As our new VAT specialist, you will join DC’s tax function, Group Tax, which is centralised at our HQ in Aarhus. The primary role of the team is to act as an internal advisor in daily operations, when onboarding new activities and entering new market areas. As such, we handle all tax matters in DC – both in the Danish parent company as well as in the subsidiaries around the world. Tax matters in DC comprise a wide range of areas within corporation tax, international tax, transfer pricing and indirect tax. Our responsibility is to ensure that DC is always compliant within the tax area. In the team, we have close cooperation with the tax and indirect tax teams in our parent company, Equinor.

You will join a team of three dedicated colleagues in which openness and respect are key values. We are always open to new ideas and ways of doing things in to be the best tax business partner for our colleagues and to ensure a high compliance level for the company. We respect each other’s competencies and qualifications, and the team has a high team spirit, meaning we always support each other to reach common goals.

Your journey as our new VAT specialist
