Job Description:

OVERVIEW Small Batch Standard is the premier financial agency built to serve the craft brewing industry. Our team of consultants, accountants, tax specialists and industry experts are here to help breweries grow, profit, and thrive. We do this in order to build deep, successful relationships with the owners and operators who make this industry great. We're fully remote, with both team members and clients located all across the U.S. We've also made a commitment to running a Calm Company (basecamp.com/books/calm) that supports work-life integration. Here's a short introduction to our firm: sbstandard.com/about THE ROLE We're looking for a full-time, remote Brewery Tax Specialist to join our specialized team. The main objective of this role is to provide overall tax guidance and preparation of individual, corporate, and partnership tax returns for our brewery clients in accordance with the SBS Core Values. OUR VALUES How we work is just as important as the results that we deliver. Everything that we do, day-in and day-out, is guided by our core values and is embodied in our team, our process, and our relationships with clients, partners, and the industry. Our core values are: Antifragile Play The Long Game Embrace Technology Build and Trust The Process Operate With The Client's Best Interest In Mind Far from your typical corporate "values" checklist, we hire, evaluate, and make our most important strategic decisions against these criteria. The right fit for this role will embrace, uphold, and contribute to forwarding these values in the work they do, and the interaction they have with clients and team members. THE PERSON We're looking for an individual who: Has the technical chops AND the relationship management skills. You've got the fundamentals covered. Integrations with QBO? Got it. Payroll accruals? No problem. Inventory reconciliation? In your sleep. Chart of accounts re-organization? Easy-peasy. But in addition to that (and more importantly), the person best fit for this role can translate all of the accounting-speak into clear communication with clients, can manage scope and minimize extra work, and can just simply make working relationships with clients--- work! Enjoys the continuity of a core portfolio of clients and approaches tax season with a level head. This role acts as an extension of our clients' team, and so the relationships, workflow, and chemistry our tax specialists develop with our breweries is essential to maintain and build upon. The individual best fit for this role will enjoy the consistency of working with a regular set of clients week-in and week-out, as well as embrace tax season with the calm, smooth, level-headedness that comes along with the diligent application of preparation and processes.

Unlike working within a traditional firm, in this role you'll be in the driver's seat, managing your workflow and workload in order to meet the standard set of deliverables required for each client. For most individuals in the accounting profession, this shift in working style is dis-orienting and challenging. It requires self-discipline, habits, routines, organization, scheduling, and the ability to communicate effectively and set boundaries.

You'll be responsible for ensuring you're meeting your targets and completing projects. Participate and contribute to the overall success of our team.
