Karen Bullen

Head of Manchester Centre / Senior Tutor at Tolley

I have several roles within Tolley Exam Training.

I am a senior tutor teaching on all Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT) qualification exam papers, and lecturing on Awareness, Advisory Individuals, Advisory Owner Managed Businesses (OMB) and Application OMB for the Chartered Taxation Adviser (CTA) qualification.

I am the subject manager for Advisory OMB and Application OMB so I deal with syllabus updates, Finance Act updating, selection of material, exam feedback etc for these two exam papers.

I am also responsible for the VAT Compliance Diploma as lead tutor / writer / examiner.

I run the Manchester centre. Manchester is now in its eleventh year and proving very successful. I also have responsibility for several major clients.

I have been lecturing and writing in the field of taxation qualifications for over 25 years having previously qualified as a Chartered Accountant in the taxation division of Arthur Andersen.

I am a Chartered Tax Adviser and a member of the ATT.

In addition to my Tolley work I lecture on the student conferences run by the ATT and CIOT (Chartered Institute of Taxation).

My specialist areas are Personal Taxation (all aspects including IHT and Trust plus overseas aspects), Taxation of Owner Managed Businesses and VAT.
