Mala graduated with a 1st class honours degree from Imperial College, London and is a fluent Italian speaker. She qualified as a Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Adviser, and joined Lancaster Knox as a Tax Manager in July 2018.

Mala gained experience in a range of tax specialties including corporate, personal and expatriate tax, before focusing on Tax Investigations at a boutique tax consultancy. She developed her background in Tax Investigations and Dispute Resolution acting mainly for entrepreneurial individuals and their businesses in a range of HMRC interventions, from local compliance enquiries to complex technical arguments and serious investigations into suspected tax fraud. She has extensive experience with voluntary disclosures to HMRC, under campaigns and disclosure opportunities (e.g. Liechtenstein Disclosure Facility, Let Property Campaign and Worldwide Disclosure Facility) as well as disclosures direct to HMRC’s specialist teams. The taxes dealt with in the enquiries and disclosures include both direct and indirect taxes, and the structures involved range from simple bank accounts held offshore to more complex structures with trusts, corporate entities and property. She has also been involved in unwinding various structures following disclosures to HMRC and has some tax advisory experience.
