My Strategic Tax Consultant

“Be the best you can be”

My Strategic Tax Consultant is a suite of products for in-house tax professionals and for the tax leaders in business. We have been fortunate to work with people in successful in-house tax teams which affords us great insight into what makes the best exactly that.

Our approach is to offer mentoring and coaching-led support around key areas in most tax functions to help you move opportunities, issues and problems along to the next level and ultimately help you to solve them. This ranges from helping you to design or re-focus your tax team, to helping you set a tax strategy that is deliverable in your business or brainstorming how to deal with up and coming business issues, tax issues or new law.

If you are new to a business, looking to move yourself or team members to the next level or want to re-focus your role or that of your team and just need someone independent to bounce ideas around with please contact us. Our people have over 15,000 hours experience working and progressing in in-house tax teams so bring real insight and experience to the table. We have been there, seen it and done it. Not being part of your business or tax advisory panel means our only interest is in your success and the success of your team and we complement the informal support and mentoring networks and programmes you may already be a part of.

Here are some suggested topics but we will design a programme that works for you:

  • Tax team performance in the context of the business and its ownership
  • Tax control and governance
  • Implementing a tax strategy in a business
  • Tax skill set changes
  • Tax digitalisation
  • Criminal tax evasion
  • Personal development in tax
  • Review of your year
  • Corporate tax - challenging the status quo
  • VAT - challenging the status quo
  • People taxes - challenging the status quo
  • Taking the business international
  • Preparing for appraisal season



"It has been a very informative and thought-provoking process and for me particularly, a safe space to express and formulate my thoughts."

“Given the fledgling nature of our team and your successful history in the tax profession, the opportunity to have you as an independent sounding board to the senior management team was a very attractive proposition. You have succeeded in this regard. Through careful listening to our objectives and concerns for the team you have challenged assumptions whilst remaining pragmatic. Your considered approach and valuable experience has aided team direction, bringing an additional layer of confidence to strategic decisions, whilst motivating the team to deliver its wider aspirations.”

“I have known Justin for more than 20 years and he has been a client of mine for eight years. I like the way that Justin works with his advisors - he treats them as service providers not as suppliers of products and therefore tends to buy on a relationship basis. This means he gets the service he wants, advice that is fit for purpose and he pays the right price. In my experience, he effectively handles a complex mix of international and domestic advisory and tax compliance and reporting whilst ensuring that stakeholders are kept up to speed on key matters. Justin also leads effective teams. I would recommend Justin to businesses looking for senior level tax support confident in the knowledge that his personal approach would bring positive results for them."
