Corporate & Personal Tax Manager

Jo Shaw


I am a Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Advisor, boasting over two decades of extensive experience in both corporate and personal tax matters. My professional journey commenced at an accountancy firm in Worcestershire, where I initially honed my skills as an accountant. Following my qualification as a Chartered Tax Advisor, I sought to further expand my horizons by joining larger accountancy firms in Birmingham, where I dedicated eight years to mastering the intricacies of complex tax work.

In 2020, I embarked on a new chapter in my career by becoming a part of the dynamic team at Harbour Key. My time here has been marked by a rich tapestry of experiences, as each client presents a unique set of requirements and challenges. It has become abundantly clear that there is no such thing as a "simple" tax return; each case demands its own tailored approach. This constant variety keeps my role both intellectually stimulating and professionally fulfilling.

Within my current position, I collaborate closely with our restructuring and tax planning experts, ensuring that our tax advice is not only comprehensive but also meticulously documented and promptly executed.

Away from the office, I indulge in a range of activities that contribute to my personal well-being. Hiking offers a chance to connect with nature and unwind, while practices like moxibustion, cupping, and massage underscore my belief in the importance of maintaining our physical and mental health. I subscribe to the notion that our well-being should be accorded the same care and attention as our cars and tax returns—regularly attended to by a qualified and compassionate professional.
