is to master NEOT’s tax and customs setup, processes and guidelines. This is a new position and the responsibilities included have previously been distributed among different teams and professionals. In a nutshell, the objective of this position is to make sure tax and customs matters are taken into account and addressed as well as possible both in the current and future NEOT operations.
Your responsibilities include outlining and managing NEOT’s processes and guidelines related to tax and customs setup. You will be developing new and improving already existing processes and guidelines as well as ensuring their adequate implementation and use within the organisation.
