Parul is a Senior Tax Manager at KLR. Joining the team through a merger in 2009, Parul did not specifically choose KLR as her workplace. However, it has turned out to be one of the best career decisions. As she puts it, “This is as good as it gets.”
How do you explain what you do to others not in the industry?
Yes, I am an accountant. Sounds boring? Its far from that! Compliance work associated with tax returns is definitely an important aspect of my work however with ever-changing changing tax environment and laws I am equally engaged in tax advisory, planning and consulting for my clients that range from high net worth individuals, real estate professionals and many more.
Describe a typical day for you
My day starts early with having responded to e-mails before I gear up to drop my three year old to her day care and get in front of my computers. From there on it’s a juggle between client meetings, meetings with partners and staff regarding client, administrative or training matters as well as reviewing projects, brainstorming and strategizing to help clients achieve their goals. On several occasions I could be attending meet and greets and networking events extending information about our services and connecting with people from different professional areas, such as lawyers, to enhance interrelationships.
Why did you choose KLR?
Although I did not intentionally choose KLR, it happened to be the best career decision for me! The firm that I previously worked for was acquired by KLR in January 2009. The merger was as good as it gets and there was no looking back for me. I am surrounded by the best professionals in the industry and excellent clients- the two most important things for me.
What’s your favorite part of your job?
Working with people who care and the clients who appreciate makes each day worth everything. I enjoy being mentor to staff and the value I can bring to them professionally and technically.
What are you passionate about?
That is a difficult question for me! I am passionate about everything I do. Apart from my job and family I love nature photography. An ideal vacation is me, my family and my camera! Mediation and holistic lifestyle is another important aspect of my life that helps me maintain my dynamic equilibrium.
