New tax partner hires at BDO

BDO has added two new partners to its tax team. 

The UK’s sixth-largest accountancy firm said Karen McGrory and Jane Mulholland will both join the firm in November, with McGrory joining the expatriate team in London and Mulholland becoming part of the corporate tax team in Southampton.

McGrory trained with Coopers & Lybrand prior to working at Deloitte & Touche and KPMG, where she progressed to senior tax manager. She joined RSM Tenon in 2008 as an associate director and progressed to partner in 2010. Over the last 22 years, she has specialised in international mobility tax and HR issues, with deep expertise on expatriate tax matters.

Mulholland qualified with PwC, where she progressed to tax manager. Following a period as an accountancy lecturer with Manchester Metropolitan University and in self-employment, she joined Arthur Andersen as a senior corporate tax manager. She joined BDO in Southampton in 2003 as tax director, before holding the same post at PwC in Southampton from 2009.

Paul Eagland, head of tax, BDO said: “We’re seeing an increasing amount of work within corporate tax and specialist areas such as expatriate services. Though much of the tax work that ambitious businesses need is still UK-based, there’s an uplift in international tax requirements from our clients, both in London and regionally.”
