Justin Walton, Founder and Managing Director

Our Founder

I am Justin Walton and I set up PLS Tax Solutions in 2015. My tax career began in the late 1980’s and has led me to tax leadership and management roles at KPMG, BDO (Stoy Hayward), MBS and John Laing Group plc. I also spent three years as a Non-Executive Director of a small facilities management business.

In my time as Head of Tax at John Laing Group, it became clear to me that there are a great many businesses of all sizes that do not have people in designated roles to lead and manage their tax affairs. These businesses are usually reliant on their advisors and will often have somebody in-house with “tax” on their very long list of responsibilities. While this may work and tick boxes, it is far from optimal for many businesses as they tend to lack a coherent strategy on tax and an ability to deliver that strategy for the benefit of the business. Focus is the key word here. The largest and most proactive businesses have a designated person or team to lead and manage their tax affairs, risks and issues. This focus means that they are proactive leading to increased value, profit and cash and better tax risk management and mitigation strategies. Having focus can only benefit the business, its people, its owners and other key stakeholders.

I established PLS Tax Solutions to help other businesses to get more focus around tax and related matters. Through our core services we help businesses of all sizes to be more focussed and to ensure that they handle their tax affairs, risks, issues and problems proactively and efficiently.

I am a Chartered Tax Advisor, member of the Association of Taxation Technicians, member of The Institute of Leadership and Management and a member of Institute of Directors. As a business owner myself, I am in a good position to empathise with my clients and be solution-focussed.

Solving Tax Problems

We solve tax and tax-related problems for businesses of all sizes. We start at the planning phase and while many firms stop short of supporting implementation, we have capability to see projects and advice through implementation. Businesses often find that when they engage professional tax firms they engage at partner level but work with more junior staff. In our experience, business and finance leaders prefer to work with senior tax people and that is precisely what happens when you work with us with quality service at the heart of how we work.
