Professional experience

Karen joined the firm in January 2000. She has experience in providing taxation and accounting services to small and medium-sized businesses and professionals.

Karen’s sharp eye for detail and close relationships with clients are key factors in her exceptional level of service. She works with clients throughout the life cycle of their business by advising them during its establishment and operation, then, if necessary, working on exit strategies and winding up. 

Karen has advised clients across many areas and is always seeking the most tax-effective approach, depending on individual circumstances. She undertakes taxation planning, followed by execution and implementation.

She has helped many clients deal with difficult areas of taxation law, including GST and CGT, working with them to find a solution, even when the legislation is ambiguous. Beyond taxation, she helps clients with their management reporting, cash flow forecasts and budgeting. Karen also has extensive experience with training and use of Reckon Accounts (formerly QuickBooks) and experience with MYOB.

Karen enjoys working with clients to structure their businesses to achieve the best outcomes. She helps establish tax-effective structures for new business as well as advising on business acquisitions and sales. As business groups grow and change, so must their structures – and Karen can assist in this area too.

Karen excels in advising clients on difficult areas of taxation law, working with them to achieve the best possible outcomes.
