Financial & Tax Accountant, LATAM

Adyen is looking for a Tax Accountant to grow the Group Finance team in Amsterdam, focused primarily on maintaining and analyzing the general ledgers that cover the accounting of taxes as well as ongoing tax and regulatory compliance requirements in the LATAM region (Brazil / Mexico). This process starts with the accurate booking of supplier invoices and ends with reconciliations and tax compliance and reporting. 

The role is a unique opportunity to broaden your horizon and to collaborate with both internal and external stakeholders, supporting the continued growth of the company in a scalable, controlled and compliant way. Being part of the centralized Finance team means you’ll be working in the (financial & tax) engine room of a registered and listed financial institution.

  • Prepare and submit tax filings and other regulatory filings for LATAM entities (Brazil), including working with the accounting data;

  • Perform general accounting functions including preparation of journal entries and balance sheet (including tax-related) reconciliations;
  • Assist the tax team in tax audits;
  • Respond to tax inquiries and timely assist business partners with tax issues.
  • Assist the financial controlling team in determining the correct tax positions in the financial statements (both on a statutory and consolidated level) and prepare the necessary documentation to substantiate this;
  • You'll be responsible for further driving automation to streamline core functions and improve accuracy, assisting in process improvement and systems enhancement to drive initiatives that help scale the organization.

Who you are

  • Fluent in English and Portuguese is mandatory;
  • Previous experience with Brazilian federal taxes is mandatory;
  • Bachelor’s degree in Accounting or Finance or Taxation (Commerce);
  • You have experience in financial control/accounting within Brazil; experience outside of Brazil/LATAM is a plus;
  • You are detail-oriented, with an analytical mindset; 
  • You are automation focussed;
  • Ability to work on multiple projects simultaneously with ability to work independently and prioritize;
  • Able to think 2 steps ahead. We are looking for someone that can question the status quo, think critically and creatively to implement solutions to scale during Adyen’s rapid growth.
