Justin Walton, Managing Director

Our Founder

I am Justin Walton and I set up PLS Tax Solutions in 2015.  My career has included 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.

My approach is to:

Provide business owners with focus, support and direction to help with financial management and control

Help businesses address the tax aspects of business challenges, tax disputes and commercial projects by helping them solve the associated tax problems

Work alongside existing advisors and in-house teams to improve business tax efficiency 

Mentor in-house staff allowing them to develop their tax leadership roles

Put businesses and business owners in control of their tax affairs so they pay the right tax and benefit from available tax relief

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.
