FiscalReps, the leading independent tax compliance consultancy, is welcoming seven Masters of Business Administration students on to its 2012 internship programme.

The company, which helps insurance businesses to comply with insurance premium tax (IPT), VAT and parafiscal taxes internationally, has invited postgraduate students from Coventry University to begin their nine-week internships on Monday 15 October.

The interns all come with strong financial services work experience and are in the final stages of the MBA (Global Financial Services) at the university’s London, UK campus.

The students are each benefiting from the services of a FiscalReps mentor, to assist them in their chosen field of research.

Aisling Stalley, Intern Coordinator and Human Resources Manager at FiscalReps, notes that the organisation decided to establish an internship programme in order to obtain access to a talented and ambitious workforce.

Stalley says: “The seven students all bring new skills and a flexible resource into our company.

They also provide an additional resource to tackle projects. However, it is also our goal to provide graduates with the vital skills and experiences they need to support their future employment.”

Coventry University MBA student Venkatesh Kovvuri already has almost three years of experience in the Global Markets department of an affiliate of the Bank of New York Mellon. He chose FiscalReps for his postgraduate internship thanks to the organisation’s tremendous growth since 2003 in providing outstanding IPT services to its 250 clients, as well as its potential for future expansion.

Kovvuri says: “Working with such an organisation as part of our graduate programme is a life-time experience for business students like me.”

He says: “The FiscalReps internship is helping me to understand the business environment outside the classroom setting – as well as the complexities that are involved in day-to-day operations. It also allows us to interact with experts who are developing products for the insurance industry, and to obtain domain knowledge about the industry at first hand.”
