Welcome to PLS


I am Justin Walton and I formed PLS in 2015 following a long and successful career spent in large accountancy firms and at a global investment business.


I have taken the best and most impactful experiences of my corporate career and turned them into practical and insightful solutions for my clients.




Property, Construction and Infrastructure


I work with investors in small property portfolios, other professional services firms looking to offer tax expertise to their clients and large corporates.


My focus is on property investors and developers, family construction firms, infrastructure investors and managers and on project finance transactions.


If you are planning to build a property portfolio or already have one, take a look at Total Performance Management.  This is a managed service for portfolio investors to actively manage post-tax returns and capital growth.


I also support clients on pre-investment reviews, buy/sell decision-making and transactions, diligence, HMRC disputes and ongoing evaluation.


Coming Soon - Financial Education and Support


I am really excited to be in the process of building my new, online financial education and support solution.  It is coming soon so if you would like to be included on my mailing list, please provide your details here.




I am building communities where people in similar positions come together to share insights, learn from each other and stay connected.


These currently focus on niche professionals and businesssectors.






About me

I formed PLS in 2015 following a long and successful career at KPMG, BDO (Stoy Hayward), MBS and John Laing Group plc.  For more than twenty years, I have specialised in advising the Property, Construction and Infrastructure sectors.


I also spent three years as a Non-Executive Director of a small facilities management business and more than 10 years as a senior school governor with oversight on strategy, finance, premises and people.


I am a Chartered Tax Advisor, a Member of the Association of Taxation Technicians, a Member of The Institute of Leadership and Management and a Member of Institute of Directors.


I advocate self-learning and developing from experience and this combination of formal education with a curious mind and being a business owner and property investor myself, places me in an excellent position to empathise with and be solution-focussed for my clients.




Networking with peers in other businesses is a great way to stay connected, share insights and learn from each other.

Property, Construction & Infrastructure

Built on more than 20 years advising in the sector, I advise property investors and developers, construction firms, infrastructure investors and managers and on project finance transactions.  I have been Group Head of Tax at a global investment group and that fantastic experience has enabled me to leverage impactful solutions for my PLS clients, of all sizes.


My focus is goals-related and often begins with listening, diagnosing then identifying solutions before helping my clients to implement those solutions and manage their businesses where required.


My advice typically covers support on pre-investment decisions, strategic planning, structuring and reorganisations, buy/sell decisions and transactions, diligence and HMRC disputes.


I work with clients including investors with small property portfolios, family construction firms, other professional services firms and FTSE-listed businesses.


Total Performance Management is a performance-led approach to helping you to achieve your property investment goals.   I focus on optimising the money that will actually be left in your bank account, after taxes, rather than on the headline grabbing yield and growth figures.
