Karen Bullen

Head of Manchester and Leeds Centres / 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 for the Chartered Taxation Advisor (CTA) qualification the exams I lecture on are Awareness, Advisory Individuals, Advisory Owner Managed Businesses (OMB) and Application OMB.

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 run the Manchester and Leeds centres. Manchester is now in its fifth year and proving very successful; Leeds is a new venture with great prospects.
I also have responsibility for a major client.

I am also responsible for the VAT Compliance Diploma as lead tutor / writer / examiner.  
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 Advisor and a member also of the ATT.

In addition to my Tolley work I also 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.
