How Carol is building a better working world

“On a day-to-day basis, I apply my extensive technical knowledge to provide quality services, personalised for private clients. Working directly with individuals allows me to understand how tax issues and reporting impacts their lives and decision-making, and where we can add value to them as they deal with complex cross-border tax issues.
