Karen McDonagh


Karen advises on a range of tax issues and has amassed over 25 years’ worth of skills, knowledge and experience as a Tax Manager.  Her breadth of knowledge is complimented by the broad range of clients seeking her expertise, not only self-employed individuals and entrepreneurial businesses but also a touch of glamour with sports personalities, through to theatre, film and TV. 

In her daily role at NLP each situation requires its own approach and advice needs to be tailored to the client, which ensures her day is always interesting.  In addition to her role as Tax Manager, Karen is responsible for the day to day running of the tax department and its 14 team members.   

Outside work, Karen is a busy mum and family life provides the perfect counter balance to the technical demands of daily tax advice.
