Local Tax Team Lead


Location: Unilever Poland Services, Katowice

There are many taxes and fees per country, which we call local indirect taxes. Taxes are paid for packaging materials put on the market, for products with specific ingredients (e.g. salt, sugar), and products that are considered luxurious (e.g. ice cream, chocolate) or bad for the environment (e.g. phosphates, batteries). The local tax team provides services to the supply chain company calculating these local taxes for many European countries.
