Dominique Neil EP Tax

Dominique Neil

Practice Manager & Client Manager

  • BA(Hons) Education
  • Payroll Diploma
  • Anti Money Laundering Supervisor – MLRO
  • 10+ years as HR administrator in the British Army
  • IAM basic HR admin level 2.
  • Higher Education Diploma – Health Sciences

Dominique is our friendly and much-loved practice manager. She started at EP Tax as an administrator, with absolutely zero desire for a long-term career in the accountancy sector. But…we managed to talk her into sticking around and she’s now in her third year at EP Tax – maybe it was all our accountancy and tax related jokes which she loves so much (not!)

After joining EP tax, we promoted her twice within 6 months and offered her a commission contract to manage her own clients; she specialises in accountancy and tax for sub-contractors and childminders. Her practice manager role includes overseeing all internal matters such as HR and employee progression, GDPR, IT, insurance, customer and supplier contracts etc. She has also recently completed a payroll course and processes the majority of our client monthly payrolls.

Prior to working for EP Tax, Dominique served almost 12 years in the army, doing a 6 month tour in Afghanistan in 2012/13; maybe that’s why she’s so badass. She also had her own business providing services to babies and young mums. In 2020, she completed her final year at University with a BA(Hons) degree in education.

Dominique is extremely involved in the local community and has 3 young children. On the very rare occasions she has some free time, she enjoys catching up with friends, competing in sports challenges and watching films; her favourite film is The Green Mile.
